Weather. Traffic. Terrain. Backup Attitude.
The award-winning Stratus turns your iPad into the ultimate pilot tool, delivering subscription-free weather, ADS-B traffic, GPS position and attitude information – all from a wireless receiver that fits in your pocket. But more capability doesn’t mean you have to compromise. Stratus still features over 8 hours of battery life, easy one-button operation and costs 30% less than comparable ADS-B receivers. It simply works the right way.
Built-in AHRS for backup attitude
The new Stratus includes a complete Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) for backup attitude information in the cockpit. It aligns itself automatically, so you can just turn it on and fly. Download the free Stratus Horizon app and view a backup attitude indicator, GPS groundspeed and altitude on your iPhone or iPad. (Not to be used for primary reference.)
Dual band ADS-B traffic
Stratus includes a dual band (978 MHz and 1090 MHz) ADS-B receiver and displays traffic information right on the ForeFlight Maps page. See relative altitude, climb/descent rate and projected track. Note: ADS-B traffic is limited unless your aircraft has ADS-B Out installed in the panel.
Subscription-free in-flight weather
Just like the original Stratus, you can view in-flight weather on your iPad, including NEXRAD radar, METARs, TAFs, TFRs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, NOTAMs and more. And there are no subscription fees – ever. Now includes looping radar!
WAAS GPS unlocks track up and terrain
With the built-in WAAS GPS receiver, Stratus allows you to view moving maps, track up displays and high resolution terrain maps in ForeFlight Mobile. The smart GPS locks on fast and typically provides 1 meter accuracy.
8-hour battery means no wires
Even with all these features, Stratus remains totally wireless. With its 8-hour battery life, you can fly all day without bringing along a charging cable. Just turn on Stratus and go flying.
Built for ForeFlight
Stratus is the only ADS-B receiver that works with ForeFlight, aviation’s most popular app. That’s because Stratus was designed from the ground up to integrate with the app, so you can view complete status information right from the moving map page. Stratus simply works the right way.
30% Smaller, higher performance case
Even though the new Stratus has more capability, it features a smaller case size, better GPS performance and better ADS-B reception. It's also more heat-resistant, with a built-in fan.
Designed, tested and built in the USA
Stratus is built by pilots like you, so we know that quality is more than just a tagline. Stratus is engineered, tested and manufactured in the United States, ensuring you receive the best-made, most reliable ADS-B receiver on the market.
- WiFi connection allows multiple iPads and/or iPhones to connect to Stratus simultaneously.
- ADS-B coverage varies by location and altitude – does not work on the ground in most locations. Coverage not available outside US.
- Comes with charging cable and 110V wall plug; charging cable works with all 2.1 amp cigarette lighter plugs (sold separately) as well.
- Also includes dash mount, carrying bag and pilot's guide.
Stratus 1 vs. Stratus 2
The first and second generation Stratus receivers share a lot in common: both receive subscription-free ADS-B weather, both include a WAAS GPS, both are totally wireless, both feature an 8-hour battery life and both work with ForeFlight Mobile. Stratus 2 adds dual band ADS-B traffic (Stratus 1 is single band, so not as complete a traffic picture) and a built-in AHRS for backup attitude information. Stratus 2 is also 30% smaller, with improved GPS performance and better heat resistance. Stratus 1 is $599 and Stratus 2 is $899
