Stratus – Second Generation

The all-new second generation 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 more than eight hours of battery life, easy one-button operation and seamless integration with the industry leading ForeFlight Mobile application.

Second Generation Stratus Features:



Dual band ADS-B trafficDual-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 Mobile 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. Read more about how ForeFlight Mobile will display traffic.



Built-in AHRS Built-in AHRS for backup attitude
The new Stratus includes a complete Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) for supplemental attitude information in the cockpit. It aligns itself automatically, so you can just turn it on and fly. Download the free Stratus Horizon app from the Apple App Store and view a backup attitude indicator, GPS groundspeed and altitude on your iPhone or iPad. Note: AHRS data provided by Stratus should be used for supplemental purposes only. Stratus is not certified for IFR operations.



ForeFlight terrain

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.







WAAS GPS unlocks track up and terrain
8-hour battery lifeWith 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.






Built for ForeFlight

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 Mobile, 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.


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.

Stratus Horizon App
Add the new Stratus Horizon app for a complete backup solution. This free iOS app displays real-time attitude heading reference system (AHRS) data, including pitch, roll, groundspeed, GPS altitude and vertical speed. It’s the perfect complement to ForeFlight—display backup attitude on your iPhone while you view weather and traffic on your iPad.

WiFi connection allows multiple iPads and/or iPhones to connect to Stratus simultaneously. ADS-B coverage varies by location and altitude and does not work on the ground in most locations. Coverage is not available outside the United States.

Please view the ADS-B Coverage Map before purchasing Stratus.
