Bombardier Business Aircraft (Bombardier) has partnered with Garmin to launch upgraded avionics for the Bombardier Vision flight deck onboard the Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 business aircrafts.

These jets are already equipped with advanced cockpits, powered by the Garmin G5000 avionics suite.

The upgrade is expected to significantly enhance the aircraft’s capabilities as well as provide a platform for future technological enhancements.

Bombardier Business Aircraft worldwide sales and marketing senior vice-president Peter Likoray said: “Avionics is one of the fastest-evolving systems on a modern aircraft and the upgrade will make sure our Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 business jet customers remain ahead of the curve.

“The G5000 update perfectly enhances the performance and reliability of this iconic business jet family.”

“The Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 aircraft are the definitive business productivity tools for today and tomorrow.”

Bombardier will be carrying out the upgrade on new Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 aircraft or as a retrofit package.

The upgrade of the Bombardier Vision flight deck with Garmin G5000 avionics suite is expected to offer a wide range of improvements including climb, cruise and descent vertical navigation, enhanced take-off and landing performance calculations.
