Police praise Summit's top flight display installation
The latest in glass cockpit instrumentation, the G500H TXi brings increased levels of reliability, adaptability and affordability to helicopters. Maryland's Prince George's County Police Department upgraded its MD 520Ns.
For mission readiness, the G500H TXi is equipped with a five-colour helicopter terrain awareness and warning system.

Maryland's Prince George's County Police Department recently contracted Summit Aviation to install Garmin's G500H TXi flight display system on two of its MD 520N helicopters. Summit, located in Middletown, Delaware, was awarded the STC for the installation of the G500H TXi on MDHI 500N series aircraft.

The latest in electronic glass cockpit instrumentation, the G500H TXi brings increased levels of reliability, adaptability and affordability to helicopter operations. Available in both portrait and landscape options, the system provides bright, crisp touch-screen displays. It allows pilots to use familiar knobs and/or touch-screen inputs to quickly access the functions, screen views and other flight information that pilots want to see most prominently.

“We are excited to continue in our support of aviation law enforcement,” says director of sales and marketing for Summit Aviation John Gonsalves. “The Garmin G500H TXi light display system is a game-changer for the critical services our customers provide every day.”

For mission readiness, the G500H TXi is equipped with a five-colour helicopter terrain awareness and warning system (HTAWS), WireAware wire-strike avoidance technology and Garmin HSVT 3-D synthetic vision. The G500H TXi also features multiple video input options, night vision goggle compatibility and a graphical map overlay within the horizontal situation indicator for most display formats. Summit Aviation is a Garmin authorised dealer and installer.
