Textron offer G1000 NXi upgrades for King Airs
Textron Aviation will be offering the next-generation Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck retrofit for Beechcraft King Air 200/300/350 turboprop aircraft.
Garmin’s G1000 NXi platform features significant flight display modernisation with faster processing times, improved graphics rendering and enhanced readability with LED back-lighting.
“We are excited to bring yet another modernised solution to our King Air customer base.”
Brad Thress, senior vice president, customer service said: “We are excited to bring yet another modernised solution to our King Air customer base. Garmin’s G1000 NXi platform presents a valuable avionics solution for our King Air owners and operators who want an integrated flight deck that combines the latest in cockpit technology with an upgraded visual interface.”
For new installations, the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck provides an estimated weight savings of 250 pounds or more in King Air aircraft, allowing additional baggage, passenger and/or fuel load flexibility.
Current King Air owners and operators with an existing G1000 integrated flight deck can easily upgrade to the G1000 NXi platform with minimal aircraft downtime and disruption of the panel as the displays preserve the same footprint and connector; therefore panel modifications are not required.
“As the manufacturer, we have built and delivered more than 7,300 King Air turboprops to customers around the world. As such, our capabilities and expertise in supporting the King Air fleet are unmatched,” added Thress.
