Trig Avionics


About us

The Company

Trig Avionics Limited was founded in January 2004. Our ambition is to provide the most innovative certified avionics products for aircraft owners and operators. With a global network of over 500 Approved Trig Dealers in 42 countries our popularity continues. A growing community of pilots appreciate our superior products and dedicated customer service. It’s all part of joining the Trig family.

Trig’s CEO Andy Davis started the company back in 2004. An entrepreneur and pilot, he set out to produce a solid state and energy efficient Mode S transponder. A new generation of transponders were required to meet a European wide mandate for Mode S. At the time aircraft owners had few options available, so Andy and his team changed this. Our resulting TT31 transponder set a new benchmark in quality, capability and value.

From our Edinburgh base we encompass all aspects of design and development. We are proud to manufacture in Britain, continuing a strong aviation heritage.

Trig has a ‘Better by Design’ philosophy ensuring products are simple to use, truly innovative and provide pilots with features that really matter. We have a strong commitment to helping our customers meet regulatory changes. Our free ADS-B STC program and free European Minor Change Approvals are used every day by our customers to get airborne, reducing the cost of compliance.

We are committed to providing the best customer service. We have Trig Service Centres in Europe, Australia and the U.S. We offer prompt and responsive support throughout the lifetime of every Trig product. This helps to underpin our great customer reputation and ensures our future business success amongst those yet to discover Trig.

Trig is grateful for the support of Archangel Investors Limited and Scottish Enterprise.

Trig is a privately held limited company, based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
