Piper Aircraft, Inc. has announced that the revolutionary PiperJet will deploy the all new, state-of-the-art Garmin G3000 – the world’s first touchscreen-controlled integrated flightdeck for turbine aircraft.
“The PiperJet is an amazing aircraft with a unique blend of capabilities that makes it the best-in-class choice for pilots focused on performance, style, utility, capability and pricing,” said Piper President John D. Becker. “We have a long and rich relationship with Garmin, and our choice builds on that legacy while incorporating avionics excellence equal to the PiperJet’s promise.”
Designed specifically for Part 23 turbine aircraft, the G3000 is Garmin’s evolutionary leap forward in taking glass avionics to a much higher level. It seamlessly integrates numerous Garmin-designed system components into an easy-to-use flightdeck, the heart of which is the all new GTC 570 vehicle management system: a 5.7-inch diagonal touchscreen controller that uses a desktop-like menu interface with intuitive icons. The console-mounted GTC 570 allows full control of radios, audio management, flight management, weather systems management, synoptics (graphical systems displays) and other key vehicle systems.
