Naples Jet Center (NJC) has delivered its first dual Garmin G600 panel refurbishment in a Twin Commander 1000. The dual G600 retrofit was part of a larger panel redesign and aircraft refurbishment, according to company officials.
The panel replacement began by removing the old and unnecessary wiring, and installing all new wiring harnesses for a custom-designed instrument array that featured recessed panels for the G600.
Garmin’s new G600 system represents a viable and affordable after-market glass retrofit option for older aircraft, company officials said. Using technology derived from the G1000 avionics system, the G600 package replaces old-style mechanical instruments in the panel with large-format LCD displays.
The installed system also included a scaled version of Garmin’s SVT Synthetic Vision, which uses graphics modeling to create a 3-D topographic landscape from the G600’s terrain alerting database.
In addition to the two G600s, NJC installed a GNS-530AW, a GNS-430A, a Garmin GMA-347 Audio Panel, 2 Garmin GTX-330 Transponders, an Avidyne EX-500 MFD with charts, Satellite Weather and Skywatch. Prior to the panel replacement, the airplane was refurbished with new paint, a new interior and fresh inspections.
