Garmin completes first flight of the Beechjet 400A featuring G5000
Garmin International celebrated the maiden flight of the Beechjet 400A featuring the G5000 Integrated Flight Deck. This marks a significant step towards completion of the G5000 upgrade for the popular Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP. The G5000 modernizes the cockpit, increases aircraft utility, provides additional weight savings, exceeds NextGen requirements and solves parts obsolescence, giving operators superior avionics capability and increasing value of their aircraft. The Garmin G5000 Integrated Flight Deck for the Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP features three high-resolution 12-inch flight displays along with two touch screen display/controllers, which serve as the primary crew interface to the system. Charts are available across all three displays, including geo-referenced Garmin SafeTaxi airport diagrams, FliteCharts terminal procedures or optional Garmin ChartView powered by Jeppesen. The G5000 offers PBN/RNP 0.3 with LPV/APV approach capability, so owners and operators have access to even more airports throughout the world.
