Southeast Aerospace has been granted an FAA PMA to manufacture and distribute complex harnesses required for Garmin G5000 installations.
The Garmin G5000 is an advanced flight deck featuring three wide high-resolution displays with an integrated engine indicating and crew alerting system. With full WAAS FMS integration and a dual channel digital control system, the system provides the latest in satellite based navigation capabilities and digital flight management tools.
Cost and time was the leading factor in achieving PMA for the G5000 harness kit. Southeast Aerospace has been a leader in fabricating harnesses that meet or exceed OEM standards and save significant manpower for avionics shops. Luke Gomoll, aircraft modification sales representative, states: “For some avionics shops, creating their own harnesses could take up to 450 man hours, adding significant time and cost to the overall installation.”
Harnesses for the G5000 are an intricate component of the installation for Citation 560XL/XLS or the Beechjet 400A. Due to the complexity of the harness, every harness is tested using automated harness test equipment. Each wire is laser marked and connectors are tagged to facilitate straightforward installation. G5000 harness kits are now available for sale.
