More ADS-B From Sporty’s


As yet more portable ADS-B products hit the market, Sporty’s Pilot Shop is out today with a second generation of its hot-selling Stratus. The new device is being produced in a partnership between Sporty’s, ForeFlight and Appareo, which developed the hardware.

Like the Clarity, it will feature dual-band traffic and an AHRS to be displayed on a separate app called Stratus Horizon. The second-generation Stratus — which is out almost a year to the day after the first model appeared — will sell for $899 and will be available in late April. It features battery life of up eight hours and has external jacks for GPS and ADS-B antennas.
