FreeFlight gets the go-ahead for datalink ADS-B
For customers utilising the RANGR series, FreeFlight Systems is currently offering a $2,500 trade-in to upgrade to a new datalink transceiver, which has model list STC for Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus and Piper aircraft.

FreeFlight Systems, specialising in avionics design, development and manufacturing, has received model list STC for its datalink ADS-B solution approval covering over 400 FAA Part 23 aircraft airframes for OEMs including Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus and Piper.

The datalink ADS-B system, available in both receiver and transceiver options, has received five certifications for ADS-B: transmission on the 978 UAT frequency; receiving flight information broadcast services (FIS-B); receiving and processing aircraft surveillance application systems; receiving traffic information systems broadcasting (TIS-B); and global positioning systems. The unit interfaces with traffic alert systems and traffic collision avoidance systems and supports ethernet, RS-232 and ARINC 429 data interfaces.

The robust and reliable solution is designed to interface with a broad range of aircraft avionics and tablet applications and also provides a flexible option for upgrading technologies and displays. FreeFlight Systems' latest ADS-B device is a powerful addition to its extensive list of avionic systems and technologies.

“This is exciting news for our customers,” enthuses Ashley Ring, VP sales and marketing of FreeFlight Systems. “Many of our customers already flying with our RANGR series can upgrade to the new datalink ADS-B transceiver to improve their situational awareness.”
