Garmin G500H glass for R44 helicopters 18.04.2019
Garmin’s G500H glass cockpit is now an option on new Robinson R44 Raven II and Cadet helicopters.
The G500H option has previously been available only on the R66 Turbine helicopter. It is a combined Primary Flight Display and Multifunction Display (PFD/MFD) which provides flight instrumentation, moving map navigation, and situational awareness on dual screens.
Synthetic Vision Technology, giving a 3D view of terrain and obstacles ahead, is an option for the PFD, and either Garmin FliteCharts or Jeppesen Chartview instrument charts are options for the MFD.
Robinson’s R44 piston-engine helicopter now available with Garmin’s G500H glass cockpit.
The G500H system screens are contained in a newly designed instrument panel that also includes traditional instruments. A Garmin GTN 650 or 750 navigator is required with the G500H and sits just below the displays within easy reach of either pilot seat.
The list price for the G500H system is $35,700, not including the required GTN navigator.
