Supremely-capable CTLS features Dynon SkyView and Garmin 696

"A New Year's gift for your instrument panel." That's one way to describe Flight Design's striking implementation of the dual 10-inch Dynon SkyView screens flanking the Garmin big-screen 696 GPS. Combined with the Garmin GTX 330 Mode S transponder supplying Traffic Information Service (TIS) to the 696 and the SkyView, LSA owners can have impressive gear at a low price. Flight Design USA observes, however, that the SkyView 696 TIS digital panel layout is not approved for flight into actual instrument conditions.

Dynon's SkyView SVS - featuring a futuristic Synthetic Vision System - comes factory installed in a top-of-the-line category Flight Design CTLS aircraft. The impressive system offers a major advance in electronic flight displays for the VFR pilot, showing terrain - even if the pilot cannot see it through the windscreen - plus real-time traffic and even runways and taxiways at a surprisingly affordable price.

"On a new CTLS the bundled SkyView 696 TIS option set offers even more than the standard dual Dynon EFIS systems found on most of our aircraft," says Flight Design USA President Tom Peghiny. "The spacious 10-inch screens are easy to read, easy to use and the standard virtual terrain modeling gives you unprecedented situational awareness at nighttime or under marginal visibility conditions." Garmin's 696 supplies GPS data to the Dynon screens and the Kansas company's Mode S transponder provides both 696 and SkyView with airborne traffic information. For both Dynon large screens, the enlarged Garmin GPS, and the TIS transponder, Flight Design USA has reduced the installed package cost to just $12,075.

SkyView on the CTLS debuted at Sebring 2010, the first installation after the Oregon company released the new product just days earlier. It has been shipping on new Flight Design aircraft for the past year as part of an upgrade path to advanced instrument panels and combines with a new two-tone interior to create a supremely-capable Light-Sport Aircraft. Along with the helicopter-like visibility of the CTLS the integration of real time traffic, terrain and weather increase safety and decrease pilot workload. "This is truly the integration of advanced technology to make things easier, not harder," explained Peghiny. "Stop by your nearest Flight Design dealer to see one or put one on order today! Delivery slots are available for spring 2011 shipment."

National Sales Manager, Johnn Gilmore added, "The enhanced handling of the CTLS for cross country flying and the ease of use of the Dynon SkyView Synthetic Vision System make the SkyView 696 TIS setup a great avionics combination for Flight Schools that also want rental revenue from cross country use or for the discerning individual who wants the best."
