Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd.

The Florida Institute of Technology College of Aeronautics is the launch customer for this program, taking delivery of eight aircraft in 2013. “The G1000 is a highly capable flight deck perfectly suited for basic through advanced flight training, missions that the Seminole and Archer perform well,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “We’re thrilled that as a result of this program, more new pilots will have the opportunity to learn to fly behind an all-glass flight deck.” The G1000 integrates all primary flight information, navigation data, communications, terrain awareness, traffic, weather, and engine instruments on two 10.4-inch displays. The G1000’s reliable Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) provides accurate, digital output and referencing of the aircraft’s position, rate, vector and acceleration data. The G1000 also incorporates engine instruments, a large moving map, and supports a wide array of safety enhancing features, including Synthetic Vision (SVT), datalink weather, Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS), Garmin’s traffic awareness and collision avoidance product line and more.
