First touchscreen flight deck airs at EBACE

Today sees the start of the 2010 European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) and the launch of the first-ever touchscreen flight deck for light turbine aircraft.

The Garmin G3000 digital avionics suite enables precision, fingertip navigation by revolutionising the interface between pilots and their electronics. Streamlining menu structures, eliminating visual clutter and replacing mechanical knobs, buttons and selector switches, pilots enjoy centralised data entry on a sleek 14.1-inch diagonal WXGA high-resolution cockpit display.

See us at the show on stand 1367 and you’ll also meet the Garmin G500H electronic helicopter flight display. Engineered for safety and reliability, this 6.5-inch LCD dual-screen provides an affordable flight solution that meets the needs of the most demanding helicopter missions.

EBACE is at the Geneva PALEXPO on 4-6 May 2010 and will attract more than 400 exhibiting companies and over 10,000 visitors from all over the world.
