Gulfstream Selects Garmin® ADS-B Out Solution for G150 Business Jet

Garmin’s Certified and Simple Solution Meets Global Airspace Requirements for Business Aircraft

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the certification of an Automatic Dependent
Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) solution for the Gulfstream G150,
bringing NextGen compliance to this versatile mid-sized business jet.
The Garmin GTX 3000 Mode S Extended Squitter (ES) remote transponder and
GDL® 88 ADS-B datalink combine to fulfill global ADS-B
requirements while meeting the stringent demands of business and
transport category aircraft. This cost-effective ADS-B upgrade meets the
immediate needs of business aircraft that have limited options to
address global airspace requirements.

“We are honored to partner with an industry leader such as Gulfstream,
to provide the G150 business jet with an all-inclusive ADS-B solution
that gives operators an immediate path to compliance,” said Carl Wolf,
Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “Garmin’s
expertise and extensive product line of certified ADS-B solutions
allowed us to work quickly with Gulfstream to bring this solution to
market. Gulfstream’s recent STC adds to Garmin’s portfolio of certified
ADS-B installations, allowing business and transport category operators
to continue operations in regions around the world where ADS-B is

The GTX 3000 and GDL 88 offer operators a seamless and integrated path
to meet the demands of air traffic modernization initiatives around the
world. Highly accurate WAAS/SBAS position information provided by the
GDL 88 is utilized by the GTX 3000 to broadcast aircraft identity, state
and intent data (DO-260B compliant) to air traffic control, while
integrating with existing equipment such as TCAS/ACAS systems and
transponder controllers. This comprehensive and adaptable suite
complements equipment already installed in the aircraft, streamlining
the installation process. Additionally, the GTX 3000 and GDL 88 offer an
enhanced level of visibility to other operators in the vicinity, which
is unique to this ADS-B Out solution. With the capability to broadcast
position information on both approved frequencies, the GTX 3000 and GDL
88 ensures visibility to all ADS-B In-equipped general aviation aircraft.

As part of Garmin’s growing ADS-B portfolio, the GTX 3000 meets current
compliance standards as a certified ADS-B Out solution when paired with
a compatible position source such as the GDL 88, allowing this cohesive
system to meet ADS-B requirements for a variety of aircraft types. With
this Garmin ADS-B solution, owners and operators satisfy global
requirements and receive the benefits of ADS-B without the need to
pursue costly Flight Management Systems (FMS) or cockpit display

Installation of the GTX 3000 and GDL 88 ADS-B suite in the Gulfstream
G150 is currently available at the Gulfstream Service Center in Dallas,
Texas. For information regarding the Garmin ADS-B solution in the
