Piper Aircraft announced that Garmin International has achieved certification from the Federal Aviation Administration for the G1000 NXi upgrade for G1000 equipped Meridian aircraft. The G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade is available immediately for these aircraft through select Garmin dealers and features several new enhancements such as SurfaceWatch, visual approaches, geographical map overlay within the HSI and more.

"The availability of the G1000 NXi upgrade for Piper Meridians is a great opportunity for our owners and operators to upgrade their aircraft to the latest Garmin technology. The Garmin upgrade not only offers the opportunity for new advanced capabilities, it also provides faster processing power which supports quicker map rendering and smoother panning throughout the displays," said Piper Aircraft President and CEO Simon Caldecott. "We appreciate our continued partnership with Garmin and their support of our owners and well as their commitment to developing new advanced technologies that continue to advance general aviation and safety."

"G1000 NXi-equipped aircraft are recognized for their advanced capabilities and significant performance upgrades, and today we're excited to add another aircraft to the eligibility list," said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation sales and marketing. "When pilots fly behind this modern integrated flight deck, they'll immediately notice its smooth and responsive display and appreciate the latest, innovative features - they'll wonder how they ever flew without the G1000 NXi." 

The G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade for existing G1000-equipped Piper Meridian aircraft is available immediately through select Garmin dealers. Meridian owners and operators can easily upgrade to the G1000 NXi with minimal aircraft down time and disruption of the panel as the displays preserve the same footprint and connectors, so panel modifications are not required. The upgraded components of the G1000 NXi also come with a two-year warranty, which is supported by Garmin's award-winning avionics product support team.
