Bell is offering buyers of new civil aircraft a free one-year subscription to Garmin OnePak database bundles and the Garmin Pilot app. The offer applies to purchases of new Bell 505, 407GXi, 429, and 412EPX helicopters. It includes Database Concierge, which automatically and wirelessly transfers aviation database information to aircraft avionics using a mobile device running Garmin Pilot. “This is another step to deliver the most technologically equipped aircraft to our operators,” said Bell executive v-p of commercial business Susan Griffin.
OnePak is currently available for all North and South America-based operators. The subscription includes the Garmin helicopter navigation, frequency, basemap, airport directory, FliteCharts, IFR en route, VFR sectional, terrain/obstacles, and SafeTaxi databases and charts.
OnePak also comes with Garmin Pilot, which provides electronic flight bag features that integrate with the Garmin avionics and includes interactive maps, aviation weather, synthetic vision, documents, flight plan filing, georeferenced moving map, and FliteCharts and SafeTaxi. Aviation databases and flight plans can be wirelessly transmitted between the Garmin Pilot app and onboard avionics when the aircraft is equipped with an optional Flight Stream 510 wireless gateway.
