My Mechanical/electric back up gyro failed -- $800 to rebuild it, so bought the AV30C to replace it. AWESOME little unit -- installed in my airplane in just a couple hours -- delightful features, great display, good cost -- why wouldnt you just add one as a back up? I am very impressed how well damped the display is and the unit sits right by my AI and TC, and the slip/skid ball and the horizon is spot-on. No autopilot support, so it cannot be primary for me -- but I would highly recommend this product.

Installed AV-30-C as a back-up Attitude Indicator (AI), replacing a vacuum AI. The installation was very simple, and the setup straight forward and fast with the menus. The display is bright and provides good contrast in sunlight.

Replaced my slip/skid in my supercub. So far I am impressed which the av30. Definitely get the OAT prove so you can have the density altitude. I plan on doing some trips out to Utah this fall and this was one of the main reasons for my purchase. Display is bright and you can customize what information you want displayed or just use it as a standalone attitude Would definitely recommend.

I purchased two units for a Cessna 172N. This was a simple installation. I have about 10 hours of flight time on the instruments thus far and they are an absolute winner. It was worth the wait. The displays have more info packed into it than the large cabin biz jet I usually fly. Couple of things to consider though if you want your install to go smoothly . . . Youll need a cover and gasket to go over where the vacuum pump used to go on the accessory case. I used the SL60430 cover and SL8313 gasket. Youll need a couple of 2 amp circuit breakers. Youll need the tubing and tee fittings to connect to the static and pitot system Order the Davtron temp probe so you can have TAS and DALT displayed. I used part number 11-04603.

Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: Can this Uavionix AV30 be used as a backup AI in a certified aircraft?

This largely depends on on the STC of what is being backed up. Contact uAvionix for details.

Q: Is the Uavionix AV-30 unit authorized for certified aircraft?

Yes, the Uavionix AV-30, part # 11-17556, is an FAA Approved unit. It can be installed in certified aircraft.

Q: Will the certified AV-30 be able to drive my STEC-30 with the installed gps?

Per the manufacturer, there is no function to drive autopilots at this moment. However, they are working on something that will adapt to legacy STEC autopilots.

Q: Can this use the GPS from my uavionics skybeacon?

Per the installation manual Revision A on page 7, it states that the optional GPS interface is Moving Map / Aviation Protocol output provided by most panel mounted GPS units. This cannot use the Skybeacon GPS signal.

Q: Can the Uavionix AV-30 be interfaced with legacy king kx155 nav/comm?

Per the installation manual Rev. A, it will not connect to a NAV/COM.

Q: Will there be an analog converter for the Uavionix AV-30 so I can use this as the attitude reference for my century IV auto pilot?

Yes. The manufacturer is creating a solution to allow this unit to connect to an autopilot. However, at this time, we are not aware of what autopilots will be available to function with the unit.

Q: My classic Cessna reads in mph, can I change IAS from kts to mph on the Uavionix AV30?

Yes, indicated AirSpeed could either be KTS or MPH on this unit.

Q: you say it has been certified, but uavionix site says not yet...

In the overview we show that certification is pending. This SKU will be the certified unit, so we are selling it as certified. We will not receive or ship any units until they are FAA Approved and we receive the certified units from Uavionix.

Q: Regarding the UAVIONIX AV-30 PRIMARY FLIGHT DISPLAY - CERTIFIED: Will we need 2 units (1 for AI and 1 for DG) in a certified aircraft if we would like to remove our vacuum pump? Can it serve as primary for both all within one unit?

Per the manufacturer, upon approval you will need 2 units for AI and DG. If the installation leaves no instruments that require the vacuum source, it can be removed. However, the removal of the vacuum source is not included in the AV-30 STC.

Q: Does the HSI on the Uavionix AV-30 provide vertical (glideslope) guidance?

Per Manufacturer there is no vertical guidance at all. There is only the horizontal steering indicator when in DG Mode.
