Avidyne and WSI have struck a deal under which Avidyne will develop and produce WSI’s new AV300 and AV350 satellite weather data and audio receivers. The AV300 will receive WSI InFlight weather services delivered by Sirius Satellite Radio, while the AV350 will receive WSI InFlight data and Sirius audio programming. The systems will be compatible with a wide range of multifunction displays, the companies said, and will be eligible for discounts by customers trading in old receivers. WSI named Sirius its exclusive satellite partner last year in a deal that provides an alternative to the XM satellite weather service chosen by a number of avionics makers.
