This is the ultimate flight deck update for your King Air. Available now for the C90 and 200 series – and coming mid-2011 to the 300 and 350 series – Garmin’s G1000 retrofit packages offer the latest in “turbine renewal” options for your King Air’s panel, bringing enhanced levels of operational simplicity and situational awareness to all your flight operations.
Integrate Your Cockpit
Garmin’s G1000 retrofit suite integrates all primary flight, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic, radio frequency, engine and fuel data readouts on large-format, high-definition LCDs. The cockpit layout features a central 15-inch multi-function display (MFD), flanked by 10.4-inch primary flight displays (PFDs) at the pilot and copilot positions. Because it integrates so many components into one system, the G1000 comes in at a weight far lower than most typical avionics installs.
Look to the Future. In Virtual 3-D.
For added visual orientation, optional Garmin SVT™ synthetic vision technology is now available with your G1000 retrofit. Using sophisticated graphics modeling, the system recreates a 3-D “virtual reality” database landscape on the pilot and copilot PFDs. Thus, Garmin SVT enables you to clearly visualize nearby flight and enroute navigation features – even in solid IFR or nighttime VFR conditions.
Put it on Autopilot
The G1000 system for your King Air also includes Garmin’s revolutionary GFC 700, a three-axis, fully digital, dual channel, fail passive Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS). The GFC 700 is capable of using all data available to G1000, enabling it to maintain airspeed references and optimize performance over the entire airspeed envelope.
Stay Safe with ESP
Because nothing’s more important than the safety of you and your passengers, Garmin offers Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP) as an option for new King Air 200, 300 and 350 series retrofits. ESP provides an additional layer of protection when hand flying the aircraft. Using the servos of the autopilot system, ESP applies a gentle corrective force to your yoke when it detects excessive pitch and roll. It also allows for coupled go arounds and can help protect from low airspeed when paired with a compatible angle of attack sensor.
Fly with GPS, AHRS, RVSM and more
Other standard features of your King Air’s G1000 suite include WAAS-certified GPS navigation, dual integrated solid-state Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), and dual integrated RVSM-capable digital air data computers. For the King Air 200, 300 and 350 series, your G1000 retrofit will come with Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums (RVSM) access, allowing full utilization of the now-more-restrictive flight levels between 29,000 and 41,000 feet.
WAAS Makes it Better
With dual VOR/Localizer/Glideslope receivers and dual TSO-c146a WAAS-GPS receivers, you have more options when it comes to flying and landing your King Air. Thanks to WAAS – the FAA’s Wide Area Augmentation System – thousands of previously fair-weather-only airports now have the potential to offer GPS-guided “glidepath” approaches down to ILS-comparable minimums. And your G1000-equipped King Air comes ready to fly WAAS with full Class 3 approach capability.
Enjoy Seamless Mapping and Graphics
The King Air G1000 MFD seamlessly integrates Garmin’s built-in terrain, obstacles and navigation databases, providing a clear, concise picture of where you are and where you’re heading. An additional Jeppesen® database supports onscreen navigation, communication and mapping functions. Using information from the terrain and U.S. obstacles databases, G1000 displays color coding to graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom ahead. Your G1000 also comes with Class-B TAWS (Terrain Awareness and Warning System) – or optional Class-A TAWS on new King Air 200, 300 and 350 series retrofits – for an extra margin of safety in the air. Garmin SafeTaxi®, a built-in database of over 950 U.S. airport diagrams, helps monitor your location on unfamiliar airports. And preloaded FliteCharts®* provide electronic versions of National Aeronautical (NACO) terminal procedures and approach plates for over 2,900 U.S. airports.
Get Traffic, Weather and More
With the GTX 33 transponder with extended squitter capability (optional on the King Air C90 and included on other series), the G1000 provides ADS-B out capabilities. When coupled with an optional traffic system like the Garmin GTS 820/850, the system also provides ADS-B in capabilities for comprehensive active traffic monitoring.
In addition, the King Air G1000 suite comes standard with Garmin’s GWX 68™ digital color radar. At 6.5 kilowatts, it packs the power to penetrate serious weather. You’ll also have access to up-to-the-minute XM WX Satellite Weather™ services with the standard GDL 69A data link receiver. An XM subscription provides coverage for the entire U.S. – with NEXRAD images, METARs, TAFs, TFRs, lightning, winds and more. Plus, you can even select and enjoy over 170 audio channels of XM in-flight entertainment (subscription required). For international weather services, as well as text messaging and voice calling capabilities, simply add a GSR 56 Iridium satellite datalink to the system. An optional GDL 59 can also be implemented to transmit logged engine trend, exceedence, system maintenance and crew advisory system (CAS) data over Wi-Fi networks.
Plus, the G1000 system is easily updated and upgraded, so you can be sure that it will last well into the future. And it’s all backed by a two-year warranty (and optional FliteLevel Extended Warranty), as well as Garmin’s #1-ranked customer support.
*A single update of FliteCharts comes preloaded on the unit. FliteCharts will automatically disable when the data is over six (6) months out-of-date (six month period to commence when map is loaded in the factory). Each box will contain a certificate for one free current FliteCharts download. After the six month period, you must purchase a subscription for continuous FliteCharts chart availability.
