AMI gains EASA approval for G950 NXi in Beech 1900D
European operators interested in extending the operational life and capabilities of the 1900D aircraft with the G950 NXi can now contact AMI Aviation Services. The company has added an EASA STC to its approvals.

US-based AMI Aviation Services has received EASA approval of the Garmin G950 NXi next generation integrated flight deck for Beech 1900D aircraft. The G950 STC is also approved by the FAA and Transport Canada.

Designed to solve dispatch reliability and aging/obsolete avionics concerns on the 1900D fleet, the G950 NXi integrated flight deck is essentially a 'zero time' all glass cockpit and integrated avionics retrofit. It can be installed by AMI Aviation, or other qualified Garmin dealers, using a factory-built PMA kit with all new avionics, third party parts, honeycomb shelves, CNC-milled structural parts and 5,000 ft of laser marked wire. Its additional safety and situational awareness features include moving map, TAWS-A, TCAS, satellite weather, Iridium talk/text and synthetic vision.

Utilising G1000 hardware with millions of flight hours in service, the G950 NXi has been in airline and corporate shuttle operation on the 1900D fleet for more than five years with commitments from 15 operators for over 40 aircraft. Weight savings come to approximately 225 pounds. New G950 NXi installations and display upgrades all come with a two-year warranty, which is supported by Garmin's award-winning avionics product support team. An optional five-year warranty is also available.
