G1000 Certified on Piper Meridian

By Tish Drake | April 16, 2009

Piper Aircraft certified Garmin's G1000 glass avionics suite for its Piper Meridian turboprop. Initial deliveries of the Piper Meridian with the new avionics suite are expected to begin immediately, the companies said. The G1000 presents flight-critical data — from engine and flight instrumentation to navigation, communication, weather, terrain and traffic data — digitally on three large-format, high-resolution displays — a 15-inch multi-function display and two 10.4-inch primary flight displays. Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) will also be offered as standard on the Piper Meridian.
