Currently, FlightView supports the Trig TT21 and TT22 Mode ES transponders. If you’re operating in the US, you want the TT22 – it meets all the requirements for the 2020 mandate.
Note that you’ll need a 2020-compliant position source – either Trig’s TN72 GPS or an approved IFR navigator with WAAS support like the Garmin GTN, GPS, and GNS units, or the Avidyne IFD line.
FlightView / FlightBox Pro NORSEE
For FightView and FlightBox Pro, you have two options: you can install a belly mount transponder-style antenna (either “stick-and-ball” or blade) or you can install a set of antennas in the cabin. The belly-mount option is cleaner, but more expensive and time-consuming. The cabin mount options is easier but has visible wires and sits in the window.
FlightBox/FlightBox Plus Portables
Portables installed in certified aircrat also have two options. You can connect the included high-gain rubber-duck antennas directly to the SMA jacks on the box, or you can use the in-cabin kit to remote mount the box and place the antennas in the window. If you are using a portable in an experimental aircraft, you can use the any of the three options: directly attached to the box, remotely mounted in the cabin, or belly mounted.
