G1000® NXi upgrade for the Cessna Citation Mustang


OLATHE, Kan. /October 4, 2017/Business Wire — Garmin International, Inc. a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today announced an addition to its portfolio of integrated flight deck upgrades to now include the G1000 NXi for the Cessna Citation Mustang. The G1000 NXi offers modern displays that boast significant performance improvements alongside a comprehensive feature set that incorporates wireless cockpit connectivity, split-screen capability, SurfaceWatch™, visual approaches, map overlay on the horizontal situation indicator (HSI) and more. The Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade in the Citation Mustang is targeted for approval in the second half of 2018 and will be available from Textron Aviation Service Centers.

“This announcement is very special to me because in March 2003, the Citation Mustang was the first-ever announced program to adopt the G1000 integrated flight deck and today, we’re excited to offer the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade to over 470 of these aircraft,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation marketing and sales. “That announcement with Cessna in 2003 publicly launched the Integrated Flight Deck business for Garmin, for which we are forever grateful. Since that time, there are now 65 aircraft models certified with Garmin Integrated Flight Deck systems from 26 different aircraft manufacturers.”

A robust feature set accompanies the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade for the Mustang. Aiding in situational awareness, SurfaceWatch runway monitoring technology provides visual and aural cues to help prevent pilots from taking off or landing on a taxiway, on a runway that is too short or on the wrong runway based on performance data entered during preflight. Visual and audible runway distance remaining annunciations are also available via SurfaceWatch. Additionally, visual approaches integrated within the G1000 NXi system offer pilots enhanced guidance in visual flight conditions based on a three-degree glideslope from the threshold of the runway. Pilots can select the runway for which they have been cleared to land, set customized minimums, select vectors or straight-in for the final approach intercept and fly a visual approach coupled with the autopilot.

Geographical map overlay within the HSI is available on the primary flight display (PFD), which also supports the display of NEXRAD, Flight Information Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather, weather radar, SafeTaxi® airport diagrams, traffic, terrain and more. For example, pilots can display SafeTaxi on the HSI map while preparing flight plan information on the multi-function display (MFD). Several additional features include access to IFR and VFR charts, split-screen functionality and more.

Available as an option, the G1000 NXi system supports the display of various Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) In benefits, including traffic and subscription-free FIS-B weather. Connext® wireless connectivity unlocks more capabilities from within the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck and further extends ADS-B In benefits. Available as a standard feature, Flight Stream 510 and Connext technology enables Database Concierge, the wireless transfer of aviation databases from the Garmin Pilot™ app on a mobile device to the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck. Additional features include two-way flight plan transfer, the sharing of traffic, weather, GPS information, back-up attitude information and more, between G1000 NXi and the Garmin Pilot or ForeFlight Mobile applications.

Modern, state-of-the-art processors provide Mustang owners and operators smoother panning throughout the displays and faster map rendering within the G1000 NXi. The flight displays initialize in seconds so pilots have immediate access to frequencies, flight plan data and more, saving valuable time in the cockpit. The G1000 NXi integrated flight deck also incorporates contemporary animations and new LED back-lighting, offering increased display brightness and clarity, reduced power consumption and improved dimming performance.

Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade on the Mustang is targeted for approval in the second half of 2018. Mustang owners and operators can easily upgrade to the G1000 NXi with minimal aircraft down time and disruption of the panel as the displays preserve the same footprint and connectors, so panel and wiring modifications are not required. The G1000 NXi also comes with a two-year warranty, which is supported by Garmin’s award-winning avionics product support team.
