Learjet officials choose Garmin G5000 flight deck for Learjet 70, Learjet 75 business jets

Learjet

OLATHE, Kan., 18 May 2012. Officials at Learjet, a subsidiary of Bombardier, have selected the Garmin G5000 integrated avionics system from Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:GRMN) and a provider of satellite navigation systems in Olathe, Kan., for the Vision Flight Deck in the new Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 business jets.

Garmin’s G5000 system brings high-resolution, widescreen displays and touch-screen controls, as well as new safety features, to the new Bombardier Learjet models. Two touch-screen controllers provide a centralized and intuitive crew interface to the system, giving pilots rapid access to the flight information they want; further, the graphical icons, audio and visual feedback, and animation reduce the potential for crew input entry errors, says a spokesperson.


The Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft cockpits feature three high-resolution, wide-aspect-ratio displays. The displays’ multi-pane capability effectively doubles the number of presentations the crew can control and view simultaneously; as a result, primary flight information can be displayed to the pilot and co-pilot along with four other windows for viewing moving maps, charts, checklists, aircraft system synoptics pages, TAWS, TCAS, flight planning information, live weather radar, and other broadcast weather products.



Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) delivers near-lifelike 3D depictions of terrain, obstacles, traffic, and runway environment so the displayed image replicates what pilots would see outside the cockpit on a clear day. SVT alerts pilots of potential ground hazards by displaying terrain and obstacles which pose a threat to the aircraft with appropriate TAWS alert coloring, as well as voice alerts.
