"FliteLevel gives owners peace of mind and helps them avoid unscheduled downtime, service costs and headaches"

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, announced today extended warranty coverage for the G1000. Garmin’s FliteLevel Extended Warranty offers complete system wide maintenance protection for everything from cockpit displays to remote LRU’s, and is designed to give owners comprehensive protection against unexpected product failures when their standard two-year factory warranty expires.

“FliteLevel gives owners peace of mind and helps them avoid unscheduled downtime, service costs and headaches,” said Matt Harrah, Garmin’s director of aviation product support.

With various fixed price coverage plans to chose from, owners can evaluate their needs and budget and enroll in the plan that best meets their requirements. Plan options include those where Garmin covers local shop labor and replacement charges, or LRU exchanges and flat-rate factory repair fees only. FliteLevel also includes Garmin’s LRU exchange program, which ensures a quick replacement of faulty “black box” remote units, should one ever occur.

FliteLevel is available through OEMs and Garmin authorized service centers, depending on the airframe manufacturer. It is supported by Garmin’s global network of Authorized Sales and Service outlets that are based at hundreds of worldwide locations. Service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and includes AOG emergency service. Garmin’s FliteLevel service is fully transferable if during the warranty period the aircraft is sold to a new owner.
