SkyEcho is a portable ADS-B IN/OUT transceiver approved by the UK CAA. SkyEcho transmits your aircraft position, altitude, course, and speed on 1090MHz ADS-B, enhancing your ability to ‘See, BE SEEN, and Avoid’ other aircraft. Configurable as a transmitter or receiver only, SkyEcho transmits 1090ES ADS-B where transmitting electronic conspicuity devices are allowed, while receiving 1090ES ADS-B, 978MHz ADS-B (where available), or FLARM® (in Europe). SkyEcho exceeds the minimum capability required for a UK CAA CAP 1391 ECD device.
SkyEcho includes a TSO certified GPS and barometric altimeter, providing accurate and high integrity position data to you, as well as surrounding traffic and Air Traffic Control.
SkyEcho is also able to receive Weather, Flight Information Services (FIS) and Traffic Information Services (TIS) over 978MHz UAT where available.
