    Garmin makes a breakthrough
  • Garmin saw its stock rise almost 10% following strong third-quarter performance. Sales climbed 15% from the year-ago quarter, lifted by especially good performance in the aviation, fitness, and outdoor segments. Pro forma earnings per share were up 27% year over year. CEO Cliff Pemble credited “our lineup of great products in every market segment” for the successful quarter. Yet what might be even more important is the release of Garmin’s new Autoland system, which will land small general aviation aircraft in the event of an emergency without pilot assistance. As aviation safety becomes a more pressing issue industry wide, Garmin is positioning itself to bolster its leadership role in that part of its business.

  • Each aviation generation sees a handful of revolutionary concepts, those leading-edge technologies that, once introduced to the airplane — because they are so game-changing — undergo a transition period before we fully understand the increase in safety that they can provide. Garmin announced today its entry into that rarefied space: the first Autoland system developed exclusively for use in light, personal airplanes, as part of Garmin’s Autonomí suite.
  • When activated, the emergency system will assume control of the airplane, engage in an upset recovery if needed, determine the best route to an appropriate airport (based on weather, terrain, airport facilities and other factors), and maneuver the airplane to that airport — all the way to a full-stop landing on the runway — without human intervention.
  • Certification is in process for a number of aircraft, with the Piper M600 looking to be first out the door, and the Cirrus Vision Jet to certify soon after. Autoland will come standard in most applications, as the companies involved in its initial certification share the philosophy that this level of safety should be part of a pilot’s regular tool kit. More to come — as we’ve flown with this system for an upcoming issue of Flying.
  • shares of MongoDB finished higher by 6%. The database platform provider announced a partnership with the cloud division of Alibaba Group under which Alibaba customers will get access to an authorized MongoDB database-as-a-service solution. MongoDB CEO Dev Ittycheria was pleased with the opportunity for his company to expand in China, which has already been a lucrative market for the database services provider. With new features available through the collaboration, MongoDB expects customers of all sizes to benefit, and investors hope that they’ll see accelerating growth as a result to help the stock rebound from its recent slump.
