Dynon’s SkyView HDX glass cockpit is now approved by the US authority, the FAA, for the Beechcraft Baron B58 and 58A models.
Dynon’s autopilot has also been approved for the Baron. It’s a full-featured three-axis autopilot system that is approach capable when paired with a compatible third-party IFR navigation device.
The SkyView HDX is one of Dynon’s avionics products for certified aircraft available for an impressive number of single engine aircraft types on the Approved Model List. However, the Baron is only the second twin engine aircraft on the AML – the other is the Piper Seneca.
When added to a SkyView HDX system, pricing for a three-axis autopilot starts at a list price of $11,192 for Baron aircraft, including all required brackets, hardware, and servo harnesses.
Frequently chosen options include the SkyView Autopilot Control Panel ($664), which provides dedicated autopilot controls for the pilot, and the Knob Control Panel ($335), which has dedicated knobs to adjust the values that pilots modify the most when they fly under Autopilot (altitude, heading/track, and altimeter setting).
