Confirms 59 Orders From NBAA
Following the introduction of the
Garmin G1000 integrated avionics package and TKS ice protection
into all Caravan models, Cessna announced this week at the Aircraft
Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Expo the planemaker received
59 Caravan orders at the recent National Business Aviation
Association (NBAA) Meeting and Convention.
As ANN reported, the Garmin
G1000 system designed for the Caravan includes three 10" displays
-- two primary flight displays (PFD) and one multi function display
(MFD). One of the PFDs can serve as a back up, increasing dispatch
The Caravan G1000 system incorporates the GFC700 - an
integrated, dual-channel digital autopilot. Other features include
a flight director, go-around mode and Wide Area Augmentation System
(WAAS) which can provide precision guidance to airports where there
are currently no precision approaches.
Incorporation of the Garmin G1000 integrated avionics package
will begin in the first half of 2008 on all Caravan models: the
Cessna 208, the Grand Caravan (208B) and the Super CargoMaster.
Cessna will offer optional TKS ice protection from Aerospace
Systems & Technology, Inc. on cargo pod-equipped Caravans
scheduled for delivery during the first half of 2008. The TKS ice
protection system releases glycol based fluid through laser-drilled
panels on the leading edges of the wings, and horizontal and
vertical stabilizers to reduce ice accumulation. A slinger ring on
the propeller also emits fluid to minimize ice accumulation on the
prop, windshield, cargo pod and landing gear.
