EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: New Avionics and Showcase Aircraft

The 50th edition of EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh — one of the world’s greatest aviation celebrations — opens its gates to aircraft owners, pilots and fans July 22-July 28, 2019. During that week, airplanes and enthusiasts will converge to create the busiest airspace in the world. This year we’ll be highlighting many of our popular general aviation avionics — tailor-made products for every experimental homebuilder to business traveler.

Display Aircraft — “Draco,” Cessnas, Beechcraft and more!

Mike Patey’s “Draco”

We’ll be hosting a mix of certificated and experimental aircraft at our display just west of Boeing Plaza. Mike Patey and his experimental Wilga, known as “Draco,” will be at our exhibit—this STOL record-breaking, highly modified aircraft features TeamX’s G3X Touch avionics for experimentals. We’ll also be showcasing a Cessna 182 and Beechcraft A36 Bonanza equipped with G500 TXi and GTN 650/750 series avionics. Additionally, another Cessna 182 will be on hand equipped with our new G3X Touch for certificated aircraft. See these aircraft and instrument panels up close, and even talk with a few of their owners and builders at our booth.

Advanced Avionics

The ADS-B deadline is less than six months away. The closer we get to Dec. 31, 2019, the busier avionics installers will inevitably become. Our low-cost, easy-to-install GDL 82 ADS-B datalink allows you to keep your existing Mode A/C transponder. Wanting to upgrade your transponder altogether? Our GTX 335 provides simple ADS-B “Out” compliance in a transponder upgrade. The next step in our ADS-B line is the GTX 345 — an all-in-one ADS-B transponder featuring ADS-B “In” and “Out” for enhanced weather and traffic information in the cockpit. And our new GNX 375 combines an ADS-B “In” and “Out” transponder with LPV approach capability in a GPS navigator, providing more awareness and capability for an aircraft. It’s a great direct replacement for GPS 150/155, GX 50/55, as well as the KLN 89/90/94 series.

Garmin GNX 375 GPS Navigator and ADS-B “In” and “Out” transponder

Earlier this year, our TeamX experimental avionics group introduced its G3X Touch flight display to the certificated market. What had been a mainstay within the experimental community is now available for more than 500 certificated aircraft models.

Our new cost-effective solutions for both experimental and certificated aircraft, including our two new cost-effective GPS navigators: GPS 175 and GNX 375 (with ADS-B “In” and “Out” transponder), give owners an affordable route to LPV approach capability for their aircraft.

Also be sure to check out our G500/G600 TXi series touchscreen flight displays. See how these advanced avionics offer powerful PFD, MFD and EIS solutions for a number of aircraft platforms.

On-site Seminars and Pilot Training

Visitors can attend daily seminars at the exhibit that highlight our range of avionics, from how-to product demonstrations to determining which of our solutions are the best fit for your aircraft. Plus, our award-winning pilot training team will be on site at the Hilton Garden Inn on the Oshkosh airfield, providing real world, hands-on, scenario-based training for the Garmin GTN 750/650 series navigators. These one-day courses (Monday, July 22 through Friday, July 26) are designed to explain the ins and outs of flight planning and instrument procedures. Each participant will be provided with their own kiosk housing real Garmin avionics, a training syllabus for in-class and at-home use, as well as a lunch overlooking the airfield from the hotel patio. Cost for this training is $99 and seats are limited, so register today to reserve your spot! Click here to sign up.
