    Yingling Aviation Announces New Garmin G5000 Integrated Flight Deck

     Installation Program for Citation Excel and XLS

    Textron Affiliate Is Also An Authorized Garmin IFD facility and Industry Leader in Garmin Glass Panel Installations

                Wichita, KS— Yingling Aviation, which has installed over 250 Garmin glass panels in Textron-produced turbine aircraft, has announced the launch of a new  program to install the Garmin G5000 integrated glass flight deck (IFD) on Citation Excel and XLS aircraft.  An authorized Garmin IFD facility, Yingling can leverage its extensive experience retrofitting Textron turbine powered aircraft Garmin avionics. 

    “This new STC from Garmin is what the market has been asking for,” noted Stuart Ashenden, Yingling’s Avionics Department Manager.  “It obviously

    meets the needs and desires of NextGen operators. We are already taking firm reservations and scheduling installations three months in advance,” he added.

     Yingling also recently expanded its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities with the addition of four more service hangars adjacent to its existing site. Included are an upgraded paint hangar, paint prep and curing area, and more space to address its growing interior and avionics departments.  “We’ve just completed the construction of an all-new jet/turbine aircraft maintenance hangar north of our original complex. Our operations now include a total of nine service hangars and over 120 employees.

    “These additions have not only allowed us to provide MRO services to the growing base of Citation and King Air customers we have acquired since adding this segment a few years ago, they also give us plenty of capacity to provide rapid and efficient response to Excel and XLS operators who desire to upgrade to Garmin G5000 avionics,” said Jerry Pickett VP of Business Development. 

    “We knew there was a vacancy in the market for a MRO with significant customer-centric practices, and the response has been beyond our expectations. We are extremely fortunate to have an exceptional base of talented professionals in all areas of our operation—especially when it comes to working on Textron aircraft. The expertise of our Wichita-based staff when it comes to Cessna and Beechcraft products is arguably the best and most-experienced in the industry,” he pointed out.

    The Garmin G5000 avionics suite offers operators of the Cessna Citation Excel and Citation XLS series aircraft a great option for making their favorite jets even more productive – with the very latest in satellite-based navigation capabilities, digital flight management tools, NextGen/SESAR/EUROCONTROL operational support for ADS-B and Data Comm/Link 2000+, as well as graphical display technologies for enhanced safety and crew coordination. “The new G5000 glass upgrade suite not only features the most intuitive, fully integrated pilot interface ever seen in this class of avionics equipment, but, typically, it also replaces enough outdated wiring and hardware in the aircraft to provide an estimated weight savings of 200 pounds or more. That translates into significant extra payload and fuel planning flexibility. This upgrade reduces the cost required to maintain older avionics and addresses obsolescence. It really breathes new life and capability into the airframe,” Pickett concluded.

    Combining three landscape-oriented 14” flight displays with two digital touchscreen display/controllers that serve as the primary crew interface for the system, the Garmin G5000 flight deck puts a wealth of capability at the pilot’s fingertips. The wide-format flight displays can function in multi-pane mode, allowing multiple pages (or reversionary PFD/MFD) to be viewed side-by-side on the same screen. With this capability, pilots can simultaneously view maps, charts, checklists, TAWS-A, TCAS II, flight plans, weather, video input and more – without cluttering or compromising the clean visual layout. Plus, all engine indications and crew alerting messages are integrated into the flight deck, providing crews with better awareness to critical operating parameters. In addition, the G5000 system for the Citation Excel/XLS also features a digital, dual-channel automatic flight control system (AFCS), which supports capabilities like fully coupled go-arounds, emergency descent mode and other sophisticated autopilot features.

    For added situational awareness, optional Garmin SVTTM synthetic vision technology is available on the flight displays. Other G5000 package options include advanced weather radar capabilities such as turbulence detection, ground clutter suppression, as well as windshear and traffic alerting with available TCAS/ACAS II functionality. Garmin ConnextTM global datalink services, including worldwide satellite weather coverage, voice calling, email and text messaging, SiriusXM® satellite weather and audio entertainment links are also available.
