Garmin is now offering an extended warranty that covers labor and parts for G1000 glass cockpit systems for two or three years beyond the two-year factory warranty, up to five years of total coverage that is transferable if the aircraft is sold.
The G1000 FliteLevel Service Contract is available to owners of new and used aircraft equipped with G1000 line-replaceable units (LRUs). Pricing depends on aircraft type, the number of displays installed, and integrated features such as weather radar and autopilot.
Garmin said in a news release that customers who purchase the extended service contract will receive priority shipping to expedite return to service, and service is available at Garmin Authorized Service Centers, which also handle the sales and registration. Coverage begins immediately upon registration.
The G1000 was introduced in 2004, and has been updated through the years including recent software updates for King Air installations that enable capabilities including Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) compliance, user-defined holding patterns, automatically generated search patterns for aircraft involved in search and rescue operations, and other features.
