Garmin Receives Approval For New G5000 Features And Upgrades For The Citation Excel And Citation XLS

Garmin International announced it continues to make significant investments and add valuable enhancements to the G5000 integrated flight deck upgrade in the Citation Excel and Citation XLS.

New software-enabled features1 include stabilized approach monitoring, steep approach certification and reactive windshear detection, as well as optional takeoff and landing data (TOLD) calculations. New hardware approvals for these aircraft include the Garmin Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), the GRA 5500 radar altimeter and the GTS 8000, which all address third-party product obsolescence for these aircraft.

“Given the tremendous success and demand of the G5000 integrated flight deck upgrade in the Citation Excel and Citation XLS, we’re excited to introduce new features that will add significant capability to this upgrade,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “With the G5000, owners and operators receive zero-time avionics that yield a lower cost of operation, along with situational awareness tools that streamline cockpit operations, all of which make the G5000 upgrade in these popular aircraft an absolute must.”
