Piper Aircraft has received approval from the US FAA to incorporate the Garmin G1000 avionics suite into new single-engine Piper Archer aircraft models available in 2013.
Garmin’s G1000 is an integrated all-glass avionics panel that makes flight information easier to scan and process. The G1000 flight deck presents flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on large-format, high-resolution displays. It replaces the G500 suite currently on Archer aircraft.
The new avionics will be installed as standard equipment in the aircraft.
