Glass Panel Continued airworthiness…

I was reading an article in Aviation Consumer tonight, and it talked about buying used airplanes with glass panels. It went on to alert the buyer to the varying needs for continued maintenance and other actions to ensure the glass remained airworthy.

That reminded me to have a look at the Garmin 530W and the Aspen EFD1000 paperwork. Turns out I installed those two on November 18, 2009. The Aspen requires that the emergency battery be replaced every three years, so I’ll make those arrangements in the morning. The Garmin 530W is fine.

While its up there, I’ll have the firmware and software checked and updated on both the Aspen and the Garmin 530W.
