Mooney Adds Garmin Synthetic Vision

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

KERRVILLE, TX — The latest addition to Garmin’s G1000 Integrated Flight Deck, Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) has been approved for installation in Mooney Acclaims and Ovations by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Using sophisticated graphic technology, Garmin’s SVT provides a virtual depiction of terrain and water features, complete with obstacles and, in the case of aircraft equipped with Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance (TCAS) systems, airborne traffic, in 3-D perspective that gives pilots enhanced visual cues and improved situational awareness regardless of meteorological or lighting conditions.

“The availability of this kind of technology for single engine airplanes is revolutionizing general aviation,” noted Mooney Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dennis Ferguson. “Synthetic Vision, GPS/WAAS and Safe Taxi ™ are among the most important advancements in avionics technology to come along in decades. They contribute significantly to overall flight safety and efficiency and can raise the level of a pilot’s proficiency by virtue of the added capabilities they put at his or her fingertips.”

Mooney will begin installing the SVT-equipped G1000 avionics packages in production aircraft shortly. The company is also working on a package and pricing structure for aircraft owners who wish to upgrade their existing aircraft.
