Flying - - LIFE IN THE AIR -

With a Garmin G5, even a 30-year-old air­plane can trade those steam gauges for a glass panel of sorts and take ad­van­tage of the lat­est in nav­i­ga­tion tech­nol­ogy. When con­fig­ured as an at­ti­tude in­di­ca­tor, the G5 uses a solid-state AHRS to sup­port dis­play of air­speed, alti­tude, ver­ti­cal speed, slip/skid, turn rate, con­fig­urable V-speed ref­er­ences, baro­met­ric set­ting and se­lected alti­tude, as well as vis­ual alti­tude alerts. The G5 in­cludes a four-hour bat­tery backup for emer­gency sit­u­a­tions that de­mand more than the tra­di­tional 30-minute stan­dard. $2,149;
