The G1000 is Garmin’s most advanced avionics suite, characterized by a seamlessly integrated all-glass panel that provides pilots with critical flight information in a format that is easily scanned and processed — a cutting edge design that delivers superior levels of situational awareness and safety to the cockpit.
Replacing the G500 suite found on current Seminole and Archer aircraft, the G1000 provides flight instrumentation, navigation, traffic, terrain, weather and engine data -- all optimally presented on large-format, high-resolution displays.
The G1000 incorporates Garmin’s powerful GRS77 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) in place of traditional mechanical gyroscopic flight instruments, delivering accurate digital output and referencing of aircraft position, vector, rate and acceleration data – with outstanding reliability.
Said Piper President and CEO Simon Caldecott, “Building on the system’s success in our M-Class aircraft, the G1000 will put a wealth of flight-critical data at the finger tips of Seminole and Archer pilots.”
Caldecott added Piper is the only airplane manufacturer to offer proven durable all metal single and twin-engine training aircraft.
Piper’s piston-single powered Archer is known for its stability and ease of use that make it an ideal first aircraft. As a training aircraft, the Archer delivers everything a new student needs to learn to fly – safely and comfortably. Fully IFR equipped, new pilots can also rely on the Archer for gaining flying experience and obtaining an instrument rating. And for flight schools, the Archer offers an outstanding classroom-in-the-sky, providing just the right combination of simple operation and high technology.
Piper’s twin-engine piston powered Seminole is a trusted, in-demand trainer with hundreds of thousands of flight hours logged and a twenty-year track record of reliability and performance. Admired as a great platform to teach advanced flight maneuvers, the Seminole features two powerful Lycoming L/O-360-A1H6 engines, each generating 180 hp and delivering 162KTAS (300km/h) at 75% power.
The Seminole seats four and is equipped with ThermaCool air conditioning. And with its 15,000 foot service ceiling and 700n nautical mile range, the Seminole is also often found serving the needs of business and private recreational flyers alike.
The commonality of the flight deck, parts and maintenance of Piper’s single and twin-engine training aircraft is an added benefit to both private owners and flight schools alike. And with the G1000 now in common with Archer and Seminole in addition to Piper’s industry-leading M-Class line-up (Meridian, Mirage and Matrix models), pilots advancing from one aircraft to the next will feel instantly at home in the cockpit!
