Fast forward 5, 10, 15 years when the G1000, EX5000, etc. integrated panels are at end of life from the manufacturer. What do you do with your 172S w/ G1000? Answer, you will have to upgrade it, but to what? There will need to be an STC to install something else, but what? and from whom? Well, for the high number production models like 172, SR22, there may be an upgrade from the manufacturer. For others, it will require a 3rd party STC from some business who has a) determined there is a business case for investment, b) gone through the STC process, and c) actually ships and installs these upgrades.

My fear is that with the much fewer number produced airframes, there may be no option and therefore, the airframe becomes junk.

We will have to wait and see what happens, but even if you can upgrade your G1000 172, are you going to spend $50-$100k in a complete upgrade/replacement of the integrated panel IN ONE SHOT?
