FAA Authorizes TSO For Garmin GDL 88 ADS-B

Also Approves Latest GTN 3.0 Software

The FAA has authorized a TSO along with AML STC approval for the Garmin GDL 88 series. The GDL 88 is the industry’s first dual-link ADS-B solution available for certified aircraft. With the AML STC, the GDL 88 is approved for installation on most Part 23 fixed-wing aircraft, and it will begin shipping immediately starting at $3,995.

Garmin has also received AML STC approval for the latest GTN 3.0 software. This new software brings expanded capabilities to the GTN series including display support for the GDL 88. It also now includes support for weather radar, worldwide connectivity, cross fill with the GNS 430W/530W series and more. This software upgrade is free for current GTN owners and will come standard on new GTN purchases.

According to Garmin's website, the GDL 88 provides a simple, rule-compliant solution for aircraft operating in the U.S. and below 18,000 feet. The GDL 88 also brings the added benefit of access to advanced traffic information and subscription free weather for aircraft flying at any altitude. The innovative dual-link capability allows the GDL 88 to receive both the 978 MHz UAT and 1090 MHz frequency bands to provide the most comprehensive level of traffic situational awareness. Advanced traffic awareness features include TargetTrend relative motion technology, which helps the pilot visualize the trend of the traffic threats as it relates to their aircraft, and SURF technology, which detects other aircraft or ground vehicles on runways and taxiways that may pose a threat while taxiing or on approach.

The company says the GTN series touchscreen avionics supports for weather radar, advanced ADS-B capabilities, worldwide connectivity, cross fill with the GNS 430W/530W series and more.
