FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Banyan Air Service based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport recently completed the installation of a Dual Garmin 600 Glass Cockpit Upgrade on a Pilatus PC-12. The project also included a Garmin GTN-750, GTN-650, GMA-350, and Dual GTX-330 transponders. The installations were performed utilizing both Garmin and Pilatus STCs.
The Garmin dual G600 upgrade from Pilatus has provided one of the best glass cockpit modernization paths for the legacy Pilatus PC-12 aircraft on the market today, according to Banyan officials.
“By incorporating Synthetic Vision (SVT), radar display on the MFD, TAWS-B, and angle of attack display, Banyan has provided this operator with a fresh, new, and modern look for the aircraft,” says Paul Rose, Banyan vice president of technical sales.
The upgrade brings full LPV approach capability to the cockpit at the touch of a finger, officials noted.
Banyan also added dual fully ADS-B out compliant GTX-330(ES) transponders.
Banyan Air Service is an authorized Pilatus Service Center and an authorized Garmin sales and service center. Banyan is certified both FAA, EASA and has repair station approvals for Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, and Venezuela.
