JETTECH, a leader in developing affordable aftermarket aircraft solutions, announced a pending FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installing the new touchscreen Garmin G650/750 GPS/NAV/COM on Cessna Citation 500 series aircraft to include models 500, 501, 550, 551, S550 and 560.

In addition, the STC will cover the installation of the Garmin GTX 33ES transponders, remote GMA35 audio panels and the GWX 68 weather radar.

With the FAA approval, JETTECH will begin offering kits available through JETTECH approved Garmin authorized dealers. A complete documentation package is supplied to support the installation process

The pending STC, which will include WAAS approvals, will complement JETTECH’s existing STC for the Garmin G600 “Glass Panel” EFIS installation modification for the Legacy Cessna Citations.

According to Rob Irwin, founder and member/manager of JETTECH, this newest STC will offer a greater range of choices and price points for Legacy Citation owners and operators who are looking to update and upgrade their aircraft to the newest and latest glass panel technology.

“Not only is this an exciting update for these older Citations, these new Garmin instruments pack a lot of features into a relatively small space,” Irwin said. “With just a tap on the screen, pilots have access to instrumentation that would otherwise be limited due to panel space.”

Irwin noted The GMA35 unit is designed to fit securely behind the GTN 750 series, leaving more room for the large display avionics. He said that all is required is to just touch the onscreen “Audio Panel” or “Intercom” button to access those controls.

In addition to the pending STC for the Garmin G650/750 installation as well as the previously announced STC for the G600 install on Legacy Citations, JETTECH has also secured an STC for installing the Garmin G600 RVSM for the Cheyenne III, IIIA & 400LS models.
