Trig announces TN70 – WAAS GPS receiver ADS-B Out solution

June 14, 2014

Aircraft owners looking for a complete ADS-B Out solution can now achieve this – thanks to Trig Avionics. The new TN70 is a WAAS GPS with companion Antenna, optimised for use with Trig products.

Andy Davis CEO at Trig said, “Equipage rates for ADS-B are set to grow, our latest TN70 product provides aircraft owners with a ‘single source’ compliant solution. The TN70 is easy to install and perfectly suited for use with any Trig transponder. The TN70 provides pilots with an exciting and cost effective way to become mandate ready at an affordable price.”

Trig already has a solid reputation for producing class leading transponders. The ‘plug and play’ TT31 is the easiest retro-fit for the popular KT76A. Trig’s TT22 compact transponder is the smallest ADS-B capable transponder in the world – enabling an install in the tightest panel space. The TN70 continues this theme, it requires no panel space. Installed discretely, as a standalone GPS, it allows an aircraft owner to retain and use existing panel equipment. The TN70 has been made available through a partnership with Accord Technology, but is sold and supported by Trig.

Trig’s STC partner Peregrine of Denver has a growing STC list that can be accessed by Trig customers. David Rankin at Peregrine said “Trig’s latest TN70 has been subject to thorough testing as part of the STC process, it passed with flying colours. I’m certain this equipment combination will have a broad appeal. Pilots want to become ADS-B compliant with the minimum amount of hassle and expense, now Trig has made this possible.” Peregrine will assist certified aircraft owners with the STC process by offering STC information and registering each installation;

Andy Davis said “As experimental aircraft owners can carry out their own installation we expect the TN70 to be popular – particularly for customers who already have a Trig transponder.” Oshkosh 2014 visitors who want to find out more can visit Trig in Hangar C, booth 3159.

The TN70 has a list price of $3,500 and is available to order at the show or via Approved Trig Dealers.
