Trig #Avionics and STC partner Peregrine unveiled an expanded line of STCs for installing the TSO’d TT31 transponder with GPS input for an approved #ADS-B “out” solution covering a broad spectrum of Part 23 aircraft. The announcement at #EAA AirVenture 2015 provides an upgrade path for aircraft equipped with #Garmin’s WAAS GNS and GTN navigators.
“I’m pleased to share that our #FAA ADS-B STC program now includes all Garmin GTN navigators,” said Trig CEO Andy Davis.
Trig’s TT31 Mode S transponder broadcasts a 1090ES—for extended squitter—output, and is compatible with the installation trays and antenna hardware used by BendixKing KT76A and KT78A Mode C transponders. That makes the Trig TT31 a simpler—and lower-cost—installation than most alternatives.
“We understand that pilots want a low cost and simple upgrade path to ADS-B, and the TT31 fully meets this brief,” he said.
Peregrine has already earned STC coverage for Trig transponders with various GPS devices, including Trig’s TN70 and the Free #Flight 1201 GPS sources.
