Cessna 340 / 340A Smart Rudder Bias Approval
Additionally, Garmin is pleased to announce that the GFC 600 in the Cessna 340 and 340A is now capable of providing Smart Rudder Bias. Part of the Autonomi™ family, Smart Rudder Bias can provide additional assistance against hazardous effects of a one-engine inoperative event when appropriately equipped. Please refer to GFC 600 MDL Rev. 55 or later on the Garmin DRC for installation requirements. Smart Rudder Bias requires the installation of a Garmin G500 TXi or G600 TXi flight display with software version 3.12 or later, configured as a primary flight display and engine indication system. Additionally, a GFC 600 digital autopilot with the yaw servo option must be installed or added to an existing GFC 600 installation and a Rudder Bias switch must also be installed.
