ZK-EBH PA-28-151 Dereks Upgrade Path
The GFC500 took no selling to Derek. He took all the options available for his aircraft – a second Garmin G5 HSI and electric pitch trim. A Garmin GTX335 was added to give ADS-B.
When Derek saw the Garmin G5, he came straight back to us. He wanted it. End of story.
Dereks panel was very basic. He approached us with a proposal to upgade his aircraft gradually. Initially this consisted of removal of outdated and poor quality Avionics, and the installation of good proven Garmin equipment. We purchased a GNS430 on his behalf and sent it to Garmin under the GNS430W Upgrade/Overhaul scheme. A backup KX125 Com/Nav, a GMA340 audio panel, a KI209A & KI203 CDI and a Tallon dual USB port were added to complete the installation.
