Victor’s Vectors: Sky’s the limit with King Air G-1000


6a00d83451bb7069e20148c6f2e728970c Pardon the pun, but the King Air G-1000 program is really taking off. Recently Garmin announced that it has received European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) validation of the U.S. STC (supplemental type certificate) for the installation of the G-1000 avionics suite in the King Air 200 and B200. The installation of the G-1000 system dramatically modernizes the King Air’s panel and meets current European regulatory requirements including 8.33 kHz VHF Communication, VHF Com Immunity from FM radio broadcasts, B-RNAV, P-RNAV, RVSM, SSR Mode S Elementary Surveillance (ELS), SSR Mode S Enhanced Surveillance (EHS), ADS-B (Automatic Dependant Surveillance Broadcast), and TAWS Class B. The King Air 200/B200 STC also includes approval for Garmin’s synthetic vision technology (SVT) that presents a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacle, traffic and the runway environment on the G-1000’s PFD so that the image replicates what pilots would see outside the cockpit on a clear day. The King Air G-1000 program is putting leading-edge technology found in today’s light jets and making it available to a legendary turbo prop. For the King Air and the G-1000 the sky’s the limit.
