Duncan has installed a fifth Garmin G5000
Duncan Aviation engineers removed the entire cockpit to install the Garmin G5000 system which includes high resolution touchscreen interfaces and automatic flight guidance and control systems.
The customer operates other Citation XLS aircraft equipped with the Garmin G5000 and wanted this aircraft to match the rest of their fleet and take advantage of all the benefits the system has to offer.

Duncan Aviation has announced that its satellite facility in St. Paul, Minnesota, recently installed its third, and the Duncan's fifth, Garmin G5000 integrated flight deck in a customer's Citation Excel aircraft.

After removing the entire cockpit, the crew in St. Paul installed the system, which includes bright, high resolution, colour displays, touchscreen interfaces with audible feedback, automatic flight guidance and control systems, GPS, synthetic vision system and real time weather, chart, traffic and terrain information on the large moving maps.

“The customer selected our facility because of our competitive downtime and the high level of experience of our technicians,” says manager of the Duncan Aviation St. Paul satellite Tom Lieser.

The customer operates other Citation XLS aircraft equipped with the Garmin G5000 and wanted this aircraft to match the rest of its fleet and take advantage of all the benefits the system has to offer.

“It's great to be able to offer operators an avionics system that equips the airplane with the latest avionics components,” says Duncan Aviation's regional avionics sales manager Michael Kussatz. “The Garmin G5000 is a fully integrated avionics package that features less cluttered instrumentation while simultaneously giving pilots a great deal more situational awareness of their environment.”

“We continue to augment our team here in St. Paul with technicians from our national satellite network and from the full service facility in Lincoln, Nebraska,” says Lieser.
