DAHER-SOCATA has launched a retrofit for its TB20 Trinidad GT single engine piston with a Garmin G500 glass cockpit.
The retrofit, which gained European supplemental type certification (STC) in April, features a 16.5cm primary flight display and a multifunction display as well as an attitude/heading reference system (AHRS). G500 customers also can install a tailored version of Garmin’s synthetic vision technology software and Chartview as an option, along with the new Garmin GAD 43 autopilot offered for the avionics upgrade.
“More than 2000 TB ‘Caribbean line’ aircraft were manufactured, and DAHER-SOCATA is committed to offering support and services such as this avionics retrofit for our customers to keep their aircraft flying over the long term,” explained Nicolas Chabbert, senior vice president of DAHER-SOCATA Airplane Division.
DAHER-SOCATA is debuting the retrofit on a Trinidad at the Eur-Avia trade show at Cannes-Mandelieu International Airport from June 4-6.
