OREM, Utah, March 19, 2022 - Approach Systems Corporation (www.approach-systems.com), a manufacturer of aviation electronics products, announces availability of the Approach Sport Lite Hub System. The Approach Sport Lite Hub System replaces the hand-wired "rat's nest" behind the instrument panel with a hub and cable system making avionic installs and upgrades fast, cost-effective and safe.

The Approach Sport Lite Hub System is a low cost, modular, plug and play system for avionics interconnection for certified aircraft, kit planes, aerobatic aircraft, sport pilot eligible airplanes or anyone requiring installation of a GPS/COM and intercom in a basic instrument panel configuration. Simply install the Approach hub, select the appropriate Approach cables, and plug it in and your done. Contact Approach for more information on the Sport Hub and Pro Hub for VFR and IFR panel systems.

The Approach Sport Lite Hub System virtually eliminates hand wiring reducing install and upgrade times. In addition, the Approach Sport Lite Hub System will decrease the downtime of aircraft and make future maintainability and avionic upgrading economical and fast. The Approach system centralizes grounding and with the utilization of uniform cable shielding reduces electronic noise and other associated problems of hand wiring increasing reliability and lifetime performance of avionics. Approach hubs are not "active" components and Approach cables comply with FAA AC43-13B.

"Approach has set out to modernize the instrument panel and the avionic installation and upgrade process," said Kieth Sorenson, Approach's President. "If you are building a kit plane, you or you're A&P can perform the installation with the Sport Lite Hub System with the assurance that your avionics are installed and wired properly. Gone are the days of long down times, troubleshooting, cutters, crimpers, zip ties, soldering irons and wiring diagrams."
