The G5 electronic flight instrument for experimental amateur-built (EAB) and light sport aircraft is here. The compact and cost-effective G5 delivers exceptional performance and reliability, serving as either a backup instrument to G3X™ or other EFIS systems or as a standalone primary flight display, with optional autopilot mode annunciation. Boasting a bright, 3.5-inch sunlight-readable liquid crystal display (LCD) with built-in GPS, G5 displays attitude, ground track, altitude, airspeed, groundspeed, vertical speed, slip/skid, course (lateral) deviation, vertical deviation and incorporates a dedicated HSI page. Even more capabilities are available when integrated with G3X glass flight displays. Additionally, the G5 can serve as part of a highly capable standalone autopilot solution when paired with compatible autopilot mode controllers and autopilot servos.(primary or backup)
Further expanding the utility of a standard backup display, the G5 electronic flight instrument can be paired with the GMC 307 or GMC 305 autopilot mode controllers and GSA 28 autopilot servos to serve as a standalone autopilot solution, delivering a simple and cost-effective avionics suite. When paired with these systems, G5 displays autopilot mode annunciation alongside primary flight instrumentation. Additionally, if paired with a Garmin portable such as the aera® 660 or aera 796/795, the portable can easily be connected via the serial port on the G5 to allow the autopilot to couple laterally to a flight plan and vertically to a VNAV descent profile. With or without a G3X display, the G5 retains the capability to provide backup or standalone autopilot functionality, including the ability to fly coupled GPS approaches when paired with a compatible IFR navigator. Additional autopilot modes are selectable from the GMC 307 and GMC 305, including heading, pitch, roll, altitude hold, vertical speed hold and airspeed hold. Additionally, Level Mode is supported, which engages the autopilot to bring the aircraft to level flight.
