  1. Jpcbank In the USA, the CRUZ is the "type" of aircraft that corresponds with a "SportCruiser" and a "PiperSport". when Air traffic Control (ATC) asks for our aircraft type over the radio, we respond Charlie Romeo Uniform Zulu - CRUZ We don't have any PS-28 aircraft in the USA, but they would also be "CRUZ" type LSA's, just the name PS-28 Is used for the "same" LSA line of CSA aircraft sold in Europe. I use the terms CRUZ, SportCruiser, PiperSport, and PS-28 all to refer to the same line of very nice Light Sport Aircraft built by CZAW (the earlier "Legacy" SportCruisers) or currently CSA Czech Sport Aircraft for the PiperSport and latest production SportCruiser LSA's.

  3. Some additional details and "Before/After" wiring diagrams for interfacing the portable Garmin GDL-39 3D ADS-B IN Traffic and Weather receiver to a Garmin 696 GPS Map display with the 696 remaining in communication with other existing CRUZ S-LSA Avionics (and wiring): Garmin SL30 Nav/Com radio, Dynon HS-34 Expansion Module and Dynon AP-74 Autopilot (via the Dynon DSAB Smart Avionics Bus) using the GDL-39 "Serial Data Pass Thru" feature. See pics below. Note that currently, in the USA FAA regulated airspace, an S-LSA CRUZ aircraft owner can not "hard wire" a GDL-39 ADS-B IN receiver into the CRUZ S-LSA avionics without a tail number specific Letter of Authorization from CSA, the airplane manufacturer. For a USA Experimental E-LSA, the GDL-39 modification can be performed directly, with no CSA LOA required. The Garmin GDL-39 family of ADS-B IN Traffic and Weather receivers provides AWESOME USA FAA Traffic and Weather data products sent up by the FAA Ground Radio Towers to all aircraft, a complete local traffic picture to "participating" ADS-B OUT Equipped aircraft, and the benefits of a Dual Band (978 MHz and 1090 Mhz) Traffic receiver.
