To meet and exceed modern needs, multi-use operations and certification requirements throughout the world, while also remaining reliable and cost effective, Quest Aircraft has designed the KODIAK with the Garmin G1000 avionics suite. Depending on your geographical location and operation, here are some enhancements you may want to consider.
To adapt your KODIAK to specific needs or missions/roles, the following is available on an optional basis:
GD-69A XM data link w/ Audio Infotainment. From takeoff to landing, XM WX Satellite weather information boosts pilot situational awareness through interactive graphical weather updates through the G1000 MFD. Plus, receive entertainment through 170 channels of music, news, sports via the aircraft stereo intercom system.
For added protection in “see and avoid” traffic situations, nothing beats this Traffic Advisory (TAS) and Traffic Collision Avoidance (TCAS 1) system. This option provides active, accurate and dynamic traffic surveillance, fully integrated into the G1000 cockpit.
Weather Radar – Garmin GWX68
Avoid bad weather with fully integrated digital color radar. Easy to interpret and operate, this real time weather radar provides you the power to see serious weather ahead, allowing time to make safer decisions sooner.
StormScope was developed to specifically detect and display thunderstorm activity by analyzing radiated signals of electrical discharge from storm cells. Fully integrated into the G1000, it provides an accurate view of areas of storms to be avoided.
Chartview – Jeppesen
This option brings an electronic version of Jeppensen’s extensive library of charts and airport diagrams directly to the G1000 multi-function display (MFD). Approach charts, geopolitical features, airspace, airways and airport diagrams are visually displayed. In addition pilots will see the KODIAK’s position on the chart.
ELT 406 GPS Upgrade
Upgrade the existing 406 ELT with an interface that when activated, broadcast your position with the distress signal.
