Avidyne Announces TAS Winner And New Giveaway
Avidyne this week chose its first Extravaganza Prize winner -- who won after clicking on the contest link in AVwebFlash -- and announced the start of a new giveaway. Bob Edmondson, of Brookshire, Texas, won a TAS620A dual-antenna active-surveillance traffic advisory system, valued at almost $21,000. The new gear will be installed in Edmondson's 1960 Beech BE35-33 Debonair. The company announced the giveaway at Sun 'n Fun in April, and collected about 1,000 entries. Edmondson's name was selected at random. The new giveaway offers an IFD540 FMS/GPS/NAV/COM, valued at $17,000.
The winner will be chosen in a random drawing on Jan. 3. Entrants must be an aircraft owner to win the prize. The IFD540 unit is expected to be certified in the second half of next year. The winner can choose to wait for it, or may select another Avidyne product of equal or lesser value at an earlier date, the company said. An entry form is available online at the Avidyne web site.
