Speedy avionics installations for builders

Dynon offers prewired, modular kits

As the capability and integration of modern avionics have increased, so has the complexity of installing the electronics and getting the boxes to communicate with each other.

In response, Dynon Avionics has begun a FastTrack product line that allows experimental aircraft builders to buy prewired avionics with harnesses, mounting trays, and brackets ready to install in their aircraft.

The move is meant to speed avionics installations and avoid errors. It also promises to reduce shop time at specialty avionics firms, many of which are facing long backlogs.

“For builders that want to take to the sky as fast as possible, the flagship FastTrack Essentials packages include modules, brackets, and network cables already pre-assembled and connected, ready to rivet to the panel,” said Michael Schofield, Dynon marketing director.

Retail prices for FastTrack Essentials packages are $1,995 for VFR panels and $2,565 for IFR versions.
