Cessna 172 Dual G5/GTN Upgrade to meet IFR requirements
The co-owner of the C-172P contacted us with an avionics upgrade request to meet the conditions for IFR operation. The aircraft was equipped with only a few modern avionics solutions, including a Garmin GTN650 and a Garmin GTX328. The rest of the panel consisted of the original avionics from the aircraft’s production in 1986.
After a brief discussion, we found a perfect avionics solution which met the customer’s requirements whilst being cost-effective at the same time. In place of the artificial horizon and the gyrocompass, we installed a pair of Garmin G5 certified. The old KMA-24 audio panel was replaced by a modern Garmin GMA 345 with Bluetooth. To fulfil the requirement of two 8.33 kHz radios, we installed a Garmin GNC 255A COM / NAV transceiver. The navigation equipment was completed by a KN-62A DME receiver containing a harmonic filter, which is a requirement for operations in Europe.
Since the bulk of the radio rack was going to be changed, we offered the customer to replace the existing cabling, which had become unsatisfactory after various modifications. Thanks to the aircraft inspection before installation we were able to prepare the cable harness in our workshop without having to ground the aircraft. This shortened the installation time by one week.
Ten days after the start of the installation, the aircraft was ready for the first ground tests associated with the GMU 11 magnetometer calibration. After calibration, the new avionics were tested, and the transponder and altimeter measurements were taken to ensure that the avionics system met all the conditions to remove the VFR restrictions from the ARC.
Completion of the project took place 4 days after the ground tests. Over these 4 days, the overvoltage warning light in the on-board network was repaired, the old audio jacks were replaced for stereo jacks, the GTN 650 software was updated, and the release documentation was approved.
During flight tests, an issue with the GS indication on the G5 and the GI-106 was discovered. The issue was traced down to the original coaxial splitter, which was defective. Thanks to the comprehensive inventory of the AIR TEAM company, the replacement of the splitter for a new one was accomplished within an hour.
On the second test flight, the GS receiver was working perfectly.
