Diamond Aircraft (Booth No. MD-023B) is introducing a new version of its DA40 piston single–the XLT–with an improved, “premium” interior this week at the Sun ’n Fun Fly-in in Lakeland, Fla. The new XLT features several detail enhancements, including molded seat patterns with integrated Diamond embossed padded headrests and improved lumbar contour in both the front and rear seats. All seats are covered with “infrared controlled technology” leather that reflects IR rays in direct sunlight and maintains 20 degree C lower surface temperature than traditional leathers.

After Diamond Aircraft announced that the synthetic-vision technology (SVT) upgrade for the DA40 piston single would be priced at $9,995, pilots of single-engine Cessna models started asking how much they would pay for the Garmin G1000 enhancement. The surprising answer is zero dollars for a limited time in the 182 Skylane.

There’s a lot to like about Garmin’s synthetic-vision technology (SVT) upgrade for the G1000 avionics system, starting with a price that should attract plenty of buyers.

Garmin announced yesterday that it has received FAA supplemental type certification for a synthetic-vision system it is incorporating into the G1000 cockpit. Called SVT (synthetic vision technology), the upgrade uses GPS-derived aircraft position and internal topographical databases to create 3-D images on the G1000’s large XGA displays.
