About this Presentation
ABS welcomes Garmin Aviation Customer Experience Manager Joey Ferreyra to learn about Garmin autopilot upgrades tailored to Beech owners. Learn about Garmin’s latest advanced technology to support emergency engine inoperative events in Bonanzas and Barons, based on its Collier Award-wining Autoland technology. This program will cover:
- Garmin business update
- GFC 500/GFC 600 availability status by Beech aircraft model
- GFC 500/GFC 600 overview
- Smart Glide and Smart Rudder Bias technology
- Operational limitations
Viewers will be able to type in their questions to be answered during the event. We’ll explain how to do so at the beginning of the webinar. This program is recognized for ABS AVIATOR and FAA WINGS credit.
Although this American Bonanza Society program is oriented toward pilots of Beech Bonanzas, Debonairs, Barons and Travel Airs, the discussion, techniques and procedures described are valuable to the pilot of any airplane.
Joey Ferreyra dreams of somehow flying aircraft every day while also being home every evening with his wife and children for dinner. As a commercial pilot, Joey enjoys serving aircraft owners as part of the Garmin Aviation team for over a decade. He’s recently realized his dream of becoming an aircraft owner with the completion of his RV-10.
This ABSWeb presentation is presented in gratitude for Garmin’s support of the ABS Air Safety Foundation and funded by generous donations from members of the American Bonanza Society.
