Garmin is pleased to announce that FAA STC and EASA approvals have been received for GFC 600 installation in the Cessna Grand Caravan 208B (with cargo pod), and shipments have begun. Intended for high-performance piston and turbine aircraft that have a wide range of aircraft speed and performance characteristics, GFC 600 incorporates solid-state attitude and robust self-monitoring capabilities to provide superior autopilot performance, greater reliability and safety benefits.
Garmin’s autopilot development plans continue to evolve and all completed GFC 600 certifications have received both FAA and EASA validation.
All completed GFC 500 certifications have received only FAA certification and are awaiting EASA validation at this time.
