Eagle Creek Aviation has just completed its first three installations of the newly approved Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade on Embraer Phenom 100s.
The G1000 NXi upgrade is designed for Phenom 100 aircraft equipped with the Prodigy Flight Deck. The G1000 NXi allows for wireless flight plan and database updates, SurfaceWatch runway monitoring technology, visual approach guidance, HSI map and more.
“The NXi flight deck has been a popular upgrade for other airframe types, and we’re excited to be able to provide this product to our Phenom customers,” said Scott Dillon, President of Eagle Creek Aviation. “Our close relationship with Embraer and Garmin allows us to be an advocate for our customers, ensuring that each installation goes smoothly, and the aircraft is delivered with minimal downtime and that each customer is happy at the end of the day.”
Eagle Creek Aviation has a long history with Embraer, having been side by side with them dating back to the design phase of the Phenom and its introduction to the U.S. Market.
Over the last year, the company has completed sixteen 120-month / 10-year inspections on Phenom 100 aircraft and the first two 10-year inspections on Phenom 300s, while accomplishing the landing gear overhauls due at the same interval.
The company also completed more than 75 ADS-B installations on Phenom 100 and 300 aircraft, completing 25 in 2019 alone. Additionally, they have already presold a number of G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrades, scheduled to begin this spring. In addition to Phenoms, Eagle Creek has capabilities to install the NXi flight deck on King Airs as well.
As a leader in Phenom service and upgrades, Eagle Creek Aviation is an award-winning Garmin Service Center, Gogo Business Aviation dealer, multi-year FAA Diamond Award of Excellence recipient and an International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) accredited dealer and broker with nearly four decades of service.
