Trig Avionics is landing at AERO – with affordable ADS-B and 8.33 radios

April 13, 2018

Trig Avionics, leaders in compact certified avionics are bringing their latest TN72 GPS Position Source to Aero Friedrichshafen.

Pilots attending the show will be able to see the highly compact TN72 unit – it’s easy to install and an ideal upgrade to a Trig transponder. At only £ 299 the TN72 is one of the easiest ways to become ADS-B Out equipped. ADS-B surveillance technology is growing in popularity and it makes sense to equip with a Trig transponder and TN72. This will improve your aircraft electronic visibility and flight safety.

Trig Marketing Manager Jon Roper said, “In busy skies VFR pilots with a Trig transponder can become ADS-B equipped, using a TN72 GPS Position Source. This is a logical upgrade and a small price to pay for the benefit of improved safety. Recent EASA approval of the TN72 to ETSO-C199 means that a TN72 can be ordered now for delivery this month.”

The TN72 is a certified TABS device (Traffic Awareness Beacon System) it provides visibility to all ADS-B traffic receivers. Trig aim to provide a free EASA Minor Change for popular aircraft types in the near future. Trig offers the TA70, a compatible GPS antenna that is certified to TSO-C190.

Trig’s compact and stack 8.33 radios will also be available at the show – ideal for pilots who are yet to fit an 8.33 radio. Jon Roper said, “Growing numbers of airfields are becoming active, using 8.33 channels. It makes sense for pilots to get 8.33 equipped now, ahead of any local 8.33 deadline dates. Having a Trig 8.33 radio will remove the risk of fines and regulatory action. Already it is becoming harder to fly cross-country without inadvertently transmitting across an 8.33 channel if equipped with an older 25 kHz radio.”

The TY96 stack radio and TY91 compact radios from Trig both provide aircraft owners with a high quality certified 8.33 radio, packed with pilot friendly features. Trig products are ‘better by design’, simple to install and operate giving pilots the best mix of features, quality and value. Trig has an excellent reputation for customer support and offers a two year warranty from the date of installation.

Visitors to AERO will find Trig in Hall A5 at stand 501.
