Provided Updated Information On 7,800 Airports
Garmin will begin offering AC-U-KWIK Airport Directory data for its glass flight decks, the company announced Tuesday. “Pilots around the world depend on the AC-U-KWIK directories for up-to-date information on unfamiliar airports," said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. "The electronic extension of this data integrated right into Garmin flight decks adds a valuable resource that will take operators another step closer to a paperless cockpit.”
The AC-U-KWIK data contains a directory of more than 7,800 airports globally, and contains hard-to-find information for pre-flight planning in North America, Europe, Asia, Central America, the Caribbean, South America, Africa and Australia. Users have detailed information at their fingertips – information like FBOs and handlers, fuel providers, customs information, ground transportation, charter companies, catering services and more.
AC-U-KWIK is available as an option for the G500, G600, G500H, G950, G900x, G3X and G300 flight display systems, as well as the G1000, G1000H, G2000, G3000 and G5000 integrated flight decks. Regional AC-U-KWIK data is available from flyGarmin.com for $49.95 for a single update and $195 for an annual subscription. Worldwide coverage is available for $74.95 for a single update and $299 for an annual subscription.
