I want to ask the community here if anyone has a guide to ADS-B out compliance for the Cirrus Aircraft. I have a G1 Cirrus with Avidyne MFD and Sandel HSI. There are two Garmin 430 Non WAAS and Garmin GTX327 transponder.
I have heard several stories from avionics shops that people are installing a lot of kits that are not certified. Most of the concerns with avionics on a Cirrus is because the aircraft fuselage is composite and not metal and therefore does not form a ‘Faraday Cage’ to protect the avionics from lightning or HIRF. I’m not really interested in turning the post into a side discussion about HIRF, which I thoroughly understand (I’m an aircraft engineer). What I don’t know very well is what kind of STC kits are available that are safe, approved, and comply with the ADS-B out requirements.
Simply put I’m looking to see what equipment I will need and what choices there are for us on the market now.
Thanks, and happy flying!
