Textron Aviation completes first Garmin G5000 installation in a Brazil-based Citation XLS at Orlando Service Center

Textron Aviation today announced it has completed the first installation of the Garmin G5000 integrated flight deck in a Brazil-based Cessna Citation XLS business jet since receiving Supplemental Type Certification.

The G5000 avionics upgrade, performed at Textron Aviation’s Orlando Service Center, modernizes the cockpit, solves parts obsolescence and addresses mandate requirements, while also offering a lower cost of operation.

Beechcraft, Cessna and Hawker customers receive factory-direct support, maintenance and modifications by Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. company, through a global network of service and part centers, mobile service units and 24/7 1CALL AOG support.

“The legendary Citation 560XL series continues to be the most successful business jet family in the world,” said Brian Rohloff, senior vice president, Customer Support.

“With more than 100 of the Cessna Citation Excel and XLS fleet now flying G5000, it’s a significant milestone to have completed the first installation for an aircraft in Brazil.”
