Avionics Services International (ASI) has upgraded the cockpits of a Piper Meridian and a Beechcraft Debonair with new panels and avionics. On the Meridian turboprop single, ASI replaced the panel and added a quad-display Garmin G600 TXi system with a GI 275 multifunction display.
The Debonair received a new panel and dual Garmin G3X Touch displays (10.6-inch landscape and 7-inch portrait), including a four-cylinder engine indication system. ASI also installed a GFC 500 autopilot, GTN 750Xi GPS navcom, GNX 375 navigator with ADS-B, and G5 attitude indicator.
“One of the top reasons for a flight deck upgrade is weight savings,” said ASI's Ryan Busby. “We are able to remove outdated instruments and install solid-state digital systems. These also offer better reliability. Pilots and owners see an increase in operational efficiencies.”
Founded in 1988, ASI is experienced with all types of general aviation aircraft, from piston singles to business jets. The San Antonio company’s capabilities include equipment installation, repair, replacement, and diagnostics.
