OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the certification and availability of the G1000®
NXi integrated flight deck upgrade for the Cessna Citation Mustang. The
G1000 NXi offers a number of new and enhanced features, including
wireless cockpit connectivity, split-screen capability, SurfaceWatch™,
visual approaches, map overlay within 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
available immediately through Textron Aviation Service Centers.
“In 2003, the Citation Mustang was the first aircraft to announce the
G1000 integrated flight deck and today, we’re excited to offer the
next-generation G1000 NXi upgrade to the Mustang – an aircraft that
defined the very light jet category,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of
aviation sales and marketing. “Today’s milestone positions the Mustang
for continued success as we continue to provide new, unprecedented
levels of performance, capability and reliability to some of the most
loyal Garmin customers and their aircraft.”
A robust feature set accompanies the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck
upgrade for the Citation 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 flight plan
data entered during preflight. Visual and audible runway distance
remaining annunciations are also available via SurfaceWatch.
Visual approach capability integrated within the G1000 NXi system also
offers 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.
HSI mapping is available on the primary flight display (PFD), which also
supports the overlay of SiriusXM aviation weather, Flight Information
Service-Broadcast (FIS-B) weather, weather radar, SafeTaxi® airport
diagrams, traffic, terrain and more1. For example, pilots can
display SafeTaxi on the HSI map while utilizing the multi-function
display (MFD) for charts or other tasks. Available as an option, the
G1000 NXi system also supports the display of various Automatic
Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) In benefits on the flight
displays. Customers also have the option to upgrade to a Bluetooth®
audio panel. Additional G1000 NXi features include the option to view
IFR and VFR charts, split-screen functionality and more.
Connext® cockpit connectivity with added Database Concierge
and wireless flight plan transferring is also available with the G1000
NXi. Using a compatible tablet or smart phone, pilots can easily upload
and sync flight plans and database information using the Garmin Pilot™
app. Additional features include the streaming of traffic, weather, GPS
information, back-up attitude information and more1, from the
G1000 NXi to the Garmin Pilot, FltPlan Go or ForeFlight Mobile
Modern, state-of-the-art processors support 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 and flight plan data. The G1000 NXi integrated flight deck
also offers new LED back-lighting, offering increased display brightness
and clarity, reduced power consumption and improved dimming performance.
The G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade for the Citation Mustang is
available immediately through Textron Aviation Service Centers. Citation
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 minimized. The upgraded components of the G1000 NXi
also come with a two-year limited warranty, which is supported by
Garmin’s award-winning avionics product support team. For additional
