coppercity Posted January 22, 2014 Report Share Posted January 22, 2014 Attention: Flight Design CTLS SkyView Owners: Dynon has done a great job expanding the capabilities of the SkyView system. With that expansion comes updating of the software and more importantly, firmware updates. In use on experimental aircraft an owner can choose and use any firmware change they want, not so on Special Light Sport Aircraft like the CTLS and CTLSi. Firmware updates from Dynon usually change the configuration and function of the primary displays to make them more flexible and user friendly, however those changes may not always be compatible with the LSA regulations. Any new firmware loaded onto a CTLS or CTLSi that is operated as a SLSA , must be tested and be under control of Flight Design. Flight Design specific Skyveiw firmware for the CTLS (i) must only be loaded from our website and not directly from Dynon. In the next few days Flight Design will release a tested and approved version 6.2. This has most of the same functionality as Dynon's 7.0 version and has the proper testing and certification. Flight Design will then provide all the necessary documentation and supplements to your POH to maintain your regulatory compliance. You should still utilize Dynon's free map, obstacle, and aviation data base updates from their site. This restriction only applies to the firmware. We will send out a notification to all registered owners when version 6.2 is available on our web page for downloading."
