Burlington, VT (PRWEB) June 24, 2010
Heritage Aviation has announced the completion of a Garmin G500H retrofit installation, one of the first in the country. The company, located at the Burlington International Airport, plans to continue expansion of their avionics modernization program to include helicopter specific upgrades.
“We are excited to have completed one of the first G500H installations at our facility,” said Heritage Aviation Director of Avionics, Bill Hanf. “We pride ourselves on providing customers with the latest advances in technology and this marks our journey into expanding our helicopter specific line of services.”
The G500H is optimized for the rotorcraft market and it builds upon the best features of the G600 and G500, which are for the fixed-wing aircraft market. It offers capabilities such as over 900 SafeTaxi® airport diagrams, optional helicopter synthetic vision technology (HSVT™), optional XM WX Satellite Weather with NEXRAD, and the option to display video from a forward looking infrared (FLIR) camera or other video sources.
The right mounted PFD screen displays attitude, airspeed, vertical speed, altitude and course/heading information, and the MFD shows detailed moving map graphics with the helicopter’s current position in relation to terrain, chart data, navaids, and flight plan routings. The G500H communicates and integrates with two other systems also installed by Heritage Aviation. It receives GPS/WAAS position data from the Garmin GNS530W and Traffic information from an Avidyne TAS600. The G500H also includes the GDU 620 display/control unit, GRS 77H AHRS, GDC 74H digital air data computer, GMU 44 tri-axial magnetometer, and GTP 59 temp probe.
