At its annual awards ceremony, Airbus Helicopters recognized suppliers who stand out in performance, competitiveness and reliability. The On-Time Delivery award recognizes Garmin for its commitment and timeliness to deliver avionics to fulfill Airbus’s production lines and customer orders.
A suite of Garmin avionics are available as standard on the Airbus H125, including the G500H TXi flight display, GTN 650 touchscreen navigator, GNC 255 nav/comm, GMA 350c audio panel and the GTX 335R remote-mount ADS-B Out transponder. The GTN 750, GNC 255 and GTX 335R are also available as standard on the H130, while the H135/H145 feature the GTN 750 and Flight Stream 510 as standard equipment.
