Certified: Garmin G1000 in Tiger AG-5B

Tiger Aircraft LLC displayed its newest enhancement, an FAA-certified Garmin G1000 Advanced Integrated Avionics System, in its AG-5B Tiger airplane at Oshkosh 2005.

“The FAA certification of this advanced avionics system is the result of a lot of coordination and teamwork between Tiger, Garmin, and the FAA New York Aircraft Certification Office” stated Gene Criss, President of Tiger Aircraft LLC. “We are pleased to offer this integrated system that will enhance safety and provide additional information to pilots in the Tiger’s luxurious full-leather standard interior.”

The twin-screen system features 10.4-inch glass displays for the PFD and MFD, both of which include 1024 x 768 resolution and wide-angle viewing, even in bright sunlight. Covering the navigation functions, the system is WAAS-capable; it contains IFR GPS; and it has VHF/ILS with VHF output of 16 watts. There is a built-in attitude and heading reference system (AHRS), traffic information service (TIS), and terrain proximity alerting and a Mode S transponder. Crisp digital audio comes courtesy of the GIA 63 dual integrated radio system that runs through the GMA 1347 digital audio control panel.

S-TEC’s System 30 autopilot (with altitude hold) and available GPSS further ease the pilot’s workload. Additional options include Infotainment and weather information via the Garmin GDL 69A with XM radio and satellite weather along with display of the WX-500 Stormscope information on the MFD.

To keep track of the AG-5B Tiger’s 180 horsepower Lycoming, the MFD can show current, trend, or maximum levels on important powerplant parameters. Fuel quantity and pressure information is also displayed with warning annunciations for any “out-of-range” indications.

“Ease of operation and enhanced information systems help pilots with navigation, weather, terrain, communication, and situational awareness,” said Mat Goodman, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing.

The Garmin G1000 system is designed for long life: it is easily maintainable, repairable and upgradeable due to its rack design with line-replaceable unit (LRU) convenience. A full compliment of back-up flight information gauges, including full-size airspeed, artificial horizon and altimeter are prominently located in the center of the instrument panel.

“Keeping track of navigation and engine monitoring is a great aid to the pilot,” Goodman noted, “and it thus gives our pilots more time to look outside the cockpit, to enjoy the flying experience that has made the Tiger famous.”

The upgraded Tiger, featuring the G1000 panel and many standard items usually found on other airplanes’ option lists, carries a price of $274,500. Customers’ aircraft are currently on the production line with deliveries commencing in August, 2005.
