Heart Aerospace, headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, has announced that it has entered into a long-term agreement with Garmin International (Garmin) for the provision of the Garmin G3000® integrated flight deck for its ES-19 all-electric nineteen-passenger airliner.
The first ES-19 is scheduled to be in service by 2026 and this first-generation aircraft will have a 400 km maximum range, driven entirely by lithium-ion batteries and electric motors. The main advantages of the ES-19 are its zero carbon emissions, low noise and appreciably lower operating costs when compared with similar-sized gas-turbine aircraft.
The modular Garmin G3000 integrated flight deck is light in weight and offers vibrant, high-resolution flight displays which support navigation, communication and flight sensor solutions and which integrates seamlessly with the ES-19 aircraft systems. Specifically designed for electric aircraft, the G3000 system that will be supplied for Heart Aerospace’s ES-19 will deliver enhanced capabilities to optimise the electric drive train and battery management systems.
“We’re thrilled to have Garmin provide its industry-leading G3000 integrated flight deck, customised and optimised for integration and operation in our ES-19 all-electric airliner,” said Anders Forslund, CEO of Heart Aerospace.Email Post to a Friend
