We’ve been informed that they are currently taking orders for end of August deliveries of the all new
SkyBeacon at a cost under $2,000. The SkyBeacon mounts in ten minutes to where your existing left
(red) navigation/strobe light is located and can be installed by any A & P mechanic. The unit has a built
in LED red navigation light, strobe light, WAAS GPS and ADS-B “Out” transmitter and you don’t even
have to change your panel mounted transponder.

single aircraft to help speed up the STC process.
