Garmin has received FAA and EASA approvals of additional G5 EFIS capabilities, including the installation of the G5 in place of an existing directional gyro or horizontal situational indicator in select certified fixed-wing GA aircraft
When paired with certain VHF NAV/COMMs or GPS navigators, the G5 can be considered primary for displaying magnetic heading, VOR/LOC guidance and/or GPS course guidance, as well as distance and groundspeed.
The installation of dual G5 electronic flight instruments can also eliminate the dependency on a failure-prone vacuum system in aircraft for attitude and heading information. For more details visit: garmin.com/aviation
