Garmin Unveils PlaneSync Aircraft Management System

Garmin Unveils PlaneSync Aircraft Management System

Garmin, the aviation technology solutions provider, has introduced its PlaneSync connected aircraft management system in a bid to alleviate the complexities of airplane management. 

Available in forward-fit and retrofit applications, the system streamlines a myriad of pre-flight and post-flight checks for aircraft owners and operators. Through the Garmin Pilot app, aircraft operators can update avionics databases, log flight and engine data, and remotely inspect the status of the aircraft’s fuel and systems. 

Carl Wolf, Garmin Vice President of Aviation Sales and Marketing, sees the new technology simplifying the lives of pilots all over the world. He added that the PlaneSync system can be adopted by entire aircraft fleets and individual pilots and aircraft owners. 

“As constant innovators within the avionics industry, this impressive technology provides a solution that will simplify and reduce the complexities of aircraft management,” he said. 

“The capabilities of PlaneSync technology will help provide confidence to operators, from individual owner-pilots to crews for large fleets, that their aircraft is prepared for flight, improving the overall pilot experience so our customers can spend more time focused on the task at hand – flying.”

This is the latest feather in the cap for Garmin as the Kansas-based company signed an agreement with Archer Aviation in November to supply the eVTOL firm with its avionics system.
