Beechjet FB TW

We are working toward completion of the G5000 certification for the Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP aircraft. Several milestones, including System architecture and installation details, High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF), Lightning and Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) testing to support group approval, have been completed as part of this program. Considered a significant endeavor in the certification process, autopilot development testing is also near complete, indicating this program is in its final stages. Additionally, a new early adopter incentive program provides substantial savings on safety enhancing G5000 options for the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP.

Installation and system architecture details of the G5000 modernization program for the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP have been completed, which is representative of the avionics suite entering its final stages of certification. HIRF and lightning testing, as well as RVSM testing required for group approval, contribute to the many milestones that have been achieved as the development program continues to progress. Additionally, autopilot feature development has been finalized and verification testing is near complete, further signifying the G5000 Integrated Flight Deck (IFD) is nearing certification.

Owners and operators placing an order for the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP G5000 Integrated Flight Deck upgrade by March 31, 2016, may take advantage of substantial savings on safety enhancing G5000 options, including Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) and Turbulence Detection for the GWX™ 70 weather radar. Purchased separately, these two options are valued at $46,990. Garmin is offering a Premier Tech Package for this G5000 retrofit that combines both technology options for $29,990, a savings of $17,000 off of individual pricing and for a limited time, customers placing an order for the G5000 Flight Deck by March 31, 2016, can receive the Premier Tech Package for a special promotional price of $9,990. This represents a savings of $20,000 off of the already discounted Premier Tech Package, or a savings of $37,000 if these options were purchased separately.
