Made for ForeFlight

Stratus™ is the simple-to-use, pocket-sized, wireless receiver that transforms your iPad into the ultimate flight tool. Get subscription-free weather, GPS information, ADS-B traffic and backup attitude – all integrated with ForeFlight Mobile. The new Stratus 2S offers additional features and even better performance, but with the same pilot-friendly design that has made Stratus the best-selling ADS-B receiver in aviation.

Subscription-free in-flight weather

In-flight weatherYou can view in-flight weather on your iPad, including NEXRAD radar, METARs, TAFs, TFRs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, NOTAMs and more. It's updated every 5-10 minutes and there are no subscription fees – ever. Stratus Replay allows you to turn off the iPad screen in flight and save battery; when you turn the screen on again, Stratus will automatically send all the weather information you missed. Also includes animated radar, so you can monitor trends in a storm. Just tap the play button.

Stunning synthetic vision display

Synthetic visionForeFlight's new Synthetic Vision feature rewrites the book on situational awareness. With luminous terrain, night sky view, hands-free declutter, and a brilliant obstacle awareness system, ForeFlight with Synthetic Vision will forever change the way you fly. With Stratus 2S, ForeFlight's synthetic vision really comes alive. The built-in AHRS drives a super responsive pitch and bank instrument in the center of the Synthetic Vision view. In an emergency situation, you’ve got a backup glass cockpit on your iPad.

Dual band ADS-B traffic

TrafficStratus 2S includes a dual band (978 MHz and 1090 MHz) ADS-B receiver so it can display traffic information right on the ForeFlight Maps page. See relative altitude, climb/descent rate and projected track. Picks up all aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out as well as some aircraft equipped with Mode C transponders. Note: ADS-B traffic is limited unless your aircraft has ADS-B Out installed in the panel.

WAAS GPS unlocks track up and terrain

TerrainWith the built-in WAAS GPS receiver, Stratus allows you to view moving maps, track up displays and high resolution terrain maps in ForeFlight. The smart GPS locks on fast and typically provides 1 meter accuracy. Replaces the need for a separate GPS receiver--Stratus has it all!

Built-in AHRS for backup attitude

Built-in AHRSStratus 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. Now you can view a backup attitude indicator, GPS groundspeed and altitude on your iPad--in a beautiful split screen mode right in ForeFlight. (Not to be used for primary reference.)

Automatic flight data recorder

Flight data recorderStratus is the first ADS-B receiver to offer a complete flight data recorder system. When this is enabled, Stratus automatically records your flight--complete with GPS position, altitude speed and attitude. Flight logs are saved in ForeFlight, and can be viewed online, in Google Earth or in the CloudAhoy app. Ideal for proficiency flights and CFIs.

Pressure altitude sensor

AltitudeWith its built-in barometric pressure sensor, Stratus 2S allows ForeFlight to display both pressure altitude and GPS altitude. Plus, ForeFlight’s automatic Cabin Pressure Advisor alerts you when you might need oxygen by flashing a message anytime cabin altitude exceeds 12,000 or 25,000 ft.

The Stratus Platform

Seamless integration with ForeFlight mobile

ForeFlight integrationStratus 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.

Works with Apple watch

Apple WatchWith a Stratus on board and connected to iPhone, ADS-B weather is delivered right to ForeFlight for Apple Watch. Easily view current METARs for airports in your recents and favorites lists. A customizable dashboard of flight instruments is also available, which helps you keep track of information like ETE, ETA, distance to destination, track, ground speed, GPS altitude, and more.

Designed to work with the Stratus ESG transponder

ADS-B outGet a complete traffic picture when you add Stratus ESG - the only ADS-B Out transponder made specifically for Stratus. This all-in-one solution, which includes a built-in WAAS GPS, meets the 2020 FAA mandate, and offers improved reception and full-time power for your Stratus portable. Certification planned for early 2016.

The Stratus 2B came and was what I expected. However, there was nothing included about the Foreflight Pro Plus I had also purchased. I was unable to sign in to ForeFlight until I contacted ForeFlight directly and sent them a copy of my invoice from Sporty's. Sporty's should do a better job of this.

Does this put mode c 3 code in?
J M on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does not. This is an "IN" receiver only.
Is Stratus 2S a totally wireless device if coupled to the ForeFlight Pro Plus app? Also is there a altitude that ForeFlight with or without Stratus 2S ceases to populate information onto an iPad mini 4? Lastly, if the airplane is equipped with USB recharging plugs ins, can both Stratus 2S and iPad mini 4 devices be charging and functioning during flights.
A shopper on Mar 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Stratus is completely wireless when coupled to Foreflight. The Stratus works well at all flight levels. If the aircraft is equipped with USB Chargers you will be able to charge and function at the same time.
Hi - please tell me if this Stratus 2S ABS-B unit meets all FAA requirements for the 2018 install rule. If so, what is required for the installation? Does a certified radio shop need to do the installation in a certified production LSA aircraft?
Thank you,
A shopper on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Stratus 2S is an ADS-B In unit. It is a portable device and does not need to be installed bye a radio shop.
Does work on ipad without cellular data?
Mike T on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does.
What is the difference between dual band and single band ADS-B?
zach g on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dual band traffic will show more airplanes. It's still not a complete picture - that's only available if you have an ADS-B Out transponder in your panel - but you'll see more airplanes. It does not affect weather at all.
