Garmin® Introduces FliteLevel Extended Warranty™ for G1000®
Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the
global leader in satellite navigation, announced today extended warranty
coverage for the G1000. Garmin’s FliteLevel Extended Warranty offers
complete system wide maintenance protection for everything from cockpit
displays to remote LRU’s, and is designed to give owners comprehensive
protection against unexpected product failures when their standard
two-year factory warranty expires.
“FliteLevel gives owners peace of mind and helps them avoid unscheduled
downtime, service costs and headaches,” said Matt Harrah, Garmin’s
director of aviation product support.
With various fixed price coverage plans to chose from, owners can
evaluate their needs and budget and enroll in the plan that best meets
their requirements. Plan options include those where Garmin covers local
shop labor and replacement charges, or LRU exchanges and flat-rate
factory repair fees only. FliteLevel also includes Garmin’s LRU exchange
program, which ensures a quick replacement of faulty “black box” remote
units, should one ever occur.
FliteLevel is available through OEMs and Garmin authorized service
centers, depending on the airframe manufacturer. It is supported by
Garmin’s global network of Authorized Sales and Service outlets that are
based at hundreds of worldwide locations. Service is available 24 hours
a day, seven days a week, and includes AOG emergency service. Garmin’s
FliteLevel service is fully transferable if during the warranty period
the aircraft is sold to a new owner.
