G5 DG/HSI Indicator Primary EFIS w/ GAD 29 Certified
The G5 electronic flight instrument delivers exceptional performance, reliability and ease of installation as a drop-in replacement for primary attitude and/or directional gyros in type-certificated fixed-wing aircraft. Providing an economical upgrade path via a comprehensive approved model list (AML), the compact and cost-effective G5 is bringing modern “glass cockpit” reference to thousands of aircraft that would otherwise depend on older, vacuum-driven equipment.
Replace a Legacy DG with an Affordable, Modern Glass Solution
The G5 electronic flight instrument will be approved for installation in place of the aircraft’s existing DG/HSI via a Garmin-held STC for hundreds of certificated fixed-wing aircraft models. Utilizing the new GMU 11 magnetometer, the G5 electronic flight instrument displays magnetic heading. A dedicated rotary knob allows pilots to easily select and adjust course and make heading bug selections. Suitable for installation in place of a standard 3-1/8” (79 millimeters) flight instrument, the G5 measures 3” (76 millimeters) in depth with the back-up battery so it can easily be integrated into a wide range of aircraft. The G5 electronic flight instrument is also approved for flight under VFR and IFR conditions, offering an economical upgrade for thousands of aircraft owners. Please note that the G5 for Certificated Aircraft AML STC does not include support for autopilot interfaces.
Connect a GPS Navigator for HSI Functionality
When paired with the GTN™ 650/750, GNS™ 430W/530W or non-WAAS GNS 430/530 navigators via the GAD™ 29 (pictured right) and GMU 11, the G5 will be approved as a primary source to display vertical and lateral GPS/VOR/LOC course deviation when available as well as groundspeed and distance to the next waypoint. In a G5 configuration paired with the GNC® 255 or SL 30 Nav/Comm radio via the GMU 11, the G5 will be approved as a primary source to display lateral and vertical course deviation when available. Additionally, a single magnetometer is capable of supplying magnetic heading information to 2 G5 electronic flight instruments simultaneously.
Dual G5 Installation Options Offer Added Redundancy
The G5 electronic flight instrument offers a wide range of flexible panel configuration options along with the reliability associated with a modern electronic flight instrument. Up to 2 G5 displays can be incorporated into a single aircraft panel in several approved combinations, including the attitude, DG/HSI or turn coordinator positions. In dual installations, a secondary G5 can revert to display attitude information in the unlikely event of a failure in the primary attitude indicator position. A pilot-selectable menu on the G5 DG/HSI enables the manual selection and interchange between the attitude indicator and DG/HSI display. Each G5 for certificated aircraft includes a 4-hour back-up battery for use in the event of an aircraft electrical system failure. In dual G5 configurations, customers receive dual ADAHRS and dual back-up batteries, offering safety-enhancing redundancy.
