First Garmin G950 Twin Commander Goes to Customer

Eagle Creek Aviation Services has delivered the first Twin Commander retrofitted with the Garmin G950 electronic flight deck. The G950-equipped Commander 1000 was delivered in Miami to a Venezuelan customer.

Eagle Creek received FAA Supplemental Type Certification (STC) earlier this year for Garmin G950 installations in the model 695A Commander 1000 s/n 96000 – 96055. Other Twin Commander turboprop models are expected to be added to the STC.

The G950 is an integrated all-electronic Garmin 1000 package with the exception that it incorporates the S-TEC 2100 Digital Flight Control System (DFCS) instead of a Garmin autopilot.

The Garmin G950 integrates all primary flight, navigation, communication, terrain, traffic, and weather on a large, 12.4-inch multifunction display and two 10.4-inch primary flight displays.

In addition, all engine and system sensors and instrumentation are removed and replaced with new fuel, oil, and hydraulic system pressure transducers and new engine fuel-flow transmitters. All engine and systems information is displayed electronically on the MFD. The new components provide more data on demand than the old sensors and analog instrumentation, and eliminate 200 pounds or more of wiring and equipment.

Eagle Creek engineered and designed a Crew Alerting System (CAS) for the G950 upgrade that allows for removal of the old annunciator panel. CAS messages appear on the 950’s MFD. The G950 Commander package also is WAAS-certified, and offers optional equipment and features including Garmin’s new TCAS systems, the GWX-70 radar, ChartView, and Synthetic Vision. Owners of model 840, 980, 900, and 1000 Commanders can order optional RVSM certification and approval with their Garmin G950.

The Commander G950 program is marketed and supported by Twin Commander Aircraft and the worldwide Twin Commander Service Center network. For more information contact Eagle Creek Aviation Services or Naples Jet Center.
