Southeast Aerospace (SEA) has received a supplemental type certificate (STC) from the FAA for the installation of the Garmin GI 275 on Part 25 aircraft. SEA partnered with Garmin and Peregrine to develop a solution that allows for the cost-effective replacement of mechanical and electronic flight instruments on Part 25 aircraft.
The GI 275 is designed to take advantage of the common 3.125-inch flight instrument size, reducing installation time and preserving the existing aircraft panel. SEA designed and manufactured a 3.125-inch adapter plate to further simplify installation. The adapter plate is available for purchase with the STC.
“It’s been a pleasure to collaborate with Southeast Aerospace to create this STC, which includes the Garmin GI 275 as an electronic standby instrument replacement in a variety of Part 25 aircraft,” said Garmin v-p of aviation sales and marketing Carl Wolf. “The GI 275 redefines the capabilities of a standby flight display and will offer operators a modern and cost-effective replacement solution to avoid the high repair costs and ongoing obsolescence associated with legacy standby systems on these aircraft.”
