Heli-Expo Day 1: Garmin enters medium lift helicopter market with G5000H


G5000H1Today is the opening day of Heli-Expo in Dallas, Texas, and Garmin came prepared with some exciting news for helicopter operators. Just this morning we unveiled the G5000H, a touchscreen-controlled integrated flight deck specifically designed for medium lift helicopters. Bell Helicopter is the first helicopter Relentlessmanufacturer to announce that they’ve selected the system, and it will be installed on the Bell 525 Relentless, a new super medium transport helicopter that was also introduced today at the show.

The G5000H features widescreen, high resolution primary flight displays (PFD) and multi-function displays (MFD). The system supports multiple display sizes and is scalable to support a large number of display and touchscreen controller configurations.

The G5000H has a multitude of great features and capabilities designed to reduce workload and enhance situational awareness:

  • Helicopter Synthetic Vision Technology (HSVT)
  • Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS)
  • Worldwide datalink weather solutions
  • Global connectivity options including the ability to make and receive phone calls
  • 3D Audio
  • Telligence Voice Command
