Avilution breaks ground on new facility at Huntsville/KSHV

Avilution, an innovative software company that has been developing a groundbreaking avionics framework, broke ground today on a new facility at Huntsville International Airport in Huntsville, Ala.

“Our customers are innovative pioneers who are building the next generation of general aviation aircraft,” said Mark Spencer, Founder of Avilution. “We are working to provide customized solutions that fit the aircraft’s mission and unique requirements.”

The avionics framework developed by Avilution is called eXtensible Flight System (XFS). This framework allows for the rapid development of robust and future-proof avionics that free the consumer from vendor lock-in and obsolescence. Avilution’s first packaged commercial offering, the Unpanel™, is an unique avionics package tailor made for VFR pilots. The new facility will house up to 24 employees and the facility is slated to be completed in late October 2020.

“Huntsville International Airport is proud to be home to Avilution,” said Rick Tucker, CEO of the Port of Huntsville. “Being that we are an airport and the software being developed by Avilution is avionics framework, we couldn’t think of a better location for the facility. We are excited to see world class software that is shaping our industry being developed right here in Huntsville.”
