uAvionix receives STC for tailBeaconX

Posted by uAvionix Australia on

Overnight, uAvionix announced it received the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) and initial Approved Model List (AML) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the revolutionary tailBeaconX 1090 MHz ADS-B transponder.


tailBeaconX is a highly integrated 1090 MHz ADS-B transponder that replaces a rear navigation

light by combining it with ADS-B OUT / Mode S transponder, SBAS GPS, antennas, and rear LED position light. The initial STC-AML utilises the uAvionix AV-30-C multi-function display to be installed as the control head. In this configuration, the AV-30-C is able to leverage the tailBeaconX SBAS GPS for its GPS track display. In the future, uAvionix anticipates adding additional means of control through uAvionix and third-party devices

The Approved Model List (AML) for tailBeaconX contains over 550 aircraft make and models for which this STC is valid, including most major models from Cessna, Piper, Mooney, Beechcraft, and others. Additional models, including light twins, are expected to be approved in the next months.

uAvionix Australia is expected to receive its first shipment of pre-orders within weeks. Interested buyers can pre-register by contacting sales@uavionix.com.au.
