The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) annual convention and exhibition returns to Orlando, Florida, October 16-18—bringing together over 25,000 industry professionals at the third largest tradeshow in the United States. Our aviation team will be on site representing our latest avionics, everything from ADS-B solutions to full integrated flight decks.
This year, we’ll be showcasing our wide range of ADS-B solutions for business aircraft—did you know we’ve fielded more ADS-B solutions than any other brand in the industry? We’ve designed all-inclusive packages such as our GTX 3000 Mode S Extended Squitter transponder paired with our GDL 88 ADS-B datalink. These solutions are engineered to provide seamless integration between existing equipment such as TCAS systems, transponder control heads or radio management units to minimize cockpit modifications and streamline the installation process.
Be sure to check out our latest integrated flight deck upgrades, including G5000 and G1000 NXi. We are continuing to field G5000 for Beechjet upgrades around the globe, and the G5000 retrofit program for Cessna Citation Excel/XLS is making great flight test progress – we’ll have an example on static display. G1000 NXi continues to be a staple upgrade for the vast fleet of King Air aircraft and TBM 850/900, and now, Cessna Citation Mustang and Phenom 100/300 programs are nearing completion. Attendees can also get a look at our TXi series of touchscreen flight displays, including a G700 TXi-equipped Cessna Citation II on static display, plus our GHD 2100 Head-Up Display for business aircraft.
For the first time at NBAA 2018, we are hosting avionics training courses at the convention. On Wednesday, October 17, from 9am-11am and 2pm-4pm, attendees can learn about advanced features within Garmin integrated flight decks. Learn Climb, Cruise, and Descent VNAV operational techniques through a scenario-based profile. These seminars will also cover weather radar fundamentals while exploring the operation and features of the Garmin GWX Radar series. Courses will take place in meeting room N320A; walk-ins are welcome or register here.
Visit us in booth 2695 in the North/South Hall and check out static aircraft on display featuring a Cessna Citation 560 XLS featuring G5000 and a Cessna Citation II 550 featuring dual G700 TXi flight displays and dual GTN 750 touchscreen navigators at the Orlando Executive Airport.
