The SkyView System

You want to fly your plane, not mess with a computer. From the beginning, Dynon pilots designed SkyView HDX to have a clean and intuitive pilot interface through its on-screen buttons and joystick knobs. Whether you're new to glass cockpit technology or fly 777s at work, SkyView HDX is made for you.

A SkyView HDX System starts with the display, available in 10” and 7” sizes. Mix and match up to 3 of them in your panel. From there, you'll add a suite of components and modules to tailor your system's features and functionality to your aircraft's mission. We have a variety of resources to help you plan your system, including the Dynon Catalog, and a Price List/Ordering Guide.

New to glass? SkyView's "six-pack" mode bridges retro analog gauges with the state-of-the-art.

The tools you need to completely manage your powerplant, including the industry's only automatic EGT lean/rich mixture detection that requires no pilot action and the most accurate percent power calculations possible. Modern cars know their range to empty and instantaneous MPG; Shouldn't your airplane?

Equip with the SV-ADSB-472 (US-only) to gain graphical NEXRAD weather radar imagery, text METARs, TAFs, winds aloft, traffic, and more.

Point at airports, airspaces and more for instant information about them right on the map. From there, one button press gets you virtually all the information available for airports, including TPA, frequencies, services, charts, weather, and even the airport facility directory remarks.

Voice alerts detail specific warning and caution conditions as they occur. A tone that gains intensity as your angle-of-attack increases helps you grease your landings and avoid stalls before they happen.

SkyView's navigation engine flies like you would. It anticipates waypoints and turns just before them to avoid needless overshoots. You can even display the graphics and waypoints from external IFR GPS flight plans.

You shouldn't have to be a computer programmer to install your avionics: An intuitive, hierarchical setup menu helps you configure your system with ease.

SkyView Possibilities

You'd be surprised what you can fit in your aircraft when you choose SkyView. The widescreen format was designed to integrate perfectly in aircraft panels, which are often height-limited. SkyView's bezels were intentionally made as narrow as possible so that even the tightest panels have room for two or even three displays. The RV-8 panels on this page are examples of what you can accomplish in narrow tandem seat aircraft.

Light and Sporty

Light and Sporty

Looking for a simple, clean VFR panel for your sport aircraft? A single 10" SkyView SE Display can do everything you need, with all controls easily accessible on the front panel. The menu system is intuitive and logical to use. The left and right joystick knobs make it fast and easy to make adjustments and navigate the map. Opt for SkyView HDX and it's even easier to use.

A simple VFR aircraft can be fully-equipped, including ADS-B Out capability with just one SkyView SE display, a COM and Intercom in the panel. Other modules are mounted remotely.
Add a second SkyView display for more screen real estate. Dedicated knob and/or autopilot control panels offer direct control of frequently used SkyView features.

Weekend Warrior

Weekend Warrior

Just because you're in a sporty tandem aircraft doesn't mean you can't also have the capability to fly through weather. A configuration like this, with dual displays, redundant ADAHRS, battery backup, and an IFR navigator equips you for legal, safe IFR flight.

SkyViews displays and modules were designed with narrow bezels that hug the display. This lets us offer form factors that make equipping even the tightest panels possible.
Believe it or not, you can actually fit two SkyView 10" displays in an RV-8.

Cross-Country Cruiser

Cross-Country Cruiser

Want a cross-country panel with more features for long distance travel? A second display makes navigating easier and is also a great backup. Add a control panel with dedicated knobs for Altitude, Barometer, and Heading/Track so they are always there for quick adjustments. The autopilot control panel adds immediate control of all autopilot modes.

The Airliner

The Airliner

We admit, it's a lot of panel. But it's possible and extremely capable. SkyView's architecture supports configurations that span from a single display all the way up through what is shown here. In fact, the Sportsman that several Dynon pilots co-own has this same three-screen configuration. Please ask one of us about it!

With three displays, you're actually equipped better than many airliners. We like to fly with the PFD and Map on the pilot's SkyView HDX display, with the engine instruments on the 7" HDX.
If you often fly with a co-pilot, SkyView supports dual autopilot and knob control panels for both you and your right-seater.
