INDIANAPOLIS -- Eagle Creek Aviation Services, a leading provider of aircraft services and aircraft sales, announced today that it will be installing the new Garmin G1000 panel in a privately owned Twin Commander 900 based in New Jersey. The installation includes RVSM certification.
The Garmin G1000 is an all-electronic glass panel avionics display. It integrates all primary flight, navigation, communication, terrain, traffic, weather and engine instrumentation systems on a large 12.4-inch multifunction display and two 10.4-inch primary flight displays.
Eagle Creek Aviation recently displayed the Garmin G1000 at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh show July 29-Aug. 4. The installation package was purchased by client Neil Rosoff at the show. Rosoff also recently purchased a Twin Commander 900 from Eagle Creek Aviation.
The Garmin G1000 Twin Commander displays engine data on the MFD, providing a clean, integrated look. These new components provide more data on demand and eliminate up to 350 pounds of wiring and equipment. This total panel transformation also includes all new fuel, oil and hydraulic system pressure transducers and new engine fuel flow transmitters.
"I was moving out of a single engine turboprop airplane with the G1000 panel and wanted a plane with more range and current technology in avionics," Rosoff said. "Once I'd decided to purchase the Twin Commander 900, I wanted to be sure it also had the G1000 system. I particularly like the G1000's map display, which I find very easy to use."
Eagle Creek will begin installing the G1000 in August 2013. It is the company's third G1000 installation. The company also expects to receive its Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA in the next few months.
"We are excited to be working on another G1000 upgrade for one of our Twin Commander clients," said Eagle Creek CEO Matt Hagans. "It represents a valuable and beneficial investment in what continues to be one of the greatest owner-flown aircraft ever made."
