Garmin announces technical and equipment support

The RAF Centenary Flight of the Navigator Team are delighted to announce the confirmation of technical and equipment support from Garmin. The company are the global leaders in navigation and communication technology, and the installation of their latest lightweight avionics into the RV-7 will produce an aircraft that is at the cutting-edge of long-range navigation capability. The ‘design-freeze’ for the selection of equipment is likely to occur in 2015, this will allow for utilisation of the very latest Garmin products as they are developed. Initial analysis by the FOTN Team and Garmin has provisionally selected a ‘Glass Cockpit’ comprising 2 large-screen Multi-Function/Primary Flight Displays, a certified Navigation/GPS/Communication/IFF unit, integrated auto-pilot and Satellite Communication. As the design develops, further information will be displayed here!
