FreeFlight Systems has launched the “Wrangle A RANGR” promotion for U.S.-registered aircraft owners, offering a grand prize of RANGR FDL-978-XVR ADS-B Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) at no charge, a $3,000 installation credit, and an iPad Mini. The drawing also includes a second prize of a $399 iPad Mini or a third prize of a $249 Pebble Steele watch.

Aircraft owners can view promotion details and enter to participate in the drawing to be held on Aug. 1 at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., at Participants do not have to be present at the drawing to win.

Approved for installation in most general aviation aircraft, the RANGR FDL-978-XVR provides full ADS-B Out rule compliance using existing Mode A/C or Mode S transponders. The system also receives ADS-B In FIS-B graphical weather, TIS-B traffic and other data for display on Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) supporting the industry-standard Capstone Protocol.

Traffic data can be shown on Garmin GNS 400/500 series units and any display that complies with the ARINC 735B standard for Cockpit Display of Traffic Information (CDTI).

The WiFi module also supports weather and traffic display on an Apple iPad.

“Our “Wrangle A RANGR” promotion adds a fun, exciting and rewarding approach to equipping your aircraft for ADS-B,” said Tim Taylor, president and CEO of FreeFlight Systems. “It’s a great way for U.S. aircraft owners to learn more about their equipage options and maybe even take a giant step toward getting all of the benefits of NextGen as soon as possible.”

Founded in 2001 and based in Texas, FreeFlight Systems pioneered the first certified aviation WAAS GPS receiver and the first rule-compliant UAT ADS-B system.
