FARGO, North Dakota (June 26, 2018) — Appareo has received FAA approval of an expanded Approved Model List (AML) for the company’s Stratus ADS-B “out” transponders. In addition to the previous STCs for popular Cessna, Piper and Mooney models, the AML-STC now includes Cirrus, Diamond, and AeroSedan. The company will exhibit its full line of Stratus products next month at the annual EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 fly-in and expo.
Appareo provides cost-effective, easily-installed certified avionics for fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft, and has continued adding to the AML-STC since the initial certification of Stratus ESG in 2016, based on a continued increase of market demand.
Both Stratus ES and Stratus ESG are certified 1090 Extended Squitter (ES) ADS-B “out” transponders designed with the common 1.65” form factor to easily replace existing transponders. Stratus ESG includes built-in WAAS GPS for one-box 2020 compliance, while Stratus ES will make an aircraft rule-compliant when paired with popular navigators such as Garmin 430W, 530W, 6XX, 7XX, or Avidyne IFD440 or IFD540.
At $2,495 MSRP, Stratus ES is one of the most affordable 1090 ES options for ADS-B “out” compliance. With built-in WAAS GPS, Stratus ESG retails for $2,995.
Stratus ES and Stratus ESG can be connected to an ADS-B “in” receiver for the complete ADS-B “in/out” experience. They are the only transponders that can share an aircraft’s external antenna with a portable ADS-B receiver in the cockpit, which greatly enhances the signal strength of the receiver. This feature is compatible with many popular brands of ADS-B receivers; a variety of interface kits are available.
