Blackhawk close to tick for GI-275 on Citation series
Citation 500 series aircraft owners looking for a turnkey solution to their ageing standby instrument systems will soon be able to update with the new Garmin GI-275 electronic installation.
The cost effective STC solution is easily installed along with a provided PMA kit.

Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies (BAT) is in the final stages of completing an STC for the installation of the new Garmin GI-275 electronic standby instrument system for the Citation 500/501/550/S550/560/560XL series aircraft. The AML STC will be applicable to all serial number aircraft for these Citation models. The current standby instrument system in these aircraft has become difficult and very costly to repair. The STC provides a solution that is cost effective and easily installed along with a provided PMA kit.

The STC allows the option to use an internal lithium battery-powered GI-275 or the existing standby battery system. The fully encompassing data package includes the aircraft specific airspeed markings to assure the installation of the GI-275 is done correctly. Options for the GI-275, like synthetic vision, backup GPS antenna and heading magnetometer, can also be added at the time of installation.

“Our customers were looking for a turnkey solution to an age-old programme for the Citation 500 series aircraft,” says VP of sales and marketing Conrad Theisen. “We listened and developed an STC, designed by installers for installers, at a low-cost solution.”

The STC and PMA kit will be made available to purchase through the Garmin dealer network or at Blackhawk Aerospace Technologies in Columbia, Missouri.
