Garmin G5000 Flight Deck Selected For Learjet 70 And Learjet 75

Widescreen Displays And Touchscreen Technology For The Newest Lears

Learjet has selected the Garmin G5000 integrated avionics system for the Vision Flight Deck used in the new Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 business jets. The G5000 system incorporates high-resolution widescreen displays and touchscreen controls to bring leading edge technology, new safety features and outstanding reliability to these new Bombardier Learjet models.

“For nearly 50 years, Learjet aircraft have been a symbol of innovation, efficiency and performance and the G5000’s cutting edge technology and reliability make it the perfect complement to this iconic business jet family,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “We’re thrilled to partner with Bombardier on the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft to provide operators with greatly enhanced situational awareness and the best possible flight experience.”

The Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft cockpits feature three high-resolution, wide aspect ratio displays. All of the displays have multi-pane display capability that effectively doubles the number of different presentations that the crew can control and view at the same time. This allows for primary flight information to be displayed to both the pilot and copilot along with four other viewing windows capable of showing moving maps, charts, checklists, aircraft system synoptics pages, TAWS, TCAS, flight planning information, live weather radar, and other broadcast weather products.

Two touchscreen controllers provide a centralized and intuitive crew interface to the system, giving pilots rapid access to the flight information they want. The graphical icons, audio and visual feedback, and animation reduce the potential for crew input entry errors. On the G5000’s widescreen displays, Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) presents near life-like 3D depictions of terrain, obstacles, traffic and runway environment so that the image on the display replicates what pilots would see outside the cockpit on a clear day. SVT works seamlessly to alert 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.

The G5000 system also offers many other situational awareness and safety of flight features. Entry into service for the Learjet 70 and Learjet 75 aircraft is scheduled for 2013.
