Vulcanair, Italian maker of twin-engine aircraft, has won approval in Europe to install the Garmin G950 glass cockpit system. FAA approval is expected shortly under a joint agreement.
The avionics suite will be available for the P68C and P68R (retractable), which have a conventional nose, and the P68 Observer with a clear nose for aerial search and surveillance. The system allows the Observer series to have an IFR cockpit without losing visibility.
Vulcanair has also redesigned its cockpits for the three models by repositioning circuit breakers and moving switches to improve ergonomics and safety. Also redesigned are the ventilation and heating systems.
