Recently certified as an ADS-B position source for the Embraer E135/E145 and Legacy 600/650
We’re excited to announce the availability of the GPS 3000, a high-integrity GPS position sensor that seamlessly interfaces to existing avionics to help meet Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out requirements. Also, targeting the air transport and defense markets, the GPS 3000 is designed as a WAAS/SBAS position source for select Flight Management Systems (FMS). Aircraft that are eligible to utilize the GPS 3000 as an ADS-B position source include the Embraer E135/E145 and the Legacy 600/650. Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for the GPS 3000 in these aircraft is currently available from FTI Engineering, in cooperation with Atlas Air Service in Germany, and can be installed throughout the entire Garmin dealer network.
“Garmin continues to lead the industry with the most fielded ADS-B solutions that span all segments of aviation, including a wide-range of commercial, defense, regional and business aircraft,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “We are thrilled to provide these aircraft with a solution that is cost-effective and is an easy to install alternative to the existing avionics manufacturer’s service bulletin.”
A rugged, standalone and certified Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS)/Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) GPS, the GPS 3000 meets DO-160 and DO-178B standards and is designed specifically for the harsh environmental conditions encountered by commercial aircraft. This compact and remote-mount solution utilizes enhanced WAAS/SBAS GPS satellite signals to provide precise position data through a standard interface. It also meets applicable high-integrity ADS-B position source standards, including TSO-C145d Class 3.
The GPS 3000 is also designed to interface with select FMS to support GPS guidance throughout terminal, enroute and approach navigation1. When configured appropriately, the GPS 3000 is capable of providing position information to an existing FMS to meet requirements for Required Navigation Performance (RNP) and can support GPS-based vertical approach navigation, such as Localizer Performance with Vertical (LPV) approach guidance.
European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) STC of the GPS 3000 in the Embraer E135/E145 and Legacy 600/650 is available from FTI Engineering, in cooperation with Atlas Air Service, as well as Garmin dealers. FAA validation of the STC is pending.

We’ve incorporated new enhancements and features within FltLogic, a comprehensive scheduling program that integrates with FltPlan.com. New to FltLogic, an enhanced reporting tool allows customers to apply filters and develop reports that can be sorted by date, aircraft, passenger and more. Also new for FuelerLinx subscribers, FltLogic can now help pilots identify the best FBO for fuel at the departure and destination airports with the display of contract fuel pricing. Additionally, company logos can also be uploaded and displayed on all emailed itineraries. These features are available immediately within the web-based FltLogic scheduling program.
FltLogic incorporates enhanced reporting that organizes and categorizes flight department activities in a customizable, easy-to-read report. For example, users have the option to develop a yearly flight report for a specific pilot within the department, detailing total and average hours flown, number of legs or total distance. Aircraft reports can also be generated within FltLogic, displaying detailed information like hours, distance and legs flown, fuel usage and more and sorted by a user-selectable date range. Additionally, expenses can be organized within FltLogic and exported to other data sources so operating costs and invoicing are easier to manage. This new, enhanced reporting tool within FltLogic furthers flight department efficiencies and gives customers greater insight into pilot, aircraft and passenger activities.
The initial phase of the new contract fuel pricing feature within FltLogic helps customers more easily identify the best fuel prices at the departure and destination airports. With a FuelerLinx subscription, customers can log into FltLogic to view fuel pricing from over 70 contract fuel providers and compare fuel prices between Fixed Based Operators (FBO’s). FltLogic then displays the FBO with the best fuel price based on the departure and destination airports specified, offering additional cost savings.
FltLogic has enhanced the available reporting functions by adding departmental breakdowns and the ability to export information in .csv format. For example, a company can view and export a yearly flight report for a specific pilot within the department, detailing total and average hours flown, number of legs or total distance. Aircraft reports can also be generated within FltLogic, displaying detailed information like hours, distance and legs flown, fuel usage and more and sorted by a user-selectable date range. Additionally, expenses can be organized within FltLogic and exported to other data sources so operating costs and invoicing are easier to manage. This new, enhanced reporting tool within FltLogic furthers flight department efficiencies and gives customers greater insight into pilot, aircraft and passenger activities.
FltPlan.com is a free website that offers electronic flight planning, flight plan filing and many premium services to enhance any flight department. FltLogic is the only scheduling program integrated directly with a flight planning and filing website. FltLogic provides complete trip coverage, including trip requests, trip creation and post-flight reporting.
These new FltLogic software enhancements are available immediately. New customers and flight departments can learn more or schedule a FltLogic demonstration by contacting support@FltLogic.com or 203-262-8500. Visit the FltPlan.com exhibit at the Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference (SDC2019) Jan. 29 – Feb 1, 2019 in San Antonio, TX. for additional information, or visit www.fltplan.com or www.fltlogic.com.
