Commander 114B G500, GTN750/650
This avionics retrofit was carried out at the end of December 2012. Comprising of a Garmin G500 Dual Screen display and a stack consisting of a Garmin GTN750 and Garmin GTN650, this modification was carried out with a brand new CAD designed instrument panel with scope for further expansion in the future.
With previous custom designed instrument panels for the Commander, we have removed the separate engine instrument panel in favour of a ‘one-piece’ panel. Because this aircraft is British registered, the EDM930 could not be added to this aircraft at the current time due to certification. When this becomes available we can just remove the current engine instrument panel and insert a pre-made plate for the EDM930.
Taking consideration of further modifications in the future, this aircrafts equipment can be updated and modified easily and inexpensively when the time comes.

Commander 114B Aspen Evo 1500 & EDM930
This modification was slightly different as in that the owner wanted to keep most of his current equipment, which included an Aspen Pro Evolution 1500 and Garmin GNS530 and GNS430. The aircraft wanted to upgrade his engine monitoring system, and decided to go with the JPI EDM930.
With the instrument panel already quite busy – we redesigned the aircraft instrument panel to accommodate the EDM930 as well as introduce some improvements to the panel at the same time. With the owners input, we came up with a layout that suited him, as ‘cleaning’ up the instrument panel as a whole too. We introduced Aspens flush mounts to include more of the bezel inside the panel (and thus allowing the owner to use control column lock once again on the P1 side) and evened out the P2 side of instruments to give a clean, sleek look.
This was also the first instrument panel we provided and applied custom vector placarding to, meaning it we had the ability to have decals and placards that are not only budget-friendly but look on par with when the aircraft left the factory.
