Roger’s Runway: Flying Glass with Quartz Mountain


RogersrunwayQuartz_blog Last week at Sun ‘n Fun, Garmin announced the latest edition to the integrated glass cockpit – the G950 avionics suite. The first company to select this newest family member is Quartz Mountain Aerospace for their 11E. Many of you are probably wondering what the difference is between this new suite and the G1000 system. Well, the G950 shares many features of its big brother G1000; it uses the same displays, has the same weather ability, and the same terrain and obstacle data. The G950 even has the ability to display the Garmin SafeTaxi and FliteCharts. The biggest difference between the two is that the G950 does not come with the GFC 700 autopilot. That being said, the G950 is a good fit for OEM customers that desire to have G1000 capability but are willing to do the certification on their own. I got a chance to see the 11E at Sun ‘n Fun, and I can definitely say that the G950 will be a good fit for this airplane.
