Whether you fly with TIS, TAS or TCAS, traffic-alerting technologies use similar symbology, displaying targets based on relative bearing, distance and altitude.
Avidyne TAS
Avidyne TAS
TAS products for GA aircraft sell for between $8,500 and $22,000. Avidyne’s technology uses antennas that mount to the top and bottom of the fuselage.
