Garmin G600 to be RVSM Certified on Cessna 441 Conquest II

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (Nasdaq: GRMN),
AeroMech of Everett, Washington, and Corporate Aircraft of Fresno,
California, today announced that they are working towards a Supplemental
Type Certificate (STC) for reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM)
certification for installation of the G600 in select aircraft.

The STC is expected to be completed early in 2011 and will initially be
available for new G600 installations on the Cessna 441 Conquest II with
an ARC 1000 autopilot. Once completed, Conquest II operators will be
eligible to fly RVSM flight profiles at 29,000 feet through the
aircraft’s max altitude of 35,000 feet. This will allow Conquest II
pilots to gain fuel savings, reduce their vertical separation from 2,000
feet to 1,000 feet required for RVSM altitudes, and increase airspace

“As the recognized worldwide leader in RVSM certifications, we were
excited for the opportunity to team with Garmin on the Cessna 441 and
bring to market an RVSM solution that delivers tangible flat panel
benefits for the same price as a conventional altimeter-only RVSM
solution,” said Dave Doucette, AeroMech vice president.

“Cessna 441 owners and operators would rather operate in RVSM airspace
to realize the full design capability of their aircraft. The benefits
provided include greater range and endurance, saving up to 26 percent in
fuel burn at the most efficient altitudes and having the ability to fly
above most weather systems resulting in far fewer turbulent encounters.
It’s a great solution that we’re proud to be a part of and a winning
combination for aircraft owners,” said Pete Tsaris, Corporate Aircraft’s
general manager.

The G600 is a certified avionics system designed specifically for FAR
Part 23 Class I, II or III aircraft and is ideal for those wanting to
transform their panel from gauges to glass. It shows critical flight
data on two six and a half inch diagonal flat-panel displays. These
screens are mounted side by side in a single bezel that fits neatly into
the “six pack” slot of the instrument panel. The G600’s PFD shows
attitude, airspeed, climb rate, altitude and course/heading information
over a virtual terrain image with SVT, and the MFD displays detailed
moving-map graphics of the aircraft’s current position in relation to
ground features, chart data, navaids, flight plan routings and more.

“Many G600 operators are flying high-performance aircraft that can
operate between 29,000 and 41,000 feet and they need the flexibility
that comes with RVSM,” said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s vice president of
marketing. ”The RVSM certification for the Conquest II with G600 will
open the gateway for these aircraft to fly behind state-of-the-art
flight displays and simultaneously operate their aircraft at these more
efficient altitudes”

Installations of RVSM-compliant G600 avionics must take place at a
Garmin authorized dealer. G600’s that are certified with RVSM will
include the GDC 74B air data computer, altitude pre-select, and other
required hardware, and pricing will begin at approximately $80,000.
