SilverLight Aviation has been offering MGL Avionics EFIS and engine monitoring along with MGL V6 radio for some time. However, starting in 2020 MGL Avionics has started to have supply chain issues which they blame on Covid related delays which cause us delays. At this point, we have decided to switch over to Dynon Avionics for our current and future orders as we cannot get MGL Avionics and there is no solid timeline promised when they will have enough supply for orders placed even 2 to 3 months ago.
Dynon is a US manufactured product and though it costs more, it's also more solid and reliable. We will be contacting our current customers to let them know of the change. I wish MGL well but there is no way to halt assembly and keep waiting on avionics.
The good news is that Dynon being from the US will be able to provide better support to our US customers.

Wise move. Glad there are other good quality options.
