Scenes from the NBAA convention


NBAA 2011 016NBAA 2011 008 It's the final day of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention and Garmin is in Las Vegas showing off the latest cockpit technologies from the G5000 integrated flight deck to the all-new aera 796 touchscreen portable GPS. The show has been bustling with lots of people and exciting news. On Monday, Garmin’s G5000 integrated flight deck was unveiled as the cockpit on Cessna’s new Citation Latitude mid-size business jet. The G5000 is a touchscreen-controlled integrated flight deck designed for Part 25 business aircraft, and the cockpit on the Latitude features three 14-inch LCD displays and four touchscreen controllers.

That cockpit will feature three 14-inch LCD displays and two touchscreen controllers. Cabin mock-ups of both the Latitude and the M2 are on display at the show in Las Vegas. 

King Air 350In addition to all of the impressive mock-ups in the convention hall, there is also a static display full of awesome airplanes. One of those is a King Air 350 equipped with Garmin’s G1000 retrofit. Certification on this installation is expected before the end of the year, at which time all of the models in the King Air family will be eligible for this incredible upgrade. The G1000 retrofit has been hugely popular with owners of the King Air C90 and 200/B200 because of the way it breathes new life into the aircraft providing leading edge technology like synthetic vision, digital autopilot, electronic charts and more. Check out the video to learn more about why King Air owners love their G1000!
