Banyan Air Service, based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in Florida, recently completed installing a dual Garmin 600 glass cockpit upgrade on a Pilatus PC-12. The project included a Garmin GTN-750, GTN-650, GMA-350 and dual GTX-330 transponders. The installations were performed using both Garmin and Pilatus STCs.

“The Garmin dual G600 upgrade from Pilatus has provided one of the best glass-cockpit modernization paths for legacy Pilatus PC-12s on the market today. By incorporating synthetic vision, radar display on the MFD, Taws-B and angle-of-attack display, Banyan has provided this operator with a fresh, new and modern look for the aircraft,” said Paul Rose, Banyan vice president of technical sales.

The GTN series includes new touch technology that provides a whole new level of efficiency and safety for the cockpit. This upgrade brings LPV approach capability to the cockpit at the touch of a finger. Banyan also added dual “ADS-B out”-compliant GTX-330(ES) transponders. “This Pilatus is now equipped to meet the challenging demands of ADS-B and other future mandates,” he said.
