KGP 860 General Aviation Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS)

In flight environments that demand an ever-increasing amount of attention, pilots need a higher level of situational awareness. The Honeywell Bendix/King KGP 860 enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) incorporates much of the same terrain database technology found in our air transport EGPWS, while specifically protecting light turbine and piston aircraft from the threat of controlled flight into terrain (CFIT). Based on Honeywell's proven CFIT alerting algorithms, our EGPWS provides advanced alerting while virtually eliminating nuisance warnings.

CFIT is one of the leading causes of General Aviation fatalities. In addition to being TSO'd to C151 Class B TAWS requirements, the KGP 860 provides regional terrain database coverage.

Key benefits of EGPWS:

  CFIT protection in a compact package
  Meets TSO-C151 Class B requirements
  Regional terrain database coverage

System is priced with the KGP 860 EGPWS, installation kit, and America, Pacific or Atlantic database card
