Worried about an instrument malfunction or related emergency?
The BOM is your ideal backup solution! This wireless aerodynamic pod that mounts underneath the wing of your aircraft measures angle of attack, indicated airspeed, WAAS GPS, AHRS, ADS-B in, and data recording. It provides an affordable solution that gives you the peace of mind to safely overcome any instrument malfunction or related emergency. It's also an affordable way to modernize a vintage aircraft without using a single wire!

What are others already saying about the BOM?
"It really provides a level of peace of mind as a backup and it's an easy way to take features to planes that aren't as well equipped" - Fly With The Guys
"That's awesome! I'm really stoked about this BOM. I'm a believer in ADS-B" - Jonas Marcinko
"We get a lot of technology brought into this airplane, which is safety and reliability. I'm really happy with this!" - Kyle Bushman
"You can see that the BOM outputs pretty good data! It's accurate on the AHRS side and ADS-B in. It gives you weather, traffic, and all the stuff you want." - AVweb
"We can say that this device is working pretty well! I think it's really worth investing to get a complete EFIS with an ADS-B in. That's significant! A good GPS plus an artificial horizon. It's really an interesting solution." - Easy2fly.fr
Frequently Asked Questions:
- Does the BOM have an ADS-B out?
The BOM doesn't apply for ADS-B out since it is self-contained and not wired to the aircraft.
- Does the BOM have a warranty?
Yes, your unit is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date of original retail purchase.
- What is the drag coefficient of the BOM?
This aerodynamic design only produces 0.175 lbs of force at 100 knots and 0.7 Lbs of force at 200 knots. The dimensions are 10” x 3.7” x 1.8” with a total weight of 1 lb. The BOM is made out of delrin and anodized aluminum and contains a Li-Ion battery inside.
- How much speed can the BOM handle?
The minimum speed for the BOM is 32 knots and the maximum 210 knots. The turbine will start charging the unit at 60 knots.
- What apps is the BOM compatible with?
The BOM is compatible with our Levil Aviation App (free of subscription), iFly GPS, Aerovie, iEfis, EasyVFR, Fltplan, FlyWise Efis, iFlyPlanner, Naviator, Sky-Map, Xavion, ForeFlight, Avare, WingX Pro, Skydemon, Air Navigation Pro, FlyQ, and many more!
- Can I mount it on a certified aircraft?
Yes, the BOM is FAA NORSEE approved. NORSEE is a production approval that allows us to legally sell units for installation on certified aircraft. Installation approval is given by a mechanic under 14 CFR 1.1 / 14 CFR 43 Appendix A definition of a Minor Alteration. If the mechanic deems the installation of the NORSEE device as minor, then the device can be installed with a simple logbook entry. If the mechanic feels that the installation is considered major, then a field approval will be needed for installation.
- Is the BOM Approved for IFR approaches?
You may only use the BOM as a backup system on IFR and VFR conditions on Certified Aircraft and as a primary VFR on experimental and light-sport. The BOM was created as a redundancy device to safely overcome any instrument malfunction or related emergency.
- Will the BOM turn off during an engine failure?
No, the BOM won't turn off if the engine quits. There are only 3 possible ways to turn off your unit:
1. There's a magnet inside the red protective cover that will turn off the unit as soon as you put it on.
2. You can power off your unit using your smartphone or tablet.
3. The unit will turn off automatically after 10 minutes if it doesn't sense any AHRS or GPS movement.
You will always get a warning on your smartphone or tablet if the BOM isn't sensing any data. You can click "give me more time" on the app to keep the unit on.
- Does the BOM have engine information?
No, the BOM is self-contained and not wired to the aircraft. You would need any of our iLevil series connected to a GRT in order to display engine information on our free app.
- Can I use my navigation app with the Levil Aviation App at the same time?
Yes, you can use the Levil Aviation app simultaneously while using navigation tools such as Foreflight, iFlyGPS, WingX Pro, and many more side by side. For a more in-depth explanation watch the video below.
- Can I get weather information?
The BOM has real-time weather and traffic with an optimal high-quality ADS-B receiver. It also maximizes reception while maintaining low power consumption. There is no need for remote antennas. The BOM captures the weather and traffic information even where other devices won't reach it. Satellite weather is not available.
- Is it easy to install?
Yes, the installation was made easy by eliminating wires altogether and making the BOM a completely wireless interface system. For a more in-depth explanation watch the video below.
- Remote location: Underneath the wing or anyplace away from propeller backwash.
- Positioned close to the leading edge of the wing (for GPS reception).
- Align the BOM with the wing chord
Once it is installed, the BOM connects via Wi-Fi to a tablet inside the cockpit and data can be displayed on multiple Apps thanks to its open protocol.
- Can I install the BOM on both low and high-wing aircraft?
Yes, you can easily install the BOM on a low and high-wing aircraft with our bracket or inspection plate. Our strut mount only works with high-wing aircraft.
- What is the calibration process?
Once in the air, calibrate the AOA, Airspeed, and attitude on our Levil Aviation App. For a more in-depth explanation watch the video below.
- What about ice?
The BOM has a heated pitot-static system which is suitable for any condition (a nice-smooth day to light icy weather).
- Can I store my flight data?
All flights are stored inside an SD card which you can access anytime to replay, review, analyze, and share. Recording features are also useful for flight schools.
- Is the BOM self-charging?
Yes, with its high-quality turbine and incredible design the BOM is able to self-power at a low speed and even recharge its internal battery as the aircraft picks up more speed!
- Can I connect it to more than 1 tablet or smartphone?
Yes, the BOM can be connected to as many as 5 devices simultaneously, providing redundancy and almost limitless panel display options. The multi-device option is only available for iOS systems like iPads and iPhones.
- What's inside the box?
Wireless Broadcasting Outer Module unit, USB to mini USB cable, mounting brackets, bracket screws, protector case with magnetic switch, Remove Before Flight flag, NORSEE papers, and Micro SD card. You can watch this unboxing video for more information.
- Do you have manuals available?
We're certain that you'll love the BOM! or we're happy to offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 30 days after you receive your unit.
Love this product. This is the second one I’ve purchased. Looking forward to you possibly getting it certified for primary instruments.
On a flight north of Brainerd MN the vacuum failed in our Cessna Skyhawk and the gyros stopped working. The BOM did exactly what it is designed for and worked perfectly on the 1.5 hr return trip home.
I’m looking forward to using all the features.
Just downloaded the app and hooked it to the plane. Works exactly as advertised. It’s a back up but could easily be my primary EFIS. Why didn’t anybody think of this earlier?
