Garmin achieves G5000 retrofit milestone for Citation aircraft

As of now, 10% of the Cessna Citation Excel and XLS business jet fleet has been retrofitted with Garmin's G5000 integrated flight deck upgrade."We are thrilled that so many owners and operators have chosen to upgrade their Citation Excel/XLS with the G5000 since we announced program certification just two years ago," said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. "Offering an unprecedented level of situational awareness, the G5000 also yields a significantly lower cost of operation and delivers an exceptional in-flight experience making it an attractive upgrade in these popular aircraft."The G5000 integrated flight deck features three landscape-oriented flight displays with split-screen capability, allowing pilots to simultaneously view maps, charts, checklists, flight plan information, weather, and more. Electronic charts and Garmin SafeTaxi airport diagrams are geo-referenced and can be viewed across all three displays.Installation of the G5000 on the Citation Excel/CLS includes a fully digital Automatic Flight Control System, offering precise performance throughout the aircraft's flight envelope. The G5000 retrofit for the Citation Excel also includes Emergency Descent Mode as a standard feature that can be enabled by the autopilot in the event of a loss in aircraft pressurization. Underspeed protection (USP) is an optional feature that allows the autopilot to assist with airspeed management, while also enabling fully coupled go-arounds, greatly reducing pilot workload.
