    I'd like to report that we had a very positive experience with Airtronics obtaining our ADS-B equipment and installation. From ordering our equipment, to setting the appointment for installation, the Airtonics team was professional, timely and thorough in their response to our questions about the equipment we were purchasing.

    Providing the option to install at our hangar, was especially valuable. For our installer it was a 300 mile RT. The installer was on time, courteous and very knowledgeable. The installation locations for the receiver, transponder and antennas have proven to be ideal for both functionality and aesthetics. The process went very quickly, and our “pass’ for the FAA rebate test flight proved that the equipment installed was in excellent working order. The system worked the first time with no glitches and the interface with Foreflight was perfect. Additionally, the instructions for the rebate test flight that they provided were invaluable to an easy “pass”.

    We could not be happier with the service we received or be more confident in the quality of the installation. On a scale of 1 to 10, this one went to 11.

    Is that an installed picture of the antenna? If so why is it cocked 45 degrees to the centerline of the airplane? I like the F-18 escort squawk.

    Since she tends to need a little left rudder in cruise we turned it so we don't have to re-rig it. ;)

    Actually I took that shot right after he installed it. The panel is off the plane and laying upside down on the wing. It was easier and less painful than bending down. That's why it looks off-center.

    Makes sense, my next question would be the odd diagonal paint job. :)
    Beautiful plane by the way.

    Just for pure nosiness, what was the actual cost of the INSTALLATION, the labor itself to install less the cost of the unit(s) themselves?
