Standard avionic package

The P2012 Traveller is designed around a flexible, intuitive and low pilot workload with roomy and comfortable access for a second pilot when required.

note: some optional equipment (such as the ADF) may be mandatory in some countries to enable the P2012 to fly under IFR conditions as an airline passenger transport.

The avionics suite is based on the latest generation Garmin G1000 Nxi, composed of two 10 inch PFDs and a single central 12 inchMFD. Remote redundant AHRS and ADC (inertial and air data units) provide the main flight and attitude information whilst a backup is provided by a small, vertical layout MD-302 (Mid-Continent). Communications and navigation are based on dual remote units which provide selectable data on the cockpit screens. An optionally provided Flight Management System keyboard allows immediate and comfortable insertion of frequencies and waypoints, while another optionally provided Garmin Flight Stream device allows an immediate and wireless link between flight suite and portable devices such as tablets or smartphones for immediate introduction of flight plans, waypoints, routes, frequencies etc…

A remote unit transponder, mode-S, is provided as standard with ADS-B OUT, ADS-B IN, FIS-B to match the incoming future General Aviation requirements for navigation and traffic awareness.
Dual heated pitot probes, one provided with AoA indication output, is also provided as standard to enhance the flight safety in all phases, supporting flight especially during single pilot operations.
A single, latest generation Garmin GMA 350C audio panel, manages the ATC and internal communications with several facilities such as 3D audio and separation of pilot/co-pilot communication channels (split function). The standard avionics suite is then completed by the latest generation Garmin Automatic Flight Control System, with three axis of operations and provided by yaw damper (selectable also when A/P is OFF). A/P mode controller, installed on the top of flight deck, allows immediate interaction via dedicated pushbuttons and rotary wheels. Engines monitoring is fully integrated inside the avionics suite screens and allows a perfect management of power, with significant and revolutionary features: fully automatic mixture control, absence of related lever and always guarantees the best fuel/air ratio for every single cylinder.
