Owners of Daher-Socata TBM 700 turboprops can now retrofit their panels with Garmin’s G1000 integrated flight deck. The retrofit, available for both A and B models of the TBM 700, includes two 10.4-inch PFDs and one 15-inch MFD and GFC 700 automatic flight control system. Buyers can opt for Garmin’s synthetic vision technology. The retrofit received supplemental type certification from the EASA and FAA validation of the EASA STC. The French Ministry of Defense took delivery of the first TBM 700 with the G1000 retrofit and ordered 27 of the packages.
