Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, and Jeppesen, a leading provider of aeronautical charting and navigation services, are pleased to announce PilotPakâ„¢, a new bundle pricing program for databases on select Garmin panel mount avionics. PilotPak provides a more affordable single aircraft pricing structure and simplifies the database purchase process by offering a one-stop shop experience.
â€œGarmin and Jeppesen are continuing to make it easier and more affordable for pilots to keep their aviation databases up-to-date,â€ said Gary Kelley, Garminâ€™s vice president of marketing. â€œWe know that pilots depend on these databases for safety and convenience, and weâ€™re pleased to work together to offer customers a single and comprehensive purchase and support solution.â€
PilotPak provides all the databases within the selected package to be used with any combination of GTNâ„¢, G600, G500, G500H and G3X installed in one aircraft, all for a single annual price. Each bundle option includes Garminâ€™s popular SafeTaxiÂ®, Obstacle, Terrain and Airport Directory, and customers are able to choose between bundle options that include Jeppesen NavData, Jeppesen JeppView and/or Garmin FliteChartsÂ®.
With a PilotPak Standard Americas subscription, a pilot can enjoy 20 percent savings on databases for a single GTN or 60 percent savings with the inclusion of a G500 when compared to purchasing annual subscriptions to each database individually. When Garminâ€™s FliteCharts are included, the savings on databases for a single GTN 750 amount to over 30 percent and when combined with a G500, the customer saves over 70 percent. Whether a pilot has one or more of the qualified avionics, they pay a single, affordable price for the selected package.
The databases have been bundled into several different packages:
The Lite, Standard and Standard with Garmin FliteCharts PilotPak options are available from www.flygarmin.com. The Standard and Standard with Jeppesen JeppView options are available at www.jeppesen.com/gtn.
