Victor’s Vectors: GPS and technically advanced aircraft
When I think of the phrase” technically advanced aircraft” or TAA, I picture an Embraer Phenom 300, Cessna Citation Mustang, or Socata TBM 850. However, according to the FAA, a TAA is simply an aircraft with a moving map display, IFR GPS, and an autopilot. With this definition in mind, a new and greatly diverse picture emerges. Just about any aircraft can become technically advanced by simply adding a GPS 400W in an airplane with a compatible autopilot. In addition, with the advantages of the G600 and G500 displays, retrofit programs including integrated systems are finding their way into many older aircraft that previously did not have these capabilities. For example, the Daher-Socata TB20 Trinidad was recently approved under supplemental type certificate in Europe. Also, the G1000 retrofit program that started with the King Air C90 and moved to the King Air 200 series continues to grow with the Cessna CitationJet. We’re expecting G1000 certification for the CitationJet in the near future, and those who have flown it so far are impressed. Check out Business & Commercial Aviation's initial review. With all of the systems and capabilities available to
aircraft today, it makes me wonder what will be considered standard equipment
for an airplane in the future.
