Additional Avionics Enhancements Available For The Kodiak

Other Enhancements Include TKS Tank In The Baggage Compartment

Quest Aircraft has unveiled new enhancements to the Garmin G1000 Avionics Suite in the Kodiak. The GWX 68 radar can now be installed as an option in new production Kodiaks or at any Quest authorized service center. The 4-color storm cell tracking system is a powerful weather avoidance tool that interfaces with the G1000 multifunction display (MFD). Earlier this year, Quest certified enhancements to the G1000 avionics system, including both new standard and optional equipment.

“The availability of the GWX 68 is another option we can offer customers that allows them to outfit their airplane to best suit their needs and mission profile,” said Steve Zinda, Director Sales and Marketing. “The G1000 is a state-of-the-art avionics suite and the enhancements we made earlier this year, along with the capability to now install a reliable, easy-to-interpret, real-time weather analysis tool enhance the Kodiaks ability to perform in all types of situations.” The Kodiak was the first turboprop installation of the G1000.

Another example of enhancements Quest is developing for the Kodiak is a TKS tank that can fit in the External Cargo Compartment. The Kodiak features a Certified Flight Into Know Ice (FIKI) TKS ice protection system, manufactured by CAV Aerospace. The project is a partnership between Quest, CAV Aerospace and Mid-Continent Aviation Services, and is expected to be available in 2013.

Quest has seen strong market acceptance in key market segments, including personal use, Part 135 operations, government, and humanitarian organizations. The company has also developed a special mission Kodiak, the Air Claw, in conjunction with Northrop Grumman.

The versatile Kodiak’s rugged aluminum construction combines superior STOL performance and high useful load. It offers proven turbine reliability with the Pratt & Whitney PT6 turbine engine, has the ability to land and take off from unimproved surfaces and is capable of working off floats without structural upgrades. The Kodiak can take off in under 1,000 feet at full gross takeoff weight of 7,255 lbs and climb at over 1,300 feet per minute.

Quest Aircraft Company is the manufacturer of the Kodiak, a 10-place single engine turboprop utility airplane, designed for STOL use and float capability. Headquartered in Sandpoint, Idaho, the company was established in 2001 and began deliveries of the Kodiak in December 2007.
