GA goes Loopy for our G3000 touchscreen glass cockpit

Aviation magazine Loop flew straight over to our Totton headquarters at the promise of an exclusive airing of our new G3000 glass cockpit. Fresh from the launch at last month’s EBACE show in Geneva, it’s the first-ever touchscreen flight deck for light turbine aircraft.


In the latest episode of the Loop Show, we watch as the presenter takes a tour of our new digital avionics suite with Garmin aviation expert Alistair Ingason before jumping at the chance to test out its precision, fingertip navigation.

Its touchscreen technology has been expressly designed to streamline the user experience, menu structures and information display, all presented on a sleek and bright 14.1-inch diagonal screen.


Describing its operation as: “Very Apple iPhone-ish,” the presenter likens it to using a touchscreen computer and even puts out a plea to Honda to get in touch when they’re ready. He concludes: “It’s all about the touchscreen keyboard, which makes the process of navigating your way round the whole system easier to learn.”

The system includes a high-resolution glass touchscreen controller, crisp MFD screen and primary flight display in a truly integrated flight deck.


HondaJet is on course to fit the Garmin G3000 from 2012 and PiperJet has also confirmed plans to install the touchscreen glass cockpit.
