Skyhawk, 86V, avionics upgraded

Cessna Skyhawk upgraded to TAA standards

Sporty’s has upgraded its Cessna Skyhawk, N2386V to technically advanced aircraft (TAA) standards. Dual Garmin G5 installations and a Garmin 430W installation were recently completed, delivering bright LCD color instrument displays and a modern flight deck.

Combining information from a number of traditional flight instruments, including attitude, airspeed, altitude, and more, the Garmin G5 attitude indicator makes flight information easier to scan so pilots can respond quickly and intuitively. The addition of the second G5 display for heading/HSI guidance, provides pilots with backup attitude redundancy. The secondary G5 will automatically revert to displaying attitude information in the unlikely event of a failure of the primary attitude indicator.

For added protection and safety, each G5 display is equipped with a backup lithium-ion battery providing 4 hours of emergency operation in case of electrical failure.
