Diamond introduces new Garmin G1000 NXi Flight Deck

Austrian aircraft manufacturer Diamond Aircraft Industries introduces the next generation Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck to its piston product line, including the twin-engine DA62 and DA42-VI/DA42 NG and the single-engine DA40 NG.



Diamond’s DA62, DA42-VI/DA42 NG and the single-engined DA40 NG are going to be equipped with the next generation Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck.

“We are excited to present the all-new Garmin G1000 NXi to our state-of-the art piston aircraft. In 2001, we were the first OEM to commit to Garmin’s then top-secret fully integrated G1000, selected as an integral key part of the DA42 TWINSTAR and we are happy to offer our customers the latest in avionics yet again,” says Christian Dries, CEO and Owner Diamond Aircraft Austria.

Many improvements

Garmin NXi uses the same basic user interface of the G1000 boasting a number of big improvements further reducing pilot workload and enhancing the flight experience. Features include, amongst others:

• modernized graphics
• more powerful processors for faster and smoother map rendering
• new LED back-lighting
• new digital moving maps for both IFR and VFR flying

Retrofits for DA62, DA42 NG/DA42-VI and DA40 NG will be available. More information will be provided at a later date.
