Appareo announced today that its Stratus ESG transponder has received Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Stratus ESG is a panel-mounted 1090 ES transponder that helps aircraft owners meet the 2020 mandate by providing ADS-B Out and built-in WAAS GPS all in one box. With a GPS antenna included in the $2,995 MSRP, Stratus ESG is the industry’s most affordable panel-mounted 1090 ES transponder for 2020 compliance.

Along with the news of TSO certification, the company is pleased to announce that the transponder is now available with two kit options — Stratus ESG and Stratus ESGi. The Stratus ESGi kit includes the certified transponder and a non-certified ADS-B In receiver that was designed to work only with Stratus ESG. When connected to Stratus ESG, the Stratus 2i receiver provides the same industry leading ADS-B and AHRS experience on ForeFlight Mobile as pilots have come to expect from the Stratus product family.

“We’re excited to be offering a new kit option to include both ADS-B In and Out,” said Kris Garberg, Director of Sales at Appareo. “This kit will enable a lot of non-glass panel aircraft owners to enjoy the benefits of ADS-B In while complying with the 2020 mandate for ADS-B Out — affordably.”

“Many aircraft owners aren’t familiar with Appareo or aware that we have more than a decade of experience working on FAA-certified products. However, many of them are familiar with the Stratus product line and the work we’ve done to bring affordable ADS-B In technology to the market,” said David Batcheller, President and COO.

“Our goal with Stratus ESG was to have the best value ADS-B Out avionic to complement our industry-leading ADS-B In technology. We made a tremendous commitment to design, engineer and manufacture it here in the United States. This allows us to deliver the high standard of quality that people have come to expect with Stratus products,” Batcheller added.

Appareo has a network of nearly 280 authorized dealers who are actively selling Stratus products and scheduling installations.
