JetSupport, based in Amsterdam and Oberpfaffenhofen, recently performed an extensive upgrade on a Citation 525. The aircraft was previously equipped with legacy equipment, which faced obsolescence and operational limitations.
The newly installed flight deck contains dual Garmin G600TXi flight displays, the recently certified GFC-600 autopilot, a modern stand-by GI-275 indicator and a new Garmin radar. Combined with dual GTN, this installation provides all operational features required to operate in today's modern airspace with increased situational awareness and the added bonus of wireless data loading.
The GFC 600 digital autopilot delivers superior in-flight characteristics and new operational capabilities such as autopilot-coupled VNAV descent, auto Course Deviation Indicator switching and fully coupled go-around capability. Further to this, the entire installation brings additional weight savings through the removal of the power inverter circuitry used in the legacy autopilot system.
