ATLANTA, April 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlanta-based Precision Aviation Group (PAG) subsidiary Gardner Aviation Services (GAS), announces the completion of its 3rd Enstrom 480B Garmin G-500H installation and Avionics upgrade. The Rotorcraft Services Division (RSD) performed the upgrade for Denver, CO-based Mountain One Helicopters.

David Mast, PAG President and CEO said: "GAS has been performing Avionics upgrades/installs, retrofits, and airframe maintenance on Helicopters for over 18 years. However, similar to our other business units, we wanted to differentiate the Rotary Wing from the Fixed Wing business. We launched the RSD in February at HAI, and are excited to have completed these 3 Enstrom 480B G-500H installs and other Avionics upgrades shortly thereafter."
Karl Gardner, President of GAS said: "We are proud of the expansion of our Rotorcraft specific upgrades/installations through our Rotorcraft Services Division. For Mountain One Helicopters' Enstrom 480B, we performed a full Avionics upgrade that included a Garmin G-500H glass panel with Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT), Garmin GNS-430W, SL-40 com, GTS-800 traffic system, GDL-69A XM weather/audio and a 406 MHZ ELT system. We are excited about the way the RSD continues to grow, and look forward to the future."
