G1000 Avionics Selected for Seneca V
Piper Aircraft has selected Garmin's G1000 integrated flight deck for its twin-engine Seneca V model aircraft.
“We have a strong, long-standing partnership with Piper Aircraft, and we are honored by the confidence they continue to show in Garmin avionics,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “With the G1000-equipped Seneca V, all new-production Piper M-Class and Twin-Class aircraft will now feature a Garmin integrated flight deck, and we look forward to continuing to serve Piper owners and operators with best-in-class cockpit solutions.”
The G1000 integrates all primary flight information, navigation data, communications, terrain awareness, traffic, weather, and engine data on three 10.4-inch, high-resolution displays. The G1000’s Attitude and Heading Reference System provides digital output and referencing of the aircraft’s attitude, rate and acceleration data. The G1000 also incorporates a large moving map, and supports a wide array of safety enhancing features, including Synthetic Vision Technology, Terrain Awareness and Warning System, datalink weather, Garmin’s traffic awareness and collision avoidance systems, and more.
