  • The installation requires 2 screws and reuses the existing power and ground to your current position light.

In-flight Safety Simplified
Keep it simple. Add ADS-B OUT to your certified or experimental aircraft by upgrading your rear position light to tailBeacon and meet the FAA’s 2020 mandate.

Works with Your Existing Mode C or S Transponder
tailBeacon works with any existing transponder. uAvionix’s patented power transcoder technology seamlessly communicates with your existing transponder, any transponder, over your aircraft’s electrical system. tailBeacon and skyBeacon are the only UAT ADS-B OUT devices on the market that work with Mode S transponders.

Remain Anonymous
Just because you are ADS-B equipped, doesn’t mean you want to be tracked. With tailBeacon’s Anonymous Mode, your aircraft identification remains hidden from the ADS-B OUT signal while squawking 1200. Anonymous Mode keeps the skies safe while protecting your privacy.

Self-Contained WAAS GPS
tailBeacon contains its own TSO Certified uAvionix truFYX WAAS GPS. You have no additional GPS to purchase or integrate with!

Watch Your Six
There’s more to tailBeacon than just ADS-B compliance. By replacing your existing rear position light with tailBeacon, you’re getting a 2x brighter LED nav light with a fraction of the power consumption. With tailBeacon’s 20,000 hour rated LEDs, you can fly with confidence knowing your rear’s covered.

Mounts with a Turn
The new tailBeacon is the easiest, most affordable installation on the market. Simply remove your existing position light, install the mounting bracket, connect to existing power wires, slide in tailBeacon, and turn to lock in place. It’s that easy!

Instant Setup and Configuration
Mechanically installing tailBeacon is the first easy step. With uAvionix’s mobile app, configuration is just as simple. Our mobile application (available for both Apple iOS and Android) guides your installer through setting the necessary values including the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets.
