Twin-Engine Seminoles Join Piper's G1000 Club

  1. Piper Twin-Engine Seminoles Join Piper's G1000 Club


    Piper Aircraft, Inc. has received Type Certificate (TC) approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to incorporate the Garmin G1000 avionics suite into new twin-engine Piper Seminole aircraft models for delivery beginning this year. With this latest TC, The Garmin G1000 is standard equipment on nearly all new Piper products. "The G1000's design brings enhanced levels of pilot situational awareness and simplicity to the Seminole cockpit," said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott. "The G1000-equipped Seminole provides rich flight-critical data that creates a safer flight environment."

    Garmin's G1000 is a seamlessly integrated all-glass avionics panel that makes flight information easier to scan and process. The G1000 flight deck presents flight instrumentation, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic and engine data on large-format, high-resolution displays. It replaces the G500 suite currently on Seminole aircraft. Garmin's reliable GRS77 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) provides accurate, digital output and referencing of aircraft position, rate, vector and acceleration data. The latest Garmin G1000 software on the Seminole includes Vertical Profile View and user-defined holding patterns.
