Bye Aerospace joined together with Garmin in announcing that the two companies will partner to provide Garmin's G3X Touch for Bye's eFlyer 2 all-electric aircraft in development.

"As the trusted leader in avionics, we are very excited pilots have the opportunity to fly behind the G3X Touch avionics suite in the eFlyer 2," said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. "The G3X Touch in the eFlyer 2 boasts a superior feature set with modern capabilities such as wireless connectivity and synthetic vision, as well as geo-referenced charts, traffic, terrain and more, offering advanced avionics capabilities in a glass cockpit that is both impressive and intuitive. We look forward to continuing our business relationship with Bye Aerospace as they bring the eFlyer family of aircraft to market."

“Garmin is supplying the full VFR to IFR instrument capability, ADAHRS, GPS, transponders and standby instruments,” said George E. Bye, CEO of Bye Aerospace. “We are so pleased that eFlyer 2 will utilize the most advanced avionics technology available.”

The eFlyer 2 features elements that the company believes will be effective for flight training, with the G3X Touch fitting into that package: “Garmin’s reputation for providing comprehensive, intelligible, superior avionics systems aligns with our goal to provide flight schools and owner/operators with the safest, most reliable, and innovative pilot training aircraft ever produced,” said Bye.
