Touchscreen GPS Standard In A Classic Biplane

WACO Classic Aircraft Offers Garmin GTN Series As Standard Equipment

It's a little bit like a Tardis, when you think about it (sorry, non-Whovians). A time machine. Classic biplane on the outside, glass panel on the inside. WACO Classic Aircraft has started offering Garmin's GTN 650 touchscreen interface as standard equipment in all of its new production aircraft.

With the GTN 650’s touchscreen interface, the system's primary functions are normally about two taps away. Quickly pan across the map screen simply by swiping your finger across the 4.9-in. diagonal TFT display, or enter waypoint data with the onscreen alphanumeric entry. The unit is designed with raised grips in the bezel and a shelf across the lower edge of the display that serve as gripping points in both smooth and turbulent flight conditions. Traditional concentric knobs are also available for those who are used to that style of data input.
The standard GTN-650 Touch screen combined with the optional IFR Plus package that adds the Garmin GTN-750 large screen display with both a remote transponder and remote audio panel provides for a very clean but incredibly powerful navigation and safety solution. Combining the latest in multi-function display (MFD) features with touchscreen data entry and integrated radio tuning – as well as remote transponder and audio panel control – the GTN series offers technology that Garmin says "promises to redirect the course of General Aviation electronics."

Each model in the GTN lineup can support a wide array of optional weather, lightning and traffic system inputs for overlay on the moving map. Optional XM WX Satellite Weather, with graphical NEXRAD, METARs, and more, can be accessed through Garmin’s GDL 69 data link receiver (sold separately). And you’ll find room on the GTN 750 series’ 6.9-inch diagonal touchscreens to allow display of your airway charts and approach plates – which come pre-installed on these units in the form of standard Garmin FliteCharts. Or, if you prefer the Jeppesen format, ChartView electronic charts are available as an option.
