The Dynon DX15 is a limited edition aviation band handheld transceiver. We created it as part of our plans to eventually supplement the SkyView Glass Panel System with a panel mounted radio. We used it as a way to learn about radio design, FCC Part 87 certification, and radio production. Similar handheld radios typically sell for about $250.

  • Extremely compact and lightweight. Perfect for your flight bag or clipping onto your belt.
  • Standard Dynon three year warranty.
  • High capacity Li-Ion battery is included.
  • Backlit screen and keypad.
  • 100 Memory Channels, scannable in banks.
  • Quick recall of the 10 most recent frequencies.
  • Adjustable side tone; hear your own voice when connected to an external headset.
  • Battery remaining/charging indicator.
  • Dedicated Emergency button for quick tuning of 121.5.

The DX15 Aviation Radio is currently not in active production. It is still supported by Dynon Avionics. No dealers are known to have any remaining stock at this time.
