  1. Garmin G5000 EASA Approval For Citation Excel/XLS Imminent
    Garmin has some good news for owners and operators of the Cessna Citation Excel and sister XLS aircraft. The Garmin G5000 integrated flight deck will have the green light from the European (Union) Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) imminently. The advantages of the G5000 are going to be immediately noticed by the pilots in the cockpit of the aforementioned aircraft. Overall the advantages will be efficient management and much better situational awareness for the flying crew. Instantly pilots/operators gain access to more airports and lower approach minimums throughout the world as the G5000 has PBN/RNP 0.3 with LPV/APV approach capability. Synthetic vision technology (SVT™), which presents a 3D virtual depiction of terrain, obstacles, traffic and the runway environment. SurfaceWatch™, which provides visual and aural cues to help prevent pilots from taking off and landing on a taxiway, on a runway that is too short or on the wrong runway based on performance data entered during preflight. Datalink weather, including access to global weather products and text/voice communication through the Iridium satellite network. Advanced Doppler weather radar features, including ground clutter suppression and turbulence detection. FANS-1/A+ and ACARS support, meeting requirements to fly the North Atlantic Track System (NATS).
  2. Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing, commented: "Working alongside EASA, we are thrilled to bring this complete flight deck solution to the European market and further expand the G5000 upgrade program for the Citation Excel and Citation XLS fleet. Since the program certification three years ago, well over 100 Excel and XLS aircraft have committed to upgrading with G5000, including aircraft from charter and fractional provider flyExclusive. We are gratified with the success thus far and look forward to continuing along that steady growth path following the EASA certification." The approval automatically transforms flight deck by providing an exceptional experience for European owners and operators, the G5000 integrated avionics suite modernizes the cockpit with additional capabilities, significantly reduces operational costs and increases situational awareness of the flight crew.
