Garmin will offer its customers opportunities to learn about its navigational products with seminars and a tour of manufacturing facilities when the company opens the doors of its Olathe, Kansas, headquarters for the first Garmin Aviation Open House on June 11. A second event will be held June 25 at Garmin’s Salem, Oregon, facility.
The Garmin Aviation Open House in Olathe is tentatively scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. on June 11 in the Garmin lobby for a brief mixer and a welcome session. Tours of the flight simulator lab, Garmin’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, and its product reliability lab will follow at 4:30 p.m.
At 5:30 p.m., four 15-minute educational sessions will address Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), the GTN 650/750 touchscreen series, the Garmin Pilot app, and the G3X Touch display. The open house will conclude with prize drawings at 6:30 p.m.
Garmin is located four miles west of Johnson County Executive Airport. A shuttle will be available to transport guests between the airport and Garmin headquarters.
Guests who will arrive via aircraft should park at KCAC Aviation, which has offered a $0.25-per-gallon discount on fuel to anyone who flies in for the event. Please notify the line staff when placing your fuel order.
