Those courses are now available at the FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training Learning Center in Wichita, where differences training is available using a Garmin G5000 training kiosk. A level-D qualified simulator equipped with Garmin G5000 will be added later this year, according to FlightSafety. “Adding this important new program is another example of our commitment to provide programs that meet the current and future needs of our customers,” said FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training CEO Rich High. The G5000 retrofit replaces the Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics and offers fully integrated ADS-B Out, as well as PBN/RNP 0.3 with LPV/APV approach capability. It also supports synthetic vision technology, enhanced situational awareness, datalink weather, and Link 2000+ and CPDLC support for terminal and en route operations. “FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training is recognized for its training excellence, and we are excited to team with them to offer training on the G5000 integrated flight deck in the Cessna Citation Excel and Citation XLS,” said Garmin v-p of aviation sales and marketing Carl Wolf. “The addition of the level-D qualified simulator by FlightSafety is yet another vote of confidence for the G5000 retrofit in these aircraft.” Business Aviation
