Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

I look forward to hearing about progress on the meeting and any new developments. A concern that I had expressed, namely Garmin's outright refusal to take in GIA63W LRUs that I had purchased on the used market, and for which I was perfectly willing to pay Garmin to bench test and make any required r...

It was ultimately determined that while the DA20, in which an instructor and student were killed,...

KAP140 / WAAS Navigator

Thanks for that info. The “Outbox” is really an “Unread” box.
