OLATHE, Kan. – Garmin International Inc. in Olathe, Kan., is introducing the G700 TXi touchscreen avionics flight display for the Cessna Citation business jet. The G700 TXi meets the certification requirements of Part 23 Class IV and Part 25 transport category aircraft.
The initial supplemental type certificate (STC) for the G700 TXi flight display will be approved for select Cessna Citation II/SII and Citation V aircraft, is available from JETTECH, and can be installed across the Garmin dealer network.
This certification of the G700 TXi is composed of a single or dual 10.6-inch flight display with a bright, LCD touchscreen design and features dual concentric knobs.
Because the G700 TXi is paired with dual GTN 650/750 touchscreen navigators, pilots receive flight management system (FMS) functionality through an intuitive touchscreen interface. The G700 TXi also integrates with these navigators, including coupled LPV/WAAS approach guidance, as well as the option to display vertical navigation (VNAV) guidance to fly complex RNAV arrival procedures.
New features and optional capabilities of the G700 TXi flight display include:
-- HSI mapping that offers a multifunction display-like perspective map view on the PFD, helping pilots to visualize traffic, terrain, and weather;
-- customizable crew profiles that enable pilots to configure and save settings such as map configurations and audio volume levels;
-- synthetic vision technology that is standard and uses graphics modeling to present a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles, traffic, and the runway;
-- TCAS II resolution advisory (RA) display that offers pilots visual and aural instructions to avoid immediate traffic conflicts;
-- TAWS-A and TAWS-B that are available as options;
-- global datalink weather products when paired with the optional GSR 56;
-- support for reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM) operations;
-- viewable Garmin FliteCharts terminal approach procedures or optional Jeppesen approach charts;
-- Connext wireless cockpit connectivity with added Database Concierge and flight plan transferring via Flight Stream 510; and
-- standard ADS-B In/Out display, featuring patented TargetTrend and TerminalTraffic.
