Garmin and Pratt & Whitney Canada Offer King Air Aircraft Upgrade Incentives


King Air Typepad

We are thrilled to announce, along with Pratt & Whitney Canada, new incentives to provide King Air aircraft owners and operators significant savings on the G1000 Integrated Flight Deck and qualifying P&WC engine upgrades. The upgrade incentives apply to a broad range of King Air aircraft models. On the King Air 300/350 aircraft, customers will receive a free G1000 Integrated Flight Deck upgrade with the purchase of a new pair of PT6A-60A engines via P&WC’s Fleet Enhancement exchange Program. Other eligible engine and avionics upgrades will qualify for savings of up to US$105,000, providing customers with high-performance technologies that expand aircraft utility and greatly improve the capability and reliability of their King Air aircraft.

King Air aircraft owners and operators can receive substantial savings on upgrades offered by Garmin and P&WC. Through January 29, 2016, customers who pursue simultaneous engine and avionics upgrades offered by both companies may be eligible to save up to US$105,000. Furthermore, King Air 300/350 aircraft owners and operators who elect to perform the Fleet Enhancement Program (FEP) upgrade offered through P&WC may be eligible for a G1000 upgrade at no cost. Customers who have pursued either a G1000 retrofit or select P&WC PT6A engine upgrades within the last calendar year may also be eligible for incentives.

The G1000 Integrated Flight Deck retrofit program provides pilots with superior situational awareness tools, which support a wide range of capabilities including coupled Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS/SBAS) approaches. Superior flight control technology is provided by Garmin’s integrated autopilot, offering optimized performance throughout the aircraft’s flight envelope. LPV/APV approach capability adds more utility to existing aircraft and is among a number of safety enhancing benefits offered by the G1000 suite. With the G1000 upgrade, these aircraft also receive a fully integrated, FAA/EASA rule-compliant Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out solution, so aircraft are positioned to meet NextGen industry requirements. Factory new zero-time avionics contribute to a total weight savings of up to 200 pounds and significantly reduce cost of ownership and operation.

Pratt & Whitney Canada’s engine exchange programs covered under this new incentive include the PT6SMARTSM Flat Rate Engine Exchange Program, the Converter Enhancement Program (CEP) and the Fleet Enhancement Program (FEP). Aircraft life is further extended with zero-time factory engine overhauls through the PT6SMARTSM program, which minimizes aircraft down time and offers a cost effective approach to engine maintenance. Factory-new engines offered through the CEP provide operators with performance improvements including range, speed, fuel efficiency and more, while also offering an associated warranty with the engine upgrade. The FEP maximizes aircraft dispatch reliability and reduces operating and maintenance costs. Customers also receive new life-limited components, a new factory warranty and realize enhanced aircraft resale value associated with the FEP and CEP upgrade programs.
