October 15, 2019

Airspeed Aviation Ltd, based at Derby Airfield, is very pleased to announce that it has recently been appointed a Garmin Sales & Service Centre. This honour is based on many years of avionics installation experience and comes at the same time as moving into a new purpose built aircraft maintenance facility at our home base Derby Airfield.

David Jones, Chief Engineer of Airspeed, ‘We are delighted to be associated with Garmin and their large range of premier avionics systems, and we look forward to be able to offer our customers, both old & new, the complete range of Garmin Aviation products’.

Airspeed Aviation is one of the longest standing aircraft maintenance companies, having been continuously CAA approved for over 35 years, and is able to offer a wide range of aircraft maintenance services, including routine maintenance, avionics installation & service, engine & component overhauls, together with specialties in British classic aircraft and retractable Cessnas.

The new 10000sqft hangar facility enables Airspeed to be more efficient and be able to handle more aircraft at once.

Garmin has gained EASA approval for its GFC500 Digital autopilot which works with its very popular G5 EFIS system, and is available for a range of Cessnas, Pipers, Grummans, Mooneys & Beech aircraft. Airspeed has already installed several of these systems and owners are very impressed with its capability & performance.

Garmin also has approvals for full EFIS systems, approved to replace the original primary flight & engine instruments, with the G500TXi aimed at the certified GA market. Coming soon is the certified version of the G3X Touch EFIS system which has already gained FAA STC status with EASA certification in progress.

Also now available is the GPS175, GNC355A & GNX375 range of IFR certified GPS systems, with integral additional functions. The GNX375 contains an ADS-B In & Out transponder and will display ADS-B transmitting traffic on its own display, as well as any compatible display devices. The GNC355A contains a 8.33Khz Com.

Airspeed Aviation holds EASA Subpart F & G approval, as well as CAA approvals covering virtually all GA aircraft types. It owns and operates Derby Airfield, home of the Derby Aero Club which offers a range of flying training services – all in a friendly family environment.
