Quest Updates The Kodiak 100 To Series II
Quest Aircraft has revealed a whole number of updates to the Kodiak 100. The standard equipment list has been expanded to include Garmin’s next generation G1000NXi, as well as an Angle-of-Attack indicator, digital 4-in-1 standby, Flight Stream 510 and a two-year subscription to the Kodiak Mobile App, backed by Garmin Pilot.
The Series II also received upgrades in the comfort department, making the aircraft more versatile by adding glove-boxes, updated Rosen sun visors and new plugs for its hardwired headsets from BOSE. The cargo doorstep has been redesigned to reduce weight and improve functionality, and fuselage seals have been looked at for better soundproofing and cabin ventilation. Additionally, a single point refueling station is now available as an option, designed to give the operator a simple, clean and easy way to refuel both wing tanks using a single port.
About 200 enhancements have been incorporated into the Kodiak platform since its 2008 introduction, including the addition of two entirely new interiors, an increased landing weight, and the integration of the Garmin GFC 700 AFCS. The newly certified and upgraded aircraft will be on display at the Quest booth during EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
