Garmin GTN 750 for Piaggio P180 Avanti

Modernising aircraft avionics significantly improves safety. In this case, an STC for the installation of a dual Garmin GTN 750 interface, a dual Garmin GTX 33D transponder, and state-of-the-art Garmin GWX 70 weather radar, heightens situational awareness while optimising performance. The scope of this upgrade  solution includes Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) approaches, Precision-Area Navigation (P-RNAV), Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS), as well as Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out.

The RUAG P180 STC solution builds upon the aircraft's renowned reliability, further enhancing its qualities. As a Piaggio Authorised Service Centre, as well as a Garmin dealer, our EASA-approved Design Organisation (DOA) proves an unique advantage and allows our engineers to design a package tailored to the strengths of both original equipment manufacturer (OEM) systems.

And, while our customers expect time and cost-effective solutions, the RUAG team focuses on short downtimes, with aircraft availability as the ultimate goal. We streamline the process by preparing installation kits and wiring looms, in advance. Furthermore, the upgrade can be easily combined with heavy maintenance inspections, including C or D checks, or landing gear overhaul.
