- The most important element of any aircraft is the pilot. On certain occasions, the flight environment can become a stressful place during demanding conditions and situations. At Garmin, the human aspect is one of the most important factors we analyze in the development of our avionics. We maintain a state-of-the-art flight simulator laboratory at our headquarters in Olathe, Kansas, designed to replicate these demanding conditions that pilots experience everyday. See how our aviation human factors team tests and evaluates our innovative avionics that ultimately end up in cockpits throughout the world.
