Trig – bringing the smartest and best value avionics to Oshkosh

July 2, 2013

Oshkosh visitors can discover the significant benefits of choosing Trig products by meeting the Trig team on Booth 3132 in Hangar C.

Tough economic conditions have made pilots careful about spending money. The good news from Trig is that their range of certified products are smart, affordable and future proof – perfect for Oshkosh airplane owners.

Jon Roper, Marketing Manager at Trig said, “Oshkosh attracts many vintage types, where a Mode C transponder failure could be in an old KT76A unit. We have a plug and play replacement for a KT76 called the Trig TT31. This is a Mode S transponder that can also provide you with a compliant ‘mandate ready’ ADS-B Out solution, we believe this is a very sensible way of future proofing.”

The hardware required for a TT31 ADS-B Out solution includes a Trig tray, a compliant WAAS GPS and some form of automatic air / ground switching. The FAA requires a STC for any compliant ADS-B Out, fitted in a certified airplane. For homebuilders and experimental types a STC is not required.

Trig want to make installing a compliant ADS-B solution as simple as possible, our dedicated ADS-B, STC program covers a growing number of airplane and GPS types. Trig expects to add an STC for Garmin WAAS GPS units soon and a FAA Field Approval process is already available for those wishing to add their own aircraft types. Trig plan to provide instructions and guidance for uncertified pilots who want to fit a compliant ADS-B Out solution.

Trig’s compact TT22 transponder is the world’s smallest Mode S and ADS-B capable device, ideal for aircraft owners where space and weight are at a premium. A separate control head and hardware unit allow installation virtually anywhere in the panel. With a depth of just over 2” the TT22 transponder is the ultimate space saver, delivering Mode S and a 1090ES ADS-B Out capability that is 2020 mandate ready. Finally, Trig’s TY91 and TY92 comm radios are highly capable 25 kHz / 8.33 kHz VHF units that complement the compact transponder range. Both radios feature; a two place intercom, dual watch capability, nine channel memories. The TY91 and TY92 radios also have installation options for the remote control of primary operating functions.

Jon Roper added, “Many pilots are discovering the benefits that Trig provides, via our Approved Trig Dealer network and supported by our U.S. Trig Service Center. We are really looking forward to meeting and talking to aircraft owners at Oshkosh in just a few weeks time.”
