Garmin G1000 upgrades on King Air


Hawker Beechcraft Services announces six orders for G1000 upgrades on King Air 300/350 aircraft

Hawker Beechcraft Services announced
it has taken orders for six Garmin G1000 fully integrated flight deck
installations for the Beechcraft King Air 300/350.

Garmin recently received the
supplemental type certificate (STC) from the Federal Aviation Administration for
this upgrade. With this STC, the G1000 upgrade is now available at HBS
facilities for a wide range of models in the world’s best-selling line of
turboprops: King Air C90, 200, B200, 300 and 350 models.

“The G1000 is a very popular
upgrade for operators of our King Air aircraft,” said Christi Tannahill, senior
vice president, Global Customer Support. “We have seen considerable interest
from customers and we expect to see much more now that the STC for the King Air
300/350 is finalized. Our HBS facilities have completed numerous King Air 90
and 200 installations and we look forward to additional King Air 350 projects.”
