G1000-Equipped King Air C90 Receives New and Enhanced Capabilities



King Air C90 owners and operators will be pleased to know that they have access to new capabilities and enhanced operational benefits brought on by the latest software upgrade for the G1000 Integrated Flight Deck. This latest update offers new features including, NextGen components such as Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) compliance, user-defined holding patterns and the approval of optional equipment, which expands global operational capability.

NextGen Ready

G1000-equipped King Air C90 aircraft are one step closer to preparing for the demands brought on by NextGen. These options ensure aircraft meet industry requirements while expanding capabilities to allow for greater flexibility and improved situational awareness. These new features include:

  • Barometric Vertical Navigation (Baro-VNAV) approach capability
  • ADS-B Out Compliance 
  • Area Navigation (RNAV) capability that includes the ability to fly procedures with Radius-to-Fix (RF) segments

User-Defined Holds  

Based on popular customer requests, pilots now have the flexibility of building user-defined holding patterns. These holds may be created over an existing fix in the navigation database or over a user-defined waypoint. Additionally, for operators conducting SAR missions, the G1000 can automatically generate flight plans for three search patterns: Parallel Line Search, Expanding Square and Sector Search patterns. SAR is available as an option and aids in crew situational awareness during these critical missions.

New, Optional Equipment Upgrades

Optional equipment upgrades include the industry leading GWX 70 sold state weather radar, which offers significant improvements in capability, reliability and cost of ownership, compared to earlier generation magnetron-based weather radar systems. The GRS 7800 Attitude Heading and Reference System (AHRS) is also available as an optional equipment upgrade. The GRS 7800 enables free-gyro mode, greatly expanding the authorized area of operation up to North 84 degrees latitude.  

Money-Saving Rebates

Additionally, for select King Air operators who are considering a G1000 Integrated Flight Deck upgrade, two rebate programs are still available! For a limited time, new customers may be eligible for one of two new rebate programs that allow them to receive rebate savings of up to $50,000 on a qualifying King Air G1000 upgrade.
