2 min read

Textron Aviation is poised to make a significant leap in aviation technology with the impending availability of the Garmin G5000 integrated flight deck upgrade for Citation XLS+ and XLS Gen2 aircraft. This game-changing announcement comes as Textron Aviation anticipates FAA supplemental type certification approval in the first half of 2024, paving the way for modernized cockpit experiences and more cost-efficient operations.

The popularity of Garmin’s G5000 integrated flight deck among Citation Excel and XLS customers is undeniable, offering unmatched situational awareness, reduced operational costs, and an overall superior in-flight experience. Brian Rohloff, Senior Vice President of Customer Support at Textron Aviation, eagerly anticipates extending this upgrade option to a broader audience, reaffirming Textron Aviation’s commitment to providing outstanding customer experiences and support throughout the aircraft’s life cycle.

The G5000 avionics suite is designed to provide pilots with a cutting-edge and user-friendly flight deck, featuring landscape-oriented displays with split-screen capability, intuitive touchscreen controllers, and geo-referenced Garmin SafeTaxi® airport diagrams for enhanced situational awareness during taxiing.

Moreover, the G5000 upgrade installation offers a fully digital Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) for precision performance throughout the flight envelope. Notably, it includes Emergency Descent Mode (EDM) for automatic descent in case of cabin pressurization loss, along with underspeed protection (USP) for airspeed management assistance. Operators will also benefit from expanded access to airports and lower approach minimums worldwide.

Textron Aviation encourages aircraft owners to explore the potential of modernizing their aircraft with this state-of-the-art avionics suite.
