FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training has been selected as the exclusive training provider for Garmin G5000-equipped Cessna Citation Excel and Citation XLS aircraft. Pilot initial and recurrent courses are now offered at its Learning Center in Wichita. Differences training is also available using a Garmin G5000 training kiosk, and a Garmin G5000-equipped Level D qualified simulator will be added to the training programme later this year.

FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training CEO Rich Hall says: “Adding this important new programme is another example of our commitment to provide programmes that meet the current and future needs of our customers.” Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing Carl Wolf adds: “The addition is yet another vote of confidence for the G5000 retrofit in these aircraft.”

The Garmin G5000 retrofit replaces the Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics. It offers a fully integrated ADS-B Out solution that complies with FAA and EASA requirements. It also features PBN/RNP 0.3 with LPV/APV approach capability and supports a variety of options that includes SVT synthetic vision technology, enhanced situational awareness with SurfaceWatch, Link 2000+ and CPDLC support for terminal and enroute operations, as well as Datalink weather.
