What kind of avionics are used in each aircraft (Updated and Expanded)

I really geeked out and made a list of the avionics used in each aircraft available in the various editions of MSFS2020. I also intend to include and update this list with aircraft available in the marketplace, but since I only sim on XBOX others may have to contribute to build a compete listing.

Things to Note:

  1. This list is simply for enthusiasts like me and it’s not intended to provide “study level” accuracy of aircraft systems available in MSFS. However, I’m aiming to be as accurate as possible so please let me know if there are inaccuracies and I will correct them! Also, as you will see, there are some gaps in the list specifically with jets and airliners. I mostly fly LSA, so please help me complete the list.

  2. What I’ve posted here is an expanded version of the original post that lists the avionics used in each aircraft. In the original post @CasualClick noted that that there are really only four “different types” of glass cockpits in MSFS (as of posting this), which you will find listed under the ‘Avionics’ column below. They are: G1000, G3000, G3X, and Rockwell Collins Proline 21 (RC-PL21). Any variances therein are strictly cosmetic renditions of the four available types.

**The Beechcraft King Air 350i is a bit weird. The EFDs look like the ones available in the Rockwell Collins Proline Fusion upgrade (for Beechcraft King Airs), but the in-sim display data certainly looks like a Garmin G3X. I agree with what others have said about this, and as a result listed the avionics as G3X for this aircraft. Note: Under the other columns (PFD, MFD, AP, FMS, etc.) for the Beechcraft King Air 350i I listed the panels as Rockwell Collins Proline Fusion (RC-PLF).
