    I think I read somewhere online that it is not officially TSO even though they exceed the requirement for it. And you are the first person that might seems to be suggesting otherwise. I was looking at their stuff for a while there and seems to be good products. Was actually considering buying it but couldn't find anyone that actually have used it to ask about it.

    I got a field approval for an iCom A210 two years ago, no one batted an eye.

    My conversations with friends at the FAA and with my own mechanic led me to believe that installing a non-TSO comm can be done as a minor alteration. I put in a GTR200 that way.

    do you know if this only applies to comm? would it be applied to something like g5s?

    The heresy was actually believing that TSO is required for part 91 aircraft. Val is as good and sometimes better than anything on the market.
