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.
