Piper receives OK for Garmin G1000 in Seneca V's

Piper Aircraft, Inc. has received Type Certificate approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to incorporate the Garmin G1000 avionics suite into new twin-engine Piper Seneca V aircraft models for delivery beginning this year.

Piper Aircraft Inc. is one of the first manufacturers to adopt the most recent G1000 software supporting a three display avionics suite as standard equipment. Garmin's G1000 is a seamlessly integrated all-glass avionics suite that makes flight information easier to scan and process.

“The G1000's design brings new levels of situational awareness, simplicity and safety to the cockpit,” said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. “The G1000 with the standard three-display glass screens for the Seneca V gives pilots rich flight-critical data that provides exceptional situational awareness and contributes to safer flight.”

Worldwide Connectivity

The G1000 displays worldwide weather that informs pilots of METARs, TAFs and winds aloft around the globe, with an optional GSR 56 transceiver. Radar and satellite imagery are also available through this service for the United States, Southern Canada, Western Europe and Australia. In addition, the G1000 can support voice and data services that let the pilot make worldwide phone calls, send text messages and send email via SMS from the airplane's cockpit using the GTN as the dialing and messaging interface. 

The G1000 flight deck presents flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on three large-format, high-resolution displays. It replaces the dual Garmin G600 suite currently on Seneca V's. Garmin's reliable GRS77 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) provides accurate, digital output and referencing of aircraft position, rate, vector and acceleration data.

The latest Garmin G1000 software on the Seneca V includes Vertical Profile View, User-defined holding patterns, and the GSR 56 - Iridium Transceiver

The three display G1000-equipped Seneca V includes Dual 10” PFDs, Single 10” MFD, Dual GIA63W NAV/COM/GPS, S-TEC 55X Autopilot, Attitude and Heading Reference System, Air Data Computer (ADC), Dual IFR Enroute/Approach and WAAS Certified GPS, Electronic Engine Indication System (EIS), Garmin FliteCharts, SafeTaxi, GMA1347 Audio Panel, GTX 33 Mode S Transponder, Garmin GTS825 Traffic Advisory System (TAS) or Traffic Information Systems (TIS), and Aspen Standby System (EFD-100).
