[Avionics Today 08-04-2016] FAA has approved the G5 electronic flight instrument in type certificated fixed-wing General Aviation (GA) aircraft. Installation approval is accomplished via Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) with a comprehensive Approved Model List (AML) containing 562 aircraft models. The G5 is a standalone primary source for aircraft attitude or turn coordination information that also displays secondary information such as airspeed, altitude and more.

Availability of the STC represents the FAA’s initiative to permit specific enhancements to aircraft in an effort to improve GA pilot situational awareness, according to Garmin.
