CubCrafters is displaying a new top-of-the-line instrument panel at this week’s SUN ’n FUN in cooperation with Garmin, which is simultaneously introducing its G3X Touch 10.6-inch touch-sensitive flight display system.
CubCrafters’ new panel, Executive GLASS touch, replaces the company’s previous high-end panel with an integrated suite of Garmin’s cutting-edge instruments. Executive GLASS touch is available immediately in CubCrafters Carbon Cub SS, Carbon Cub EX and Sport Cub S2 aircraft.
“We’re pleased that Garmin has chosen CubCrafters as their OEM partner for this debut,” says Randy Lervold, CubCrafters’ general manager. “Our Light-Sport Aircraft have the best-in-class fit, finish, performance and quality. Together with Garmin’s newest touch-sensitive flight display technology, CubCrafters’ models offer the best-in-class avionics.”
Executive GLASS touch is centered on Garmin’s new G3X Touch flight display system that includes the GDU 465 10.6-inch high-resolution touchscreen display. Along with the Garmin GTR 200 COMM and GTX 23 ES mode S transponder, the system integrates each of Garmin’s instruments for a logical, intuitive pilot interface, CubCrafters officials say.
The G3X Touch has Synthetic Vision and video input for cameras or Enhanced Vision Systems. The display layout is configurable and includes a front-loading SD card slot for software and database updates.
CubCrafters also includes Garmin’s Angle-of-Attack (AOA) sensor and Sirius XM Satellite Radio weather and audio as standard equipment on the Executive GLASS touch panel.
“Garmin’s big, new display and pilot interface are very exciting,” says Lervold. “Even with our Cub’s classic roots, our customers demand the most up-to-date instrumentation and avionics available. Executive GLASS touch represents Garmin’s newest and best ideas.”
Executive GLASS touch is available as an option in CubCrafters’ ready-to-fly LSA aircraft for $24,990. Experimental Amateur Builders can purchase the panel for $27,990. Buyers may also upgrade the panel to include Garmin’s Dual-Axis Autopilot at $4,990, and Garmin GDL 39R ADS-B datalink at $2,100.
