The Challenge

The complete overhaul of a Metro III flight deck.

Our Approach

Working with our partner Perimeter Aviation, we redesigned the flight deck and engineered an effective and creative solution. Our deep knowledge of Garmin glass cockpit products helped to deliver this solution.

The Solution

This exhaustive development program included the replacement of all the avionics, flight, navigation and engine instruments. A new full Crew Alerting Stack replaced this Metro III’s troublesome and antiquated annunciator system.

Using the built-in logic from the Garmin 950 component, we rationalized the annunciations to make them context specific. Approximately 40 hours of flight-test time were required to wring out the system.

The Result

Another aging commuter aircraft gains a new lease on life. Safety is enhanced while maintenance cycles are reduced.
