Elliott Aviation Starts 100th Garmin G1000 Installation
Elliott Aviation is installing its 100th King Air Garmin G1000 retrofit. In addition to the Garmin retrofit, the King Air B200 will receive new engines from Blackhawk, full paint, full interior, Raisbeck modifications, BLR winglets, LumaTech LED annunciator panels and Frakes exhaust.
Since the first Garmin G1000 King Air STC, Elliott Aviation has retrofitted 42 King Air 300/350s, 42 King Air 200s and 15 King Air 90s. The G1000 retrofit, which is currently available for the King Air C90A, 200/B200 and 300/350, is an integrated avionics suite that incorporates graphical weather, synthetic vision, traffic, terrain and other avoidance systems in a three-panel display unit featuring a 15-inch multifunction display with 10-inch primary flight displays on each side. The G1000 system will replace an entire avionics package in a King Air, and the weight savings will increase the useful load by an average of 250 pounds. Elliott Aviation offers a 15-day guaranteed downtime for all King Air G1000 retrofits.
