uAvionix has signed a distribution agreement with UK-based based LX Avionics for distribution of SkyEcho.
As a stocking distributor, LX Avionics will serve as the primary purchase and support channel for the SkyEcho product line in the European market as well as in the United Kingdom.
uAvionix claims the SkyEcho, which is a CAA CAP1391 approved Electronic Conspicuity device, is the world’s first portable ADS-B IN and OUT solution for UK Visual Flight Rules (VFR) aircraft.
It can be configured as an ADS-B OUT solution in the UK, or as an ADS-B IN and FLARM receiver only for use elsewhere in the European Union (EU).
ADS-B IN functionality works with any GDL-90 compatible Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), and FLARM functionality is compatible with ForeFlight Europe, SkyDemon, EasyVFR4, and Airmate EFBs.
Discussing the new partnership, Christian Ramsey, president, said: “Our new relationship with LX Avionics is customer focused. Until now, UK and EU customers have had to be patient in dealing with our U.S. based distribution and support team.”
Adding: “LX Avionics is already a trusted entity in the UK, and as a stocking distributor, overseas shipping costs and delayed communications will be a thing of the past. LX Avionics are delighted to have been appointed as EU and UK distributor for the SkyEcho. uAvionix are at the cutting edge of EC and collision avoidance technology, for light and general aviation. We are extremely excited to be in partnership with this exciting, forward thinking company.”
Beginning immediately, SkyEcho orders on the uAvionix website and otherwise will be processed directly through LX Avionics.
