Safety in Numbers
For over 10 years, pilots have trusted SkyWatch® Collision Avoidance Systems to help them fly safely. SkyWatch was the first active collision avoidance system certified for General Aviation (GA). More than 10,000 systems are installed in aircraft ranging from single engine airplanes to helicopters to luxury business jets. SkyWatch is so trusted, it is the preferred choice of top aircraft manufacturers worldwide. With an unmatched warranty and years of collision avoidance development, SkyWatch is the original “No Compromise” collision avoidance system.
SkyWatch Series Key Features
- Self-calibrating antenna constantly maintains the bearing accuracy of tracked targets and offers the most precise traffic positioning information
- Verbal Intruder Positioning (VIP) announces range, bearing and relative altitude of intruder aircraft through the cockpit’s audio system
- Unmatched 5-Year Warranty
- “Look Up/Look Down” altitude display modes highlight specific layers of relative altitude range — useful during climbs, descents and takeoff
- Optional bottom mount antenna installation, useful for helicopter applications
- Integrates with Stormscope Lightning Detection Systems
Powerful and Built to Outperform
Designed to be powerful yet easy on the budget, SkyWatch is the ideal traffic advisory system for general aviation, fixed wing and helicopter applications. SkyWatch monitors the airspace around an aircraft and indicates where to look for nearby transponder-equipped aircraft that may pose a collision threat — providing the “big picture” in traffic awareness at a fraction of the cost of TCAS. After receiving replies to its Mode C type interrogations, the SkyWatch system computes the responding aircraft’s range, bearing, relative altitude and closure rate — predicting potential traffic conflicts within an eleven mile range. Aural traffic alerts are annunciated through the aircraft’s existing audio system, and visual targets are displayed using TCAS-like symbols.
Exclusive 5-Year Warranty
L-3 is proud to offer a ** 5-YEAR WARRANTY ** on all SkyWatch systems! Why settle for a couple of years when you can fly with peace of mind at a set cost of $0 to maintain the SkyWatch for 5 years? How do we do it? Our years of experience in building robust and dependable avionics have enabled us to offer this exclusive warranty when others offer less than half the coverage. With over 10,000 systems delivered in the past 10 years, Skywatch is the original "No Compromise" Collision Avoidance System. SkyWatch components such as cooling fans, antennas and circuit boards are built to a higher standard, enabling us to stand behind our product long after the competition has expired. And to provide the best possible experience for our customers, L-3 has expanded our loaner and exchange pool to provide NEXT BUSINESS DAY loaners and exchanges to support the SkyWatch and SkyWatch HP products. We are also working toward significantly reducing turn-times for repair of SkyWatch products. When a repair (warranty or non-warranty) does not meet your customer’s needs, ask for a next day loaner or exchange!
Whether you are a commercial pilot flying an all glass cockpit or a General Aviation pilot with a traditional panel, SkyWatch makes a model to suit your needs. Whether viewing on a dedicated display or overlaying the information on a moving map, SkyWatch offers the most display options of any collision avoidance system. SkyWatch is certified and flying with almost every display manufacturer.
