Southeast Aerospace receives FAA certification for the Garmin GI 275
It is designed to fit the common flight instrument size for simplified installation
Aerospace solutions company Southeast Aerospace (SEA) has announced that it has received a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) number ST01985WI for installation of the Garmin GI 275 3.125-inch round display electronic flight instrument in Part 25 aircraft on an approved model list as an Electronic Standby Instrument (ESI).
SEA worked with Garmin and Peregrine to develop an easy to install solution that allows for cost-effective replacements of mechanical and electronic standby instruments in Part 25 aircraft. Using the ESI version of the Garmin GI 275 electronic flight instrument, the GI 275 ESI AML STC offers an all-in-one option to replace existing expensive ESIs and mechanical standby instruments.
The GI 275 is intentionally designed to take advantage of the common 3.125-inch flight instrument size, reducing installation time and preserving the existing aircraft panel. SEA has designed, manufactured and PMA’d a 3-ATI to 3.125-inch adapter plate to simplify the installation further.
Carl Wolf, Garmin Vice President of Aviation Sales and Marketing, said: “The GI 275 redefines the capabilities of a standby flight display and will offer operators a modern and cost-effective replacement solution to avoid the high repair costs and ongoing obsolescence associated with legacy standby systems on these aircraft.”
Luke Gomoll, SEA Aircraft Modifications Sales Representative, added: “The Garmin GI 275 ESI elevates the cockpit. Display clarity, brightness, data presentation, and data accuracy are all leveled up massively with the GI 275 compared to legacy electronic standby instruments.”
