Flying in busy skies, or in remote areas means that many pilots want to exploit the visibility and safety that ADS-B Out provides. ADS-B In traffic receivers, used in general aviation today, allow a pilot to view ADS-B Out equipped aircraft on a suitable cockpit display.
The TN72 meets the position requirements of FAR 91.227 and can be used by Light Sport and Experimental aircraft in the U.S. to meet the 2020 ADS-B Out mandate. The TN72 is a highly affordable solution, used in combination with a Trig transponder. The TN72 is also well suited to use in gliders, as an affordable way to become ADS-B Out equipped. In the U.S. certified gliders with an electrical system will require a TSO C-145 GPS to be used, our TN70.
Wherever ADS-B technology is used, it is worth highlighting that most ADS-B In traffic receivers will only display aircraft traffic that generate a non-zero quality indicator – (also referred to as SIL 1). In contrast a zero quality indicator (referred to as SIL 0) ADS-B Out, is ignored and not displayed on a traffic display, rendering an aircraft invisible.
Using lower grade SIL 0 equipment your aircraft will be hidden from view. But you don’t have to compromise your electronic visibility when you fly with Trig. A TN72 will be visible across all ADS-B In traffic platforms. By installing a TN72 with your Trig transponder you will have a certified collision avoidance safety benefit – that’s easy to install and proven to work with Trig transponders.
