The compact and cost-effective G5 electronic flight instrument delivers exceptional performance and reliability as a standalone primary source for aircraft attitude information. It also displays secondary information, such as airspeed and altitude, to offer enhanced situational awareness. G5 features an economical upgrade path in type certificated fixed-wing general aviation aircraft, accomplished via supplemental type certificate (STC) with a comprehensive approved model list (AML). The safety-enhancing capabilities of G5 revolutionize general aviation (GA) by bringing modern attitude reference to thousands of aircraft that would otherwise depend on older, vacuum-driven equipment.
Innovative Technology for GA Aircraft
In place of a primary attitude indicator or turn coordinator, the G5 electronic flight instrument is approved for installation — via a Garmin-held STC — for hundreds of certificated fixed-wing aircraft models. Valid for flight under VFR and IFR conditions, G5 is an economical upgrade path for thousands of owners seeking an electrically driven attitude indicator with greater dependability and internal redundancy over vacuum-driven attitude flight instruments.

Boasting a bright, 3.5-inch sunlight-readable LCD display, G5 is approved as a primary source for aircraft attitude information. Plus, it serves as a secondary source for altitude, airspeed and vertical speed — all in a single instrument. Installation is simple and easy; G5 integrates with the aircraft’s existing pitot/static system and displays attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, slip/skid, turn rate, ground track, configurable V-speed references, barometric setting and selected altitude as well as visual alerts upon arriving at the pre-selected altitude. Built-in GPS provides GPS-based track and groundspeed information, and a dedicated rotary knob allows for easy adjustments to altitude bugs and barometric pressure settings.
Installed in a standard 3-1/8 inch (79.4 mm) instrument hole, G5 measures 3 inches in depth and includes a back-up battery so it easily integrates into a wide range of aircraft. Installation is further simplified as G5 only needs power, ground, pitot/static and GPS inputs so it also integrates with the aircraft’s existing systems. For aircraft without a compatible GPS position input, an optional GPS antenna is available. As part of the STC, G5 includes a 4-hour back-up battery, and pilots can easily reference battery status in the upper left-hand corner of the display.
Replace a Legacy DG with an Affordable, Modern Glass Solution
Featuring a bright, 3.5” sunlight readable liquid crystal display (LCD), the G5 electronic flight instrument will be approved for installation in place of the aircraft’s existing DG/HSI via a Garmin-held STC for hundreds of certificated fixed-wing aircraft models. Utilizing the new GMU 11 magnetometer, the G5 electronic flight instrument displays magnetic heading. A dedicated rotary knob allows pilots to easily select and adjust course and make heading bug selections. Suitable for installation in place of a standard 3-1/8” (79 millimeters) flight instrument, the G5 measures 3” (76 millimeters) in depth with the back-up battery so it can easily be integrated into a wide range of aircraft. The G5 electronic flight instrument is also approved for flight under VFR and IFR conditions, offering an economical upgrade for thousands of aircraft owners. Please note that the G5 for Certificated Aircraft AML STC does not include support for autopilot interfaces.
Connect a GPS Navigator for HSI Functionality
When paired with the GTN 650/750, GNS 430W/530W or non-WAAS GNS 430/530 navigators via the GAD 29 and GMU 11, the G5 will be approved as a primary source to display vertical and lateral GPS/VOR/LOC course deviation when available as well as groundspeed and distance to the next waypoint. In a G5 configuration paired with the GNC 255 or SL 30 Nav/Comm radio via the GMU 11, the G5 will be approved as a primary source to display lateral and vertical course deviation when available. Additionally, a single magnetometer is capable of supplying magnetic heading information to 2 G5 electronic flight instruments simultaneously.
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 2 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. Each G5 for certificated aircraft includes a 4-hour back-up battery for use in the event of an aircraft electrical system failure. In dual G5 configurations, customers receive dual ADAHRS and dual back-up batteries, offering safety-enhancing redundancy.
