As compact as it is capable, the GNC 255A can bring powerful Nav/Comm capabilities to virtually any cockpit. Not only does the GNC 255A meet the basic needs of most pilots – including adhering to new airspace requirements in Europe – it also features a number of advanced features that save you time and effort. It also contains an internal VOR/LOC converter and 40-channel glideslope receiver.
Choose Your Installation
The GNC 255A comes with 25 kHz frequency channel spacing. The GNC 255A is available with 10 W of transmitter output, letting you find the right balance of power and price. It includes a 2-place intercom that’s ideal for 2-seat aircraft; no additional hardware is required to communicate with your passenger. It also contains an internal VOR/LOC converter and a 40 channel glidescope receiver. Plus, remote frequency flip-flop capability can help in demanding operating environments like helicopters, letting pilots keep their hands on the controls.
Reduce Your Workload
In addition to traditional Nav/Comm features, the GNC 255A incorporates a number of functions that can save you time and effort. Provide the GNC 255A with an airport or navaid identifier and it will automatically find all available frequencies (and vice versa) thanks to a built-in, updateable database. With a compatible GPS input, the device will find the nearest airport to your location and easily access its weather, center and FSS frequencies. You'll have the confidence to know you're talking to the right controller every time. The Nav/Comm's database technology also allows you to quickly pull up your most frequently or most recently used frequencies. The device even automatically decodes a station’s Morse code to provide a positive identification – no aural decoding required.
The GNC 255A will provide distance, time and speed when installed with a compatible GPS source like our GTN or GNS series avionics. All information is displayed on a bright sunlight-readable display so you can quickly read it all at a glance. And when paired with a G500, G500H, G600 or G3X flight display, it allows for the display of VOR and ILS indications on the PFD and can follow autopilot commands. Alternatively, you can use an HSI or CDI like our MD200-306, which has been specifically designed to work with the GNC 255A.
Listen to 2 Frequencies with 1 Comm
With the standby frequency-monitoring feature in the GNC 255A, you won’t have to worry about missing an ATC call or other critical transmission. The GNC 255A allows you to listen to ATIS without leaving your assigned ATC channel. Swapping your active and standby frequencies is done with a single touch of a button. Pressing and holding frequency transfer key will automatically set the emergency frequency as your active radio. You can use the built-in timer to assist with approaches, holds and other assigned maneuvers.
