The Garmin G1000 King Air Retrofit is the ultimate flight deck update for your King Air. Retrofit packages offer the latest in “turbine renewal” options for your King Air’s panel, bringing enhanced levels of operational simplicity and situational awareness to all your flight operations.
The G1000 retrofit suite integrates all primary flight, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic, radio frequency, engine and fuel data readouts on two 10.4-inch LCDs that serve as PFDs, one on each side, with a larger 15-inch MFD in the middle.
Optional SVT enables pilots to clearly visualize nearby flight and enroute navigation features, even in IFR or nighttime VFR, by recreating a 3-D virtual reality database landscape on the pilot and copilot PFDs.
Fully integrated with the G1000® glass flight deck, the GFC 700 is an advanced, AHRS-based automatic flight control system that provides flight director, autopilot, yaw damper, automatic and manual electric trim capabilities and brings a high level of digital sophistication to general aviation flight control.
Optional Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP) is available for King Air C90, 200, 300, and 350 series retrofits. As an additional safety feature when hand flying, ESP will apply a gentle corrective force to your yoke when it detects excessive pitch and roll. It also allows for coupled go arounds and can help protect from low airspeed when paired with a compatible angle of attack sensor.
WAAS-certified GPS navigation, dual integrated solid-state Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), and dual integrated RVSM-capable digital air data computers are standard features in the Garmin G1000 suite. For the King Air 200, 300 and 350 series, the G1000 retrofit will come with Reduced Vertical Separation Minimums (RVSM) access, allowing full utilization of the now-more-restrictive flight levels between 29,000 and 41,000 feet.
Thanks to WAAS — the FAA’s Wide Area Augmentation System — thousands of previously fair-weather-only airports now have the potential to offer GPS-guided “glidepath” approaches down to ILS-comparable minimums. And the G1000-equipped King Air comes ready to fly WAAS with full Class 3 approach capability using its dual VOR/Localizer/Glideslope receivers and dual TSO-c146a WAAS-GPS receivers.
