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
You 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
ForeFlight'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
Stratus 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
With 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
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. 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
Stratus 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
With 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
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.
Works with Apple watch
With 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.
