DAHER-SOCATA has delivered the first TBM 700 with a Garmin G600/GTN 750 new-generation glass cockpit avionics retrofits.
The Garmin G600 is an instrument panel upgrade that pairs a liquid-crystal primary flight display (PFD) and multi-function display (MFD) in a single 10-inch bezel. Capabilities include Synthetic Vision Technology, providing a “virtual reality” perspective view along the aircraft’s flight path.
DAHER-SOCATA also offers a package with the combination of G600 and a Garmin GTN 750 GPS/NAV/COM system which uses a touchscreen interface on a larger display screen, offering graphical flight planning, transponder control, audio control and electronic chart capabilities. L-3 Avionics Systems’ Trilogy ESI-2000 standby attitude equipment also is a part of the package to replace traditional stand-by instruments.
The initial customer aircraft to be modernized is a 2004 model year TBM 700C2 owned and operated by Louis-Alain Dumont, which received an additional avionics package incorporating a second Garmin G600 dual screen for the copilot, a second GTN 750, a GMA 35 audio panel, a GSR 56 satphone system and new GTX33 transponders.
“The new installation is a huge improvement over the original equipment. It has completely transformed my TBM 700C2,” stated Louis-Alain Dumont.
