Affordable, reliable replacement for mechanical DG and HSI

The compact and cost-effective G5 is a breakthrough. This 3.5” LCD screen fits in a standard 3 1/8” instrument hole and is more than a backup – it’s a standalone primary instrument for heading and course information. Far more reliable than vacuum-powered instruments, the built-in battery means G5 will continue to operate even if your electrical system should fail. Connect to your GTN or GNS series navigator and the G5 can also display VOR/LOC/GPS information. It will even drive popular autopilots made by Bendix/King, S-Tec, and Century. Approved for use in IFR and VFR flight.

Includes:

  • GMU 11 magnetometer for heading
  • GAD 29B ARINC 429 adapter to connect to your onboard GPS and autopilot (see list below)
  • Internal 4-hour battery

 

Dual G5 Installation Options Offer Added Redundancy

The G5 electronic flight instrument offers a wide range of flexible panel configuration options along with the reliability associated with a modern electronic flight instrument. Up to two G5 displays can be incorporated into a single aircraft panel in several approved combinations, including the attitude, DG/HSI or turn coordinator positions. In dual installations, a secondary G5 can revert to display attitude information in the unlikely event of a failure in the primary attitude indicator position. A pilot-selectable menu on the G5 DG/HSI enables the manual selection and interchange between the attitude indicator and DG/HSI display.

Autopilot Integration

Utilizing the new GAD 29B adapter, the G5 directional gyro (DG)/horizontal situation indicator (HSI) can interface with a variety of autopilots to provide heading and course error to drive the autopilot. With a compatible navigation source, the G5 can also interface with select autopilots for coupled flight in heading and navigation modes. Additionally, when interfaced with a GTN 650/750 or GNS 430W/530W, the G5 can provide GPSS roll steering navigation from the navigator to the autopilot. Pilots can simply select GPSS on the G5 and heading mode on the autopilot and the autopilot will fly smooth intercepts, holding patterns, procedure turns and more.

Third-party autopilot support is expected to include the following autopilots:

  • Century II/III
  • Century IV (AC), IV (DC)
