G5000® FLIGHT DECK UPGRADE FOR CITATION EXCEL AND CITATION XLS

Operators of Cessna Citation Excel and XLS series aircraft have a great option for making their favorite jets even more productive. G5000 adds LPV and FANS-1/A capabilities — as well as the latest in Garmin flight displays and touchscreen controllers for flight deck management. And it provides advanced situational awareness tools that streamline cockpit operations and add significant new capabilities to the aircraft.

Cessna Citation Excel and XLS flight deck upgrades

MODERN, RELIABLE ZERO-TIME AVIONICS

Our G5000 flight deck upgrade offers the most intuitive and robust pilot interface ever seen in this class of avionics equipment. It also reduces the cost required to maintain older avionics, breathing new life and capability into the airframe.

Large format flight displays with touchscreen controllers

COMPLETE FLIGHT DISPLAY SOLUTION

Combining three landscape-oriented 14” flight displays with two intuitive touchscreen controllers that serve as the primary crew interface for the system, the G5000 flight deck puts a wealth of capability at pilots’ fingertips.

The wide-format flight displays can function in split-screen mode, allowing multiple pages (or reversionary PFD/MFD) to be viewed side by side on the same screen. With this capability, pilots can configure panels to simultaneously view maps, charts, checklists, terrain, traffic, weather, video input and more, without cluttering or compromising the clean visual layout. Plus, all engine indications and crew alerting messages are integrated into the flight deck, providing crews with better awareness to critical operating parameters.

G5000 allows access to more airports and lower approach minimums throughout the world with PBN/RNP 0.3 with LPV approach capability. And it includes a fully integrated ADS-B “Out” solution and more.

Plus, new hardware approvals — including a modern, digital Garmin AHRS, GRA™ 5500 radar altimeter and GTS™ 8000 TCAS/ACAS II — address third-party product obsolescence for these aircraft.

Upgrade your autopilot capabilities in Cessna Citation Excel and XLS aircraft with G5000.

ADVANCED AUTOPILOT

The G5000 integrated flight deck includes a fully digital, dual-channel, fail-passive automatic flight control system (AFCS). Providing optimized performance throughout your aircraft’s flight envelope, the system supports a wide range of capabilities that include coupled LPV approaches, vertical navigation, flight level change and other sophisticated flight monitoring and performance features. In addition, the AFCS supports Garmin emergency descent mode in the event of a loss of cabin pressurization as well as underspeed protection, which allows the autopilot to assist with airspeed management — while also enabling fully coupled go-arounds.

CPDLC support for FAA Data Comm and Eurocontrol Link 2000+

DATA COMM CAPABLE

G5000 supports CPDLC, including the FAA Data Comm and Eurocontrol Link 2000+ programs, for faster departure clearance — as well as en route exchange of data link messages with air route traffic control centers in the U.S. Additionally, datalink message recording capability is available with an optional CVR.

Advanced moving-map display with FliteCharts, SafeTaxi diagrams and compatible with Jeppeson ChartView

TERRAIN AND CHARTS

In addition to the standard terrain awareness and warning system (TAWS)-A terrain alerting, G5000 comes with integrated terrain, obstacles and navigation databases to provide a comprehensive moving-map navigation display. Along with this, georeferenced FliteCharts® and SafeTaxi® diagrams come preloaded on the system. Or, optionally, ChartView™ service is available for those who prefer georeferenced Jeppesen® charts.

High definition digital radar capabilities with GWX 75

WEATHER RADAR

The all-digital GWX™ 75 weather radar features a high-definition color palette with up to four times more colors than traditional radars for more detailed contouring of storm cells. It combines full antenna stabilization with horizontal scan angles up to 120 degrees to locate and evaluate convective activity. Plus, optional Doppler-enabled turbulence detection and ground clutter suppression enable more precise weather interpretation.

Traffic Alerting

TRAFFIC ALERTING

Our fully TCAS II/ACAS II Change 7.1 compliant GTS 8000 traffic system uses patented CLEAR CAS technology to correlate active and ADS-B “In” traffic to correlate target data and pinpoint threats. ADS-B traffic displays with TargetTrend™ relative motion tracking on the MFD, giving pilots a faster, more intuitive way of judging closure rates and trajectories for these aircraft.

Global Connectivity

GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY

With Connext® global datalink services, you can receive worldwide satellite weather coverage, voice calling, and email and text messaging. Additionally, SiriusXM® satellite weather and audio entertainment links are incorporated into the upgrade1.

Wireless cockpit connectivity via Flight Stream 510 (sold separately)

WIRELESS COCKPIT

Use Connext technology via Flight Stream 510 (sold separately) to stream weather, traffic and more between the G5000 flight deck and your compatible Garmin portables or mobile devices running the Garmin Pilot™ or FltPlan Go apps. Plus, save time by creating your flight plan on your mobile device, then wirelessly uploading it to G5000 during preflight — and by wirelessly transferring aviation database updates from Garmin Pilot to G5000 with Database Concierge.

ADVANCED CAPABILITIES, GREATER AWARENESS

G5000 also expands the aircraft’s capabilities with situational awareness tools that streamline cockpit operations and enhance flight safety.
