The Appareo dealer network was first informed about the five-year warranty last month at the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) annual convention.
The five-year warranty is offered for all certified transponders purchased in 2018, according to company representatives. Officials add that the company is also extending the five-year warranty to all previously-registered installations of certified Stratus transponders.
“Appareo has built a reputation for providing low-cost, easy-to-use avionics, and the Stratus product line has made us synonymous with ADS-B,” said Kris Garberg, president of Appareo Aviation. “However, we’re excited to announce that a line of non-ADS-B avionics are currently under development. Details will be available closer to product release, the first of which is scheduled for later this year.”
