Moline, IL, May 15, 2012 - Elliott Aviation, a leader in a diverse set of business aviation services is now certified to install the Garmin G1000 Avionics Suite in the King Air 300 and 350 airframes. Garmin’s recent certification allows King Air 300 and 350 operators the opportunity to have the same flat-panel upgrade as owners of the 90 and 200 series.
As the number one retrofitter of the Garmin G1000 in King Air airframes, Elliott has already installed two G1000’s in King Air 350 and one King Air 300 and has a backlog of over 15 more scheduled. Contributing to Elliott Aviation’s success in the program is their quality control process that includes building all wiring harnesses and connectors in house, laser stamping the wiring, installing original factory wiring tags and removing all existing avionics wiring and connectors from nose to tail to allow for a maximum useful load for the customer. Elliott Aviation’s successes in the program have allowed them to streamline the program to offer a 15 day downtime guarantee, the shortest in the industry.
“With our success in the G1000 retrofit program, we are excited to have the ability to provide this solution to King Air 300 and 350 operators,” said Greg Sahr, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Business Development. “This allows for a new market to be able to have one of the most successful avionics packages in recent history.”
