Garmin G5000 Takes Aim at ‘Big Iron’
After establishing itself as a leader in general aviation avionics, Garmin International is taking on the “big iron” with the introduction of its G5000 integrated flight deck for the Part 25 business aircraft and helicopter market. “We’re eager to serve the Part 25 market and are confident that our fully integrated flight deck will exceed the expectations of flight departments and aircraft manufacturers in this segment,” said Gary Kelley, vice president of marketing. “Like other Garmin products, the G5000’s architecture is designed with future growth and technologies in mind. Customers and aircraft manufacturers will be able to add significant capabilities to the system in the future, often without requiring additional hardware.” According to the company, the system will combine Garmin’s dual multi-sensor flight management system (FMS), touchscreen vehicle management units, and multi-pane cockpit displays.
