In our Avionics section we cover the Best ADS-B Receivers and Best Aviation Handheld Radios, as well as helpful articles to improve your communication skills, and answer some frequently asked questions pilots have about aviation equipment.
Avionics includes equipment for communications, navigation, monitoring, aircraft flight-control systems, fuel systems, collision-avoidance systems, flight recorders, weather systems, and aircraft management systems. Any pilot knows just how invaluable these pieces of equipment can be while flying – very often being the difference between safety and catastrophe.
If a pilot doesn’t have a handheld radio, for example, how will he be able to communicate with ATC in case of an emergency? ADS-B receivers are invaluable in displaying GPS position, subscription-free weather, ADS-B traffic and backup attitude information. This can make your flight much more straightforward. The value of fuel systems and aircraft management systems is clear.
