Elliott leads for Excel and XLS G5000 installations
Elliott Aviation currently has 15 additional Garmin G5000 systems for the Citation Excel and XLS scheduled for installation, having already completed three jobs of this nature.

MRO and Garmin retrofitter Elliott Aviation has delivered three Garmin G5000-equipped Citation Excel/XLS aircraft in recent weeks. Elliott has now notched up three delivered and 15 scheduled Garmin G5000 installations for the Citation Excel/XLS.

The Citation Excel/XLS retrofit replaces all existing Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics, including the autopilot and flight director. The retrofit has WAAS/LPV, ADS-B, XM weather, electronic charts, SafeTaxi, engine monitor data and emergency descent mode. It also has optional synthetic vision, turbulence detection, SurfaceWatch, underspeed protection, Chartview, CPDLC and lightning and hail prediction.

In addition to the Excel and XLS Garmin G5000 retrofit, Elliott Aviation has installed over 25 G5000 systems in the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP and over 350 G1000/G1000 NXi systems in King Airs. It says that it has completed more Garmin full cockpit retrofits than all other dealers in the world combined.

“The demand for the Garmin G5000 avionics suite in the Citation Excel and XLS is very strong and all indications show this programme being a tremendous success,” says VP of avionics programmes and operational logistics Mark Wilken. “We're proud of the partnership we have built with Garmin and look forward to continuing to lead the industry in Garmin retrofits.”

Elliott Aviation is completing installations at both its headquarters in Moline, Illinois and in Des Moines, Iowa.
