Garmin Product Presentation

On December 9, 2016, Leading Edge Avionics hosted over 100 clients, pilots, owners and aviation enthusiasts for a GARMIN presentation featuring their latest and most technologically-advanced avionics. We invited our friends from all over Orange County and beyond to join us for this presentation and party, with some guests choosing to fly-in for this event.

Our guests were treated to an hour-long presentation from Mike Young of GARMIN, who showcased GARMIN’s host of avionics equipment and illuminated the advantages their various technology brings to the General Aviation market. Not only was the latest ADS-B equipment highlighted which includes GARMIN’s GTX 335 and GTX 345, but Mike also showed the numerous benefits for pilots and aircraft owners to install GARMIN’s GPS/Nav/Comm units including the powerhouse GTN 750 and GTN 650.

With the FAA’s ADS-B mandate rapidly approaching, our guests had quite a few questions regarding the overall mandate, its deadline, benefits of ADS-B In versus ADS-B Out and other very important topics. These questions were answered and provided an opportunity to discuss GARMIN’s ADS-B options like the GTX 345. This model is an all-in-one transponder solution for both ADS-B In and Out. Mike highlighted how the GTX 345 combines Mode S Extended Squitter (ES) transponder and optional WAAS/GPS position source in a single unit, as well as many additional features of this unit.

The engaging presentation was followed by a holiday-themed party, complete with amazing appetizers, cocktails and music which lasted late into the evening. A great time was had by all to enjoy the event along with the company of their fellow aviation enthusiasts. Due to the success of this manufacturer presentation and party, Leading Edge Avionics will be hosting more of these educational, but fun presentations throughout 2018.
