Heading Indicator (DG) & HSI For Certificated Aircraft
Replace a Legacy DG with an Affordable, Modern Glass Solution
Featuring a bright, 3.5” sunlight readable liquid crystal display (LCD), 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 (pictured left), 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 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.
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 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.
