EASA Approves The G5000 For The Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP

SUN-AIR Of Scandinavia A/S, Franchisee Of British Airways, Selects The G5000 Integrated Flight Deck

EASA has approved the G5000 integrated flight deck for the Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP aircraft. The G5000 modernizes the cockpit, increases aircraft utility, offers significant weight savings and provides operators with a solution to fulfill global next generation airspace initiatives. Garmin is also pleased to announce that SUN-AIR airlines of Scandinavia has selected the G5000 integrated flight deck upgrade for their Beechjet 400A aircraft. SUN-AIR Technic, the maintenance division of SUN-AIR, is also an authorized Garmin dealer and will be completing the first installation of the Beechjet G5000 upgrade in Europe.

“We believe the G5000 upgrade is the only sensible option to future-proof our Beechjet fleet - it provides a lower operating cost, significantly reduces weight and makes us compliant with all of the upcoming requirements,” said Kristoffer Sundberg, CEO SUN-AIR airlines. “We are also excited for our maintenance brand SUN-AIR Technic, to grow from doing G1000 installations to do the first European G5000 installation in-house, with the continued excellent support from Garmin.”

The G5000 integrated flight deck modernization program for the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP features three high-resolution 12-inch flight displays situated alongside dual touchscreen display controllers that serve as the primary crew interface to the system, simplifying operation and ease of control of the flight deck. Landscape flight displays offer multi-pane capability, allowing up to six independent pages to be displayed simultaneously. Allowing for more baggage, passenger and fuel load flexibility, the G5000 flight deck is estimated to provide a weight savings of 150 pounds or more compared to the current system. Superior flight control technology is provided by Garmin’s integrated autopilot within the G5000 system.

The fully digital, dual channel, fail passive Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) offers optimized performance throughout the aircraft’s flight envelope. The G5000 system supports a wide range of capabilities including coupled wide area augmentation system (WAAS/SBAS) and PBN/RNP 0.3 with LPV/APV approaches, vertical navigation (VNAV) and flight level change (FLC) modes. Safety enhancing autopilot underspeed protection (USP) is optional and allows the autopilot to assist with airspeed management. Coupled go-arounds are also enabled by this technology, greatly reducing pilot workload.

The G5000 integrated flight deck for the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP also supports additional options:

  • Synthetic vision technology (SVT), which presents a 3D depiction of terrain, obstacles, traffic and the runway environment.
  • Aircraft receive a fully integrated EASA and FAA rule-compliant ADS-B Out solution.
  • Connext services, including access to worldwide weather, voice calling and text messaging are available via the G5000.
  • SVT works seamlessly with TAWS alert coloring and voice alerts; TAWS-B alerting is standard, while TAWS-A is optional, providing alerts such as excessive closure rate and large glideslope deviations.

The GWX 70 weather radar is included as standard, offering four-color storm cell display, as well as Turbulence Detection, Altitude Compensated Tilt and Ground Clutter Suppression as options.
