Garmin Technology Seminar

Maxcraft hosts its 2013 Garmin Technology Seminar

We did it again! Maxcraft’s 2013 Garmin Seminar was our most successful yet and one of Garmin’s largest!


With over 150 people attending, demo equipment, cockpit displays, drinks and a delicious chili dinner,  the evening was both entertaining and informative. After dinner and a bit of mingling between guests and staff, the main event got underway.

Wayne McGhee, our Garmin speaker, spoke about new technology and all that Garmin’s current product lineup has to offer — From light fixed-wing aircraft to commercial helicopters and business jets, he had the answers to most questions.  Wayne focused on the operation, features and benefits of Garmin’s latest generation of panel mount products.

Whilst Wayne was speaking, our guests were able to have a first hand look at fully-installed systems and projects in-progress right in our hangar!  Wayne talked about ADS-B, portables, Canadian FliteCharts the new Garmin GPS Watch. We had various draws and prizes throughout the show for products courtesy of Garmin and Maxcraft.  During the presentation our guests took turns checking out the powered up Garmin cockpits of a Cessna 182P and a Beech 58P Baron.  Also on display was a 1954 Boss Beaver currently disassembled for a full Garmin glass panel upgrade.

During our break, coffee and various desserts were gobbled up and demo’s were played with.  After the break, we did our draw for the most anticipated prize, the brand new Garmin D2 GPS Watch.   Our winner, Mr. Ken Ayre is pictured above.

After the break our guest speaker, Don Bradshaw gave us a PowerPoint presentation on his transatlantic trips in glass cockpit piston Baron.   It was exciting!He had some excellent photos both from out the window and on the ground, everywhere from Argentina, London, Paris, to Greenland.
