Electronic Stability and Protection (ESP)
This electronic monitoring and exceedance-correcting technology, which is included in the Enhanced AFCS option, works to assist the pilot in maintaining the aircraft in a safe, flight-stable condition, helping to prevent the onset of stall, spins, overspeeds, steep spirals or other loss-of-control conditions, should the pilot become distracted, disoriented or incapacitated during flight. Garmin ESP is technology that can put more peace of mind at your fingertips.
Multi-Function Flight Display (MFD)
In the center of the panel, a standard dedicated MFD adds to the versatility and information display of the G1000, without infringing on the location of the two PFDs. Engine data, charts, traffic, weather, flight plans, menus and more are displayed in high resolution.
The Seneca features the pinnacle of pilot and passenger peace of mind: Level Mode, a function that, when triggered, will return the aircraft to a wings level attitude with zero vertical speed. Upon activation, Level Mode will automatically engage the flight director and autopilot functions to return the aircraft to straight and level flight. By simply pressing the blue button, Level Mode is activated and cancels all armed and active modes, without impeding other autopilot modes available. This ingenious additional safety measure provides further reassurance for pilot and passengers in the circumstantial case it would be required.
Aspen EFD1000 Pro Standby
The Seneca is the only piston twin to back up the G1000 with the Aspen EFD1000 Pro. The digital display makes the transition from primary to backup instruments less jarring than adjusting to round gauges. Additionally, the Aspen’s primary battery, dual alternators, and battery backup make the system virtually failure-proof.
Synthetic Vision (SVT)
Optional Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) takes situational awareness to a new level, regardless of what you can or cannot see through the windshield. Obstacles, terrain, water and airports are graphically depicted from multiple certified databases.
