AvL’s 1.0m Manual FlyAway Antenna System weighs less than 70lbs when packed and is compact enough to fit into one airline checkable, IATA-compliant case. The robust carbon fiber reflector is rugged enough for operations in harsh conditions. The antenna’s tripod base can be anchored, and the entire antenna assembles in 5 minutes.

AvL’s Manual FlyAway Antennas are lightweight, compact, portable, and robust with carbon fiber reflectors and easy-to-assemble tripods. AvL’s Az/El positioners feature easy pointing as well as fine-tuning, and are easy and quick to assemble. As with all AvL antenna systems, the Manual FlyAway Antennas interface with any modem, RF electronics, or satellite service, and achieve pointing accuracy and pointing stability even in the most extreme conditions.
