In each issue of Plane & Pilot magazine, we share a handful of gear for pilots that we feel pilots and aviation enthusiasts would love to have.
The round-up in our January/February 2020 issue includes an ADS-B Receiver, a flashlight from Smith & Wesson, a GoPro camera, and more. Click through the gallery below to view all of the items.
Scout ADS-B Receiver
For pilots looking to enjoy the perks of ADS-B In weather without the downside of heavy installation costs, the Scout ADS-B receiver is a low-cost alternative. This compact, 4-inch dual-band receiver provides ForeFlight users with all the benefits of free ADS-B weather—radar, METARs, PIREPs, you name it—delivered to their device via a built-in wifi connection. This connection allows the Scout to provide weather to multiple devices in one cockpit. It doesn't provide GPS and thus requires GPS in the connecting device or through an external source.
The Scout is powered through a USB charger and can be attached to a window easily using the provided suction cup. The device, which is available for $199, requires no assembly and is fully ready to go out of the box.Learn more at sportys.com.
