Garmin received STC approval from EASA yesterday to install the company’s Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP) and GSR 56 Iridium datalink in G1000-equipped King Air 200/B200s. The ESP installation adds stability augmentation capabilities, nudging the controls back toward stable flight whenever pitch, roll or high-speed deviations exceed the recommended limits. Meanwhile, the GSR 56 option allows for onboard graphical weather throughout the world, as well as voice and data services.
