Garmin will offer a G1000 avionics suite retrofit for the Cessna CitationJet after completing a supplemental type certificate programme.

The G1000 suite on the CitationJet comprises a large 12in multifunction display (MFD) and two 10.4in primary flight displays (PFD).

Synthetic vision technology (SVT) for a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles, traffic and the runway environment also features on the PFD, which replicates view outside the cockpit on a clear day.

It also includes Garmin’s GFC 700 three-axis, fully digital, dual channel, and fail passive automatic flight control system (AFCS).

The GFC 700 features coupled wide-area augmentation system (WAAS) approaches, vertical navigation and flight level change.

The avionics suite further includes FMS with dual WAAS LPV, class-B terrain awareness and warning system, dual integrated solid-state attitude and heading reference systems, and dual integrated digital air data computers.

Garmin expects to receive the STC for the Cessna CitationJet in early second quarter of 2010.
