Garmin, Olathe, Kan., received FAA Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certification with an Approved Model List for the G600, an avionics suite. The approval allows the G600 to be installed in 785 different makes and models of aircraft, including twin combustion engine and turbo-prop engine aircraft with a certification weight up to 12,500 pounds. The system includes two individual displays – a PFD and MFD – and it combines primary flight data including attitude and air data with navigation, weather, terrain and traffic data. The system, which measures 10-inches by 6.7-inches, is designed to integrate with Garmin's panel mount WAAS GPS products. It replaces traditional mechanical gyroscopic flight instruments with Garmin's solid state Attitude and Heading Reference System.
