REFLECTOR: Panel instruments
One thing that I picked up on almost immediately from the original post was
that there is some monetary limitations or concerns here. While the thought
of two GNC430s is definetly the best way to go, it also about the most
expensive. Retail on these each unit in near the $!0K mark! I've done enitre
panels, radios, flight instruments, and engine instruments for $14K.
If there is a budget to deal with here, and IFR is the objective, in todays
flying environment a VOR/ILS is a given. Even if this eliminates a panel
I would suggest a conventional Com/Nav (King, Narco, whatever), a stand alone
3 light Mkr Bcn, and a good handheld GPS with moving map. This can all be
accomplished in the $5 - $6K range and accomodate both IFR and VFR flight
with GPS precision. (Your GPS can navigate your autopilot from VOR to VOR in
IFR with the certified Nav being monitored.)
My 2 cents worth.
