2023 Aero Club of New England Godfrey L. Cabot Award Luncheon

The 2023 Godfrey L. Cabot Award
will be presented to
June 16, 2023
Garmin’s Aviation Division will be honored with the prestigious Cabot Award
in recognition of its truly unique and remarkable safety innovations in
aircraft avionics.

Garmin is dedicated to the passionate pursuit of active, safety-enhancing
technologies that make flying easier and provide advanced capabilities
designed to help make flying safer. It’s a vision that grows directly from
Garmin’s legacy of innovation and leadership in aviation.

Nearly 30 years ago, Garmin reached a milestone when they introduced the
first GPS product certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. They
followed this with the GNS 430. The first GPS navigator with a color moving
map, COM, VOR, LOC, and glideslope capability. This became general
aviation’s single most popular certified GPS to date.

Garmin has most recently developed Autoland, which is the first certified autonomous system that can activate in an emergency to land an aircraft without human intervention. This is a remarkable technical achievement. Through Garmin Aviation’s many innovations they have made aviation much safer throughout the world.
