FlightBox ADS-B Receiver

ADS-B For Everyone

If you’re a pilot, chances are good that you’ve heard about ADS-B. You probably know that an ADS-B receiver can make flying safer and more efficient by providing real-time weather, traffic, TFRs, and other flight data to your Apple or Android tablet. You probably also know that most of the ADS-B receivers on the market are quite expensive. FlightBox is different.

FlightBox is an ADS-B receiver based on the popular Stratux open source project. FlightBox is built from off-the-shelf hardware and free software, making it much less expensive than proprietary ADS-B receivers. FlightBox is shipped fully assembled; just power it up and fly.

FlightBox supports all of the most popular aviation apps, including:

  • ForeFlight* (iOS)
  • WingX Pro (iOS)
  • FltPlan Go (iOS, Android)
  • FlyQ EFB (iOS, Android)
  • DroidEFB (Android)
  • Aerovie Reports (iOS)
  • iFlyGPS (iOS, Android)
  • AvPlan EFB
  • Xavion (iOS)
  • Avare (Android)
  • Naviator (Android)
  • AvNav (Android)
  • iFlightPlanner (iOS)
  • OzRunways (iOS, Android)

* Please note that Open Flight Solutions is not affiliated with or endorsed by ForeFlight. Interoperability has been independently confirmed by third party users of the software. 

Subscription-Free In-Flight Weather
FlightBox receives continuous, free weather updates from ADS-B ground stations. In-flight weather gives you a huge edge in aeronautical decision making by providing you with a near real-time view of conditions in your area and across the nation.

Current weather products include:

  • NEXRAD radar
  • METARs
  • TAFs
  • Winds / Temps Aloft
  • PIREPs

Additionally, ADS-B’s FIS-B service also gives you:

  • TFRs
  • NOTAMs
  • SUA (Special Use Airspace) activity
  • Future enhancements to the ADS-B weather system are expected to add lightning, turbulence, icing, cloud tops, and AWOS.

ADS-B Traffic
FlightBox is a dual-band (UAT and 1090-ES) system, which means it can receive traffic information from all available ADS-B traffic sources including FAA ground towers (TIS-B and ADS-R) and aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out.

While many modern tablets and smartphones include GPS capabilities, some lack the precision of a separate WAAS-capable GPS receiver and significantly increase the drain on your battery. For those with wifi-only iPads or other tablets with limited GPS capabilities, FlightBox includes a WAAS GPS with a 10 Hz update rate (either internal or externally mounted). This provides your app with a highly accurate position – typically between 10 and 30 feet. It also provides GPS altitude, ground speed, and ground track data.

Built To Last
Most electronics spend their lives in comfort. Portable ADS-B receivers don’t. They live on a glare shield that gets up to 160°F – on a cool day. That’s why we build FlightBox to withstand temperatures that would melt most enclosures into slag. The case is made from Boltaron – a space age plastic that’s engineered to withstand years of heat, UV, vibration and just about any other abuse you and your airplane can dish out.

Each FlightBox ADS-B Receiver includes:

  • FlightBox dual band (UAT and 1090-ES) ADS-B receiver
  • High-gain UAT and 1090-ES antennas
  • Internal or External WAAS GPS Receiver
  • 3 foot USB power cable
  • 12v/24v USB power adapter
  • Quick-start guide

The FlightBox package includes a power cable and a cigarette lighter adapter that works on 12v and 24v systems. However, it does not include any kind of internal battery. We offer an optional USB battery pack that's good for 5 - 6 hours of flight.

Optional Accessories:

Choose your model below:

  • Internal or External GPS:  You can choose an internal or remote external antenna.  If you choose the internal antenna, the Flightbox must have a clear view of the sky (i.e. set on your glareshield).  Renters usually prefer the internal GPS and owners generally prefer the remote GPS receiver.
  • AHRS? FlightBox Plus adds attitude (AHRS) and barometric altitude sensors which drive attitude, (pitch, roll, g-force, and slip/skid), PFD and synthetic vision features in many EFB applications.  Please note that only certain apps support AHRS (i.e. Aerovie, Droid EFB, FlyQ, iFLY GPS, Naviator, and WingX Pro).  Foreflight does NOT support the Flightbox AHRS.

Seems good for the money
by Robert from California 

Pros: Good info. easy to use
Cons: not dependable, quits at crucial times
Review: I like the product, except it disconnects GPS and ADSB intermittently, and I have to restart the Ipad to reconnect. IPAD does not do this with other Stratus units.

Very reliable and easy to set up
by Mark from Centerville IA USA

Review: Works well and very reliable. I've been having continuous connection problems with XGPS190 so bought another iPad with LTE and FlightBox to solve the problem. Very happy so far.

by Larry from Edmond OK USA 

Pros: Easy to set up and once set up it just works without any further action required.
Cons: Not any I can find.
Review: This product has met all expectations. I wanted to access weather on to my iPad and sync to FlyQ, which it did with no problems. Have used it on several long cross country flights and the reliability and functionality has not wavered. I bought the GPS antenna that goes with it and it all works well. I'll upgrade the panel to full ADS-B at some point but for now this is getting the job done.
