STC Approved: Garmin GTN 650/750 for Citation 500 Series
Broomfield, CO - JETTECH announces the issuance of an FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) for installing the new touch screen Garmin GTN 650/750 GPS/NAV/COM on Cessna Citation 500 series aircraft to include models 500, 501, 550, 551, S550 and 560.
The STC is for a fully-integrated GPS/NAV/COMM and also covers the installation of the Garmin GTX 33’s transponders, remote GMA35 audio panels, and GA35/37 antennas.
In addition, the STC includes WAAS approvals and will complement JETTECH’s existing STC for the Garmin G600 “glass panel” EFIS installation modification for the Legacy Cessna Citations
Offered as an STC’d data package through JETTECH, shipments will be begin immediately and JETTECH stands ready to support its customers through the installation process.
“The benefits of this STC’d installation are numerous for Legacy Citation owners and operators,” says Rob Irwin, founder and member/manager of JETTECH. “Not only are there greater ranges of choices and price points, pilots now have access to instrumentation that would otherwise be limited or not available due to space restrictions.”
Irwin notes the GMA35 unit is designed to fit securely behind the GTN 750 series, leaving more room for the large display avionics. He said that all is required is to just touch the onscreen “audio panel” or “intercom” button to access those controls.
The six-inch-tall, high-definition touch screen offers access to a variety of displays including terrain mapping, graphical flight planning, geo-referenced charting, traffic display and satellite weather.
In addition to the new STC for the Garmin GTN 650/750 installation, as well as the previously announced STC for the G600 install on Legacy Citations, JETTECH has also secured an STC for installing the Garmin G600 RVSM for the Cheyenne III, IIIA and 400LS models.
