Honda Aircraft Company's new Advanced Performance Modification Group (APMG) has engineered a performance package that offers shorter take-off field length, increased maximum take-off weight and more mission capabilities. It also features a number of Garmin G3000 avionics software updates including, but not limited to, advanced integrated Take Off & Landing calculations, increased connectivity with Flight Stream 510 compatibility and an enhanced electronic checklist.

The purpose of the APMG is to implement new features on original aircraft for the benefit of customers around the world.”
