AMI Aviation Services is taking pre-orders for an STC and PMA kit with optional installation services to retrofit the Beechcraft 1900D with Garmin G950 glass-panel technology.

The kit includes, in part, the three-screen Garmin G950 system, dual 10.4-inch primary flight displays with Garmin synthetic-vision technology and a 15-inch multifunction display with Eicas. Expected availability is next year’s second quarter.
