Garmin® Expands Global Coverage With New Avionics Validations

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced that it has received several new international validations including approval in Europe for the King Air 300/350 G1000 upgrade as well as the more recent software enhancements for the GTN 750 and 650 series in Europe, Canada, and Brazil.

“Garmin continues a legacy of making significant technological investments to ensure its avionics equipment is available to aircraft operators around the globe,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “We design our products with global requirements in mind, and these validations affirm that our products and technologies continue to meet the demands of customers around the world.”

Specifically, Garmin has received the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) validation of the U.S. STC (supplemental type certificate) for the installation of the G1000® avionics suite in the King Air 300/350 models. This new approval adds to the existing validations from both Brazil and Canada, and adds to the King Air 200/B200 U.S. STC validations in Europe, Canada, and Brazil.

The installation of the G1000 system dramatically modernizes the King Air’s panel and meets current European regulatory requirements including 8.33 kHz VHF Communication, VHF Com Immunity from FM radio broadcasts, B-RNAV, P-RNAV, APV/SBAS, RVSM, SSR Mode S Elementary Surveillance (ELS), SSR Mode S Enhanced Surveillance (EHS), ADS-B (Automatic Dependant Surveillance Broadcast), and TAWS Class A or Class B. Additionally, this validation allows pilots to fly with the best-in-class GFC 700 autopilot as standard equipment. The King Air 300/350 STC also includes approval for Garmin’s synthetic vision technology (SVT™) that presents a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacle, traffic and the runway environment on the G1000’s primary flight display. Other popular options include global connectivity (worldwide weather, voice, and text messaging), as well as TAS and TCAS traffic systems, and more. The entire upgrade has the potential to increase the useful load by approximately 250 pounds.
