Moline, IL, July 9, 2013 - Elliott Aviation, a leader in a diverse set of business aviation services is currently installing their 100th King Air Garmin G1000 retrofit. As the industry leader in King Air Garmin G1000 retrofits, Elliott Aviation has installed more than all other worldwide dealers combined. In addition to the Garmin retrofit, the King Air B200 will also receive new Blackhawk engines, full paint, full interior, Raisbeck modifications, BLR winglets, LumaTech LED annunciator panels and Frakes exhaust.
The G1000 retrofit is currently available for the King Air C90A, 200/B200 and the 300/350. The G1000 features state-of-the-art display monitors and a full menu of features designed for safer and more efficient flying. Since the first Garmin G1000 King Air STC, Elliott Aviation has retrofitted 42 King Air 300/350’s, 42 King Air 200’s and 15 King Air 90’s.
The Garmin G1000 integrated avionics suite incorporates graphical weather, synthetic vision, traffic, terrain and other avoidance systems in a simple, 3 panel display unit featuring a 15 inch multi-function display with 10 inch primary flight displays on each side. The G1000 system will replace an entire avionics package in a King Air, which due to its advanced technology will increase a useful load by an average of 250 pounds.
“Garmin has been a great industry partner throughout the process,” said Mark Wilken, Elliott Aviation’s Director of Avionics Sales. “The King Air G1000 retrofit program is quickly becoming the standard that all other avionics programs are measured by. We’re proud of our teams in Moline and Des Moines that have made this program such a success.”
Elliott Aviation offers a 15-day guaranteed downtime for all King Air G1000 retrofits, the shortest in the industry.
