Garmin® and Pratt & Whitney Canada Offer King Air® Aircraft Upgrade Incentives

Substantial savings when upgrading avionics and engines simultaneously

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), and
Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC), a United Technologies Corp. company,
today announced new incentives to provide King Air® aircraft
owners and operators significant savings on the G1000®
Integrated Flight Deck and qualifying P&WC engine upgrades. The upgrade
incentives apply to a broad range of King Air aircraft models. On the
King Air 300/350 aircraft, customers will receive a free G1000
Integrated Flight Deck upgrade with the purchase of a new pair of
PT6A-60A engines via P&WC’s Fleet Enhancement exchange Program. Other
eligible engine and avionics upgrades will qualify for savings of up to
US$105,000, providing customers with high-performance technologies that
expand aircraft utility and greatly improve the capability and
reliability of their King Air aircraft.

“Pairing together the industry’s most popular engine and avionics
upgrades for the King Air provides our customers with an enticing
package that exceeds any other incentive for King Air aircraft on the
market today,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation marketing and
sales. “By incorporating a Garmin Integrated Flight Deck and upgraded
P&WC engines, King Air aircraft owners and operators will receive a
number of benefits, including enhanced reliability, added utility,
greater capability and more – all to an aircraft that is well-known and
respected among the industry for its remarkable performance attributes.”

King Air aircraft owners and operators can receive substantial savings
on upgrades offered by Garmin and P&WC. Through January 29, 2016,
customers who pursue simultaneous engine and avionics upgrades offered
by both companies may be eligible to save up to US$105,000. Furthermore,
King Air 300/350 aircraft owners and operators who elect to perform the
Fleet Enhancement Program (FEP) upgrade offered through P&WC may be
eligible for a G1000 upgrade at no cost. Customers who have pursued
either a G1000 retrofit or select P&WC PT6A engine upgrades within the
last calendar year may also be eligible for incentives.

The G1000 Integrated Flight Deck retrofit program provides pilots with
superior situational awareness tools, which support a wide range of
capabilities including coupled Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS/SBAS)
approaches. Superior flight control technology is provided by Garmin’s
integrated autopilot, offering optimized performance throughout the
aircraft’s flight envelope. LPV/APV approach capability adds more
utility to existing aircraft and is among a number of safety enhancing
benefits offered by the G1000 suite. With the G1000 upgrade, these
aircraft also receive a fully integrated, FAA/EASA rule-compliant
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out solution, so
aircraft are positioned to meet NextGen industry requirements. Factory
new zero-time avionics contribute to a total weight savings of up to 200
pounds and significantly reduce cost of ownership and operation.

“We are proud to collaborate with Garmin on this joint promotional offer
that enables our PT6A engine customer base to benefit from enhanced
value on the iconic King Air product line,” said Denis Parisien, vice
president, General Aviation at P&WC.

Pratt & Whitney Canada’s engine exchange programs covered under this new
incentive include the PT6SMARTSM Flat Rate
Engine Exchange Program, the Converter Enhancement Program (CEP) and the
Fleet Enhancement Program (FEP). Aircraft life is further extended with
zero-time factory engine overhauls through the PT6SMARTSM
program, which minimizes aircraft down time and offers a cost effective
approach to engine maintenance. Factory-new engines offered through the
CEP provide operators with performance improvements including range,
speed, fuel efficiency and more, while also offering an associated
warranty with the engine upgrade. The FEP maximizes aircraft dispatch
reliability and reduces operating and maintenance costs. Customers also
receive new life-limited components, a new factory warranty and realize
enhanced aircraft resale value associated with the FEP and CEP upgrade
