Garmin G5 Electronic Flight Instrument Certified
Primary Attitude Indicator For Certified Aircraft
Garmin is pleased to announce the FAA approval of the G5 electronic flight instrument in type certificated fixed-wing general aviation aircraft. Installation approval is accomplished via supplemental type certificate (STC) with a comprehensive approved model list (AML) containing 562 aircraft models. The compact and cost-effective G5 delivers exceptional performance and reliability as a standalone primary source for aircraft attitude or turn coordination information while also displaying secondary information such as airspeed, altitude and more. Availability of this STC is representative of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) initiative to encourage and permit specific enhancements to aircraft in an effort to improve pilot situational awareness among the existing general aviation fleet.
- Replaces traditional electromechanical attitude indicator or turn coordinator
- Integrates with aircraft’s existing pitot/static system
- Offers bright, sunlight-readable 3.5-inch (88.9 mm) LCD color display
- Sized to fit standard 3-1/8 inch (79.4 mm) instrument cutout
- Includes a 4-hour back-up battery with battery status indicator
Innovative Technology for GA Aircraft
In place of a primary attitude indicator or turn coordinator. The G5 electronic flight instrument is approved for installation — via a Garmin-held STC — for hundreds of certificated fixed-wing aircraft models. The G5 is an economical upgrade path for thousands of owners seeking an electrically driven attitude indicator with greater dependability and internal redundancy over vacuum-driven attitude flight instruments.

Boasting a bright, 3.5-inch sunlight-readable LCD display, the G5 is approved as a primary source for aircraft attitude information. Plus, it serves as a secondary source for altitude, airspeed and vertical speed — all in a single instrument. The G5 integrates with the aircraft’s existing pitot/static system and displays attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, slip/skid, turn rate, ground track, configurable V-speed references, barometric setting and selected altitude. The G5 provides visual alerts upon arriving at the pre-selected altitude. Built-in GPS provides GPS-based track and groundspeed information. the G5 has a dedicated rotary knob allows for easy adjustments to altitude bugs and barometric pressure settings.
Installed in a standard 3-1/8 inch (79.4 mm) instrument hole, G5 measures 3 inches in depth and includes a back-up battery so it easily integrates into a wide range of aircraft. Installation is further simplified as G5 only needs power, ground, pitot/static and GPS inputs so it also integrates with the aircraft’s existing systems. For aircraft without a compatible GPS position input, an optional GPS antenna is available. As part of the STC, G5 includes a 4-hour back-up battery, and pilots can easily reference battery status in the upper left-hand corner of the display.
