UAvionix announced July 5 that it had received a technical standard order from the FAA for its tailBeacon ADS-B Out solution. The tailBeacon is an alternative to the skyBeacon that is installed in place of the position light on the trailing edge of the vertical stabilizer. Much like its wingtip-mounted counterpart, the tailBeacon is designed to be installable within one hour. The tailBeacon package includes ADS-B Out, GPS, a barometric altitude sensor, and the position light.
