This pilot wanted a full panel upgrade including an autopilot. After discussing the options he decided that the whole project was to much money at one time. We decided the a staged approach was the best, and we determined the best plan of attack. Phase 1 was a G5, GNS 530W, and a GTX 345 transponder. This enabled him to become ADS-B compliant while working towards his ultimate goal. The end project is a G3x touch or Dual G5s with a GFC 500 autopilot. Since all of the components in this phase are required for the final project its a perfect first step.
