Garmin G5 EFIS in a Piper PA28-140

In 2018 this aircraft got a new avionics package but the original VAC driven attitude indicator and directional gyro was kept in the panel. Due to failing instruments it was decided to replace the existing instruments for 2 ea Garmin G5 EFIS attitude and HSI. The STC defines in which position the instruments must be installed but in this case – since basic T could not be achieved we decided (after consultation with Garmin) to install the G5’s in the same location were the old attitude indicator and directional gyro was installed. The installation includes an OAT module GAD13 and there is still room for a Garmin GFC500 autopilot in case the owner wishes to add this later on.
