Helicopter Terrain Awareness Warning System (HTAWS)
Video input for FLIR or other camera display
Global connectivity options
Our award-winning G1000 flight deck is available for OEM installation on a range of rotorcraft. Featuring many of the same advanced features as its airplane counterpart, G1000H adds support for technologies specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s helicopter operators, including HSVT, HTAWS and video input capability.
Look to the Future with HSVT
HSVT adds increased situational awareness in your rotorcraft cockpit. Using sophisticated graphics modeling, the system recreates a “virtual reality” landscape on your large 10", 12" or 15" primary flight display. This enables you to clearly visualize terrain features, waterways, airport locations, runway depiction and obstacles — even in nighttime conditions.
Avoid Obstacles with HTAWS
An optional HTAWS has been engineered specifically to keep rotorcraft safely separated from hazardous terrain and minimize the chance of CFIT (Controlled Flight into Terrain). The system predicts in advance where potential hazards may lie and alerts you as you near them. A 5-color Terrain Proximity display lets your visualize how close you are to a potential threat while voice callouts audibly announce the helicopter’s height above terrain when descending below 500 feet. For low-level operations, the system even has a Reduced Protection (RP) mode that minimizes alerting while continuing to provide protection.
Satellite Weather and Communication
Keep a watchful eye on weather in the U.S. and Canada with built-in support for our GDL™ 69 satellite datalink, which gives you NEXRAD radar imagery, METARS, TAFS, TFRs, lightning, winds and more through a XM WX Satellite Weather subscription. The GDL 69 can also provide SiriusXM Satellite Radio in the cockpit with a subscription.
When you add a GSR™ 56, you gain global weather capabilities through the Iridium satellite network. It can also support voice, text messaging and flight tracking/position reporting virtually anywhere in the world when coupled with the right subscriptions.
Fly Advanced Avionics
At the core of G1000H, potentially high-maintenance gyro instruments have been replaced with our proven Attitude and Heading Reference System. AHRS takes inputs from GPS, magnetometer and air data computers to achieve unprecedented levels of accuracy. G1000H provides support for Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) technology, which offers high-precision GPS guidance.
Integrate Your Cockpit
In addition to avionics, satellite communications and weather, the G1000 can integrate a range of additional equipment in your cabin. The GMA 350H audio panel is the first of its kind to bring advanced auto squelch, 3-D audio and hands-free operations to helicopter cockpits. With a GTS™ series TAS or TCAS I traffic system (sold separately), you can easily monitor the positions of other aircraft in your vicinity. The system is also designed to work with the GTX™ 33 ES Mode-S transponder, which provides Traffic Information System (TIS) support.
For safer arrivals and departures, Garmin FliteCharts® come standard. If you prefer Jeppesen-style charts, you can also add the ChartView service, which lets you overlay your aircraft’s position on an electronic approach chart. When you're on the ground, SafeTaxi® lets navigate taxiways and runways easily with a database of U.S., European and Canadian airport diagrams.
