G1000 Upgrade Receives EASA Approval

Garmin Touts Industry-Leading Safety Enhancements and Global Datalink

Garmin says it has received the European Aviation Safety Agency’s validation of the US Supplemental Type Certificate for the installation of Garmin’s Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP) and Iridium datalink in G1000-equipped King Air 200 and B200 models. These technologies offer pilots unique safety-enhancing capabilities such as stability augmentation, an onboard worldwide datalink weather solution and a variety of voice and data services.

Garmin ESP works in the background during flight to assist the pilot in maintaining the aircraft in a safe, flight stable condition, helping to prevent the onset of stalls and spins, steep spirals or other loss-of-control conditions. ESP gently nudges the controls back toward stable flight whenever pitch, roll or high-speed deviations exceed the recommended limits, and will then disengage when the aircraft returns to its normal flight.

The STC also includes approval for Garmin’s Iridium-based transceiver, the GSR 56, which gives access to worldwide weather. RADAR, satellite imagery, lightning, SIGMET and AIRMET data is also available in select countries throughout Europe.

The GSR 56 also offers an Iridium voice and data service (subscription required) that lets pilots or passengers make worldwide Iridium-based calls or send and receive text messages while in-flight or on the ground. From the cockpit, the dialing interface is provided through the multi-function display (MFD) and incoming call messages are prioritized with other aural messages.

Interested King Air owners should contact an authorized Garmin G1000 upgrade dealer.
