Upgraded Avionics for 2021 A5s

Jan 15,2021

ICON Aircraft, which manufactures the ICON A5 Light Sport Aircraft, is offering the Garmin G3X Touch flight display as a new option on 2021 ICON A5 Limited Edition aircraft.

The G3X Touch 7-inch flight display, which will become available in early 2021, replaces the Garmin aera 796.

The new system offers advanced features and increased situational awareness while seamlessly integrating with other Garmin avionics, enabling a 2-axis autopilot as an option on the A5, according to company officials.


Our owners have put more than 20,000 total hours on their A5s, and one theme weve heard from them in addition to the incredible fun theyre having is the desire for an upgraded avionics and navigation package, said Jason Huang, president.

The Garmin G3X Touch flight display features a high-resolution screen with an infrared touch-control interface that brings all essential flight information to your fingertips. The G3X Touch provides controls for the radios, transponder, and navigation on a single display, while the Garmin GMC 507 control panel for the optional autopilot manages a variety of advanced in-flight modes that significantly decrease workload when activated, ICON officials note.

To celebrate the launch of this initiative, ICON is offering a special ownership program that provides 50% off upgraded avionics packages for orders placed by the end of February 2021 (U.S. deliveries only).

The development of next-generation avionics not only introduces new ideas and concepts, but also needs new devices, new technologies, and new development tools to support. With the rapid progress of 5G communication technology, high-performance computing simulation technology, AI technology, VR and other related technologies lead to the rapid development of avionics system, the continuous improvement of integration, intelligence and IMA has accelerated the realization of the next-generation avionics. It has become an indispensable part of all types of aircraft, and plays a very important role in ensuring the safety and reliability of large aircraft to complete relevant tasks.

In the face of the severe and complex international epidemic and the world economic situation, during the 14th Five-Year Plan, China's avionics industry will continue to take the demand of civil market as the driving force, focusing on the development requirements of avionics technology, actively carry out foreign exchanges and constantly expand the results of mutually beneficial cooperation, aiming to accelerate the development of avionics technology, and will promote the continuous improvement of independent innovation and R & D capability in domestic avionics field.

Under this background, the 10th Annual Civil Avionics International Forum will be held in the city of Shanghai on June 22nd- 23rdfocus on Aviation 14th Five-Year Plan Lay Out, Pay Attention to the Development of Avionics Industry, Improve the Capability of Independent R&D,register your interest or get in touch with Sara for more details.
