Victor’s Vectors: G600 and RVSM


Conquest Webster defines the word technophile as an enthusiast of technology or as the origin implies someone with a love for technology.  After working for Garmin for a couple of years now, I am convinced that this word is in the job description for everyone employed; because Garmin continues to press the limit of technology and capabilities for our products.  Today, we announced that we’re working towards a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM) certification for installations of the G600 in the Cessna 441 Conquest II.  This certification will allow aircraft that fly above 29,000 ft to reduce the current vertical separation requirement from 2,000 ft to a 1,000 ft minimum.  As the FAA website points out, this will allow aircraft to safely fly more optimum profiles, gain fuel savings, and increase airspace capacity.  The first certification is expected to be completed early in 2011.  Man, I love this stuff.
