Avidyne Corporation is a market-leader in the design and manufacturing of integrated avionics systems for general aviation (GA) aircraft. Avidyne is headquartered in Lincoln, MA, with facilities in Melbourne, FL. and Westerville (Columbus), OH.
Avidyne designs and manufactures integrated instruments, flight displays, VHF and GPS-based navigation, communication, and data link transceivers, digital flight control systems, as well as a range of ADS-B, traffic detection and weather detection sensors.
Experienced entrepreneur and pilot Dan Schwinn founded Avidyne in 1994 with the mission of modernizing GA avionics by applying advanced technology in order to improve safety and increase aircraft utility. “As a pilot and aircraft owner, I was struck by how little GA cockpits had changed over the last 30 years,” said Schwinn. “I saw huge potential to develop a core technology and define a new generation of avionics that improve flying safety.”
The company set a new standard in ease of use with its full line of panel-mounted avionics, including the IFD540 and IFD440 FMS/GPS/NAV/COMs with Hybrid Touch, Page & Tab user interface, easy GeoFill™ and Airway flight planning, and integrated Bluetooth® and WiFi capability. In addition, the IFD540 and IFD440 are plug-and-play, direct replacements for obsolete GNS530/430-series navigators, dramatically simplifying installation and overall cost when upgrading. Rounding out Avidyne’s avionics stack offering are the AMX240 audio panel with integrated marker Beacon and 6-place, voice-activated intercom, the AXP340 Mode S ADS-B OUT Transponder, AXP322 remote-mounted ADS-B OUT Transponder, and SkyTrax100, SkyTrax200, and SkyTrax210 978MHz ADS-B IN and IN/OUT solutions.
