Kings Avionics Completes First Retrofit Slant-Panel, GTN 750 Installation Into MD520N Helicopter



Kings Avionics Completes First Retrofit Slant-Panel, GTN 750 Installation Into MD520N Helicopter


Kings Avionics, July 11, 2014 - Salt Lake City, UT - Kings Avionics, Inc., a leader in avionics sales, installation, and service, announced today that it has completed and obtained certification on the first retrofit, slant-panel installation of the Garmin GTN 750 Navigator into an MD520N model helicopter.

Certification was obtained via field approval from the Salt Lake City Flight Standards District Office (FSDO). The installation is noteworthy since the MD520N helicopter was not included in the initial Aircraft Model List for the Garmin GTN 750.

Kings Avionics also installed a G500H dual-screen electronic flight display into the main panel that interfaces with the GTN.

“A GTN installation requires a slant panel design for optimal viewing by the pilot,” said Steve Hayden, Kings Avionics’ Chief Operating Officer. “Kings has broken new ground by retrofitting an approved slant panel kit into the MD520N, and by engineering the installation of the GTN 750.”

“We are excited to see the continued enthusiasm and acceptance of the GTN series installed in a variety of helicopters,” said Jim Alpiser, Garmin’s Director of Aviation Aftermarket Sales. “The simplicity of the GTN as a comm radio and navigator, coupled with the advanced multi-function display capabilities such as datalink weather, traffic and optional built-in HTAWS alerting with extra-high resolution topography make it a great solution for the MD520N helicopter.”

Kings Avionics has full-service Part 145 facilities in Salt Lake City, UT, St. George, UT and Henderson, NV, with remote repair capabilities available for the entire Rocky Mountain and Southwest regions. Find out more at www.kingsavionics.com, or by emailing info@kingsavionics.com.
