EAA Oshkosh – Day 4



All of our product announcements have generated buzz here at EAA Oshkosh, but one that we haven’t mentioned here on the blog is the G1000 retrofit for the King Air C90. The King Air is a remarkable airplane that can do just about anything. Because of these capabilities, many owners don’t want to part with it for the sake of a glass cockpit. So, we’ve made it possible for King Air owners to have both — the airplane they love and the panel they want (check out the before and after pictures of the King Air panel to see why this is such a big deal for pilots). The King Air C90 is Garmin’s first G1000 retrofit program. We’re even throwing our new autopilot into the deal, and that brings us to today’s frequently asked question at Oshkosh:

Q.  Will the G1000 equipped King Air c90’s have Garmin’s GFC 700 Autopilot?

A. Yes. The GFC 700 autopilot will be installed with the c90’s G1000.  This means King Air c90’s will have a truly integrated panel – one where every element of the avionics panel was designed to communicate with each other to reduce cockpit workload. And because all of the components were designed to communicate with each other, the GFC 700 can use all of the data available to the G1000 including the ability to maintain airspeed references.  Sweet!
