Go flying with new G3000 and G1000 retrofit for CitationJet
Today is a huge day for Garmin’s aviation team because we announced the G3000 and the G1000 retrofit for the Cessna CitationJet at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Orlando, Florida. The G3000 is Garmin’s first touchscreen controlled flightdeck for Part 23 turbine aircraft. The hallmark of the system is that it’s simple to use. It incorporates icons similar to what you would find on a desktop computer, and it has common sense functions like “back” and “home” that lets pilots quickly retrace their steps. Since we’ve delivered several million consumer-based touchscreen products, we were able to leverage that knowledge while designing the G3000. One of the unique aspects of having touchscreen in an airplane is that there is bound to be turbulence. Therefore, the G3000 has a patent pending, infrared touchscreen technology, audio and visual feedback, and unique icon animation to help pilots know exactly how the system is responding to their input.
The G1000 retrofit for the Cessna CitationJet will be available exclusively through Cessna’s company owned Citation Service Centers. The STC is expected in the second quarter of 2010, and it will let CitationJet owners (model 525, serial number 0001-0359) fly with advantages of the G1000.
