Garmin Touts Industry-Leading Safety Enhancements and Global
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
Interested King Air owners should contact an authorized Garmin
G1000 upgrade dealer.
