FreeFlight Systems Introduces XPLORER

Weather Receiver Will Be Upgradable For ADS-B Compliance

FreeFlight Systems is introducing the XPLORER weather receiver, which will give pilots access to free datalink weather today and has a built-in upgrade path to fully compliant ADS-B capabilities to meet the 2019 mandatory equipage deadline.

Based on FreeFlight Systems’ proven and highly regarded RANGR family of 978MHz UAT ADS-B systems, XPLORER receives the full ADS-B Flight Information Service Broadcast (FIS-B) that includes graphical weather. XPLORER connects wirelessly to any suitable display including the iPad running FreeFlight Systems’ free app. Additional XPLORER-compatible apps for iPad and other portable devices will be available soon.
 
The FreeFlight Systems XPLORER solution delivers superior price-performance compared to other low-cost receivers. The XPLORER system is permanently installed with no cockpit or wire clutter. It also includes an externally mounted ADSB antenna for unimpeded reception of broadcast data. The XPLORER solution is designed to be integrated with a certified ADS-B Out transmitter as required in advance of the December 2019 equipage deadline. With a certified transmitter installed, the XPLORER system also becomes a full-featured, ADS-B traffic receiver displaying complete and accurate traffic data. It is important to note that other low-cost receivers operating without a certified ADS-B Out transmitter permit the display of incomplete and therefore potentially hazardous traffic information.

“Like our trusted RANGR product line, our XPLORER not only meets the high performance and safety standards that pilots expect, it is designed from the start to be part of a fully compliant and affordable ADS-B solution,” said Tim Taylor, CEO of FreeFlight Systems. “This means that aircraft owners and operators can receive the benefits of ADS-B weather now knowing that their investment in avionics is sensible, protected and counts 100 percent toward meeting that looming deadline.”

XPLORER is priced at $585 and is available at Oshkosh for August delivery.
