Embraer Selects Garmin's G1000 For New BizJets

Garmin has announced that Embraer has selected the Garmin G1000 integrated avionics suite as the avionics package for Embraer's new Very Light Jet and Light Jet business aircraft.

"Embraer is an established and respected leader in aviation, and we are very pleased to have been selected as the avionics supplier," said Gary Kelley, Garmin's vice president, marketing. "This announcement further validates the G1000's flexibility as the industry's leading avionics suite for a wide range of aircraft."

"Embraer is committed to delivering truly revolutionary products to our sophisticated customer base. Garmin has the most integrated system on the market for this class and will bring intuitive cutting-edge technology to the cockpit," said Lu�s Carlos Affonso, Embraer Senior Vice President, Executive Aviation. "Embraer's tailored solution, to be called Prodigy, will offer new levels of integration, display flexibility, and monitoring of aircraft systems."

Garmin's all-glass, fully-integrated avionics suite offers Embraer's Very Light Jet and Light Jet operators more advantages than any other avionics suite in today's market.  The pilot-friendly cockpit features three 12-inch displays - two primary flight displays (PFD) and one multi-function display (MFD). The system integrates all primary flight, navigation, communication, terrain, traffic, weather, engine instrumentation, and crew-alerting system data and presents the composite information in brilliant, sunlight-readable color on high-definition displays. 

  • The 12-inch PFDs and MFD present traditional cockpit information in an integrated fashion on a large-format display, and puts all aircraft-systems monitoring, situational awareness, and flight-planning functions at the pilot's fingertips
  • Garmin's revolutionary new GFC 700 three axis, fully digital, dual channel, fail passive Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS). The GFC 700 features roll, pitch and yaw control, with automatic Pitch Trim and Mach Trim control, and additional features not found in other autopilots
  • A panel-mounted, alpha-numeric keypad will allow pilots to complete FMS, navigation, and communication functions from the keypad, in addition to using controls located around the PFD and MFD. The keypad's ergonomic and straight-forward design decreases pilot workload by offering a faster way to enter FMS data and manage the G1000's integrated communication and navigation.
  • Dual integrated solid-state Attitude and Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), which can align while in motion, including in-flight dynamic restarts
  • Dual integrated RVSM-Compliant Digital Air Data Computers (DADC's)
    Integrated Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) with full screen synoptics and Centralized Maintenance Computer (CMC) like functionality
    Integrated Mode S transponder with Traffic Information Service, which meets European requirements for Elementary and Enhanced Surveillance
  • Dual integrated radio modules that provide oceanic, enroute, terminal, and approach-approved FMS navigation with GPS/WAAS; VHF navigation with ILS; and VHF communication with 16-watt transceivers and 8.33-kHz channel spacing
    Integrated Class-B Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) with worldwide terrain and obstacle database, which does not require an external LRU as with other TAWS systems
  • Integrated satellite weather datalink and digital-quality audio via XM Satellite Radio
  • Dual integrated digital audio control systems
  • Integrated design with reversionary capabilities, allowing all flight-critical data to transfer seamlessly to a single display for added safety during flight
  • Fully digital Airborne Weather RADAR with Horizontal and Vertical scanning capability

Introduced in May 2005, Embraer's Very Light Jet and Light Jet expand Embraer's business aviation product line. The Very Light Jet will accommodate up to eight people, will be certified to operate at 41,000 feet at Mach 0.70 (380 KTAS), and is expected to enter service in mid-2008. The Light Jet is designed to carry up to nine people, will be certified to operate at 45,000 feet at Mach 0.78 (450 KTAS), and is expected to enter service in mid-2009.
