Citation Excel and 560XLS Garmin G5000 Upgrade

Duncan Aviation is pleased to offer Citation 560XL operators a new aftermarket option for their flight deck that will meet upcoming mandates and provide a fully integrated glass flight deck.

Garmin International is currently working to certify the Garmin G5000 flight deck for the Citation Excel. The Supplemental Type Certificate and avionics kits will be ready for installation at Duncan Aviation by the beginning of 2019. In the meantime, Duncan Aviation has put together pre-STC incentive packages that include access to an ADS-B Out mandate solution that utilizes Garmin equipment and an Early Adopter incentive program that gives the first 10 adopters significant discounts for their early commitment.

The Garmin G5000 Flight Deck

The G5000 Integrated Flight Deck is a modernized avionics suite that is equipped to meet and exceed industry requirements, while also offering a lower cost of operation and a three-year warranty.  It features three high-resolution 14-inch flight displays situated alongside dual touch-screen controllers. The intuitive menu structures within G5000 feature a straightforward user interface, contributing to ease of operation. G5000 also offers optimal situational awareness, which features landscape oriented flight displays with multi-pane capability, allowing pilots to simultaneously view maps, charts, checklists, TAWS, TCAS, flight plan information, weather and more. Geographical map overlay within the HSI is also available on the PFD. Charts can be viewed across all three displays and are geo-referenced, including Garmin FliteCharts terminal approach procedures or optional Garmin ChartView powered by Jeppesen, as well as Garmin SafeTaxi airport diagrams. The G5000 flight deck for the Citation Excel/XLS is estimated to provide a weight savings of 200 pounds or more compared to the current system, allowing additional baggage, passenger and/or fuel load flexibility.
