Elliott Aviation announced a $3,000 per day guaranteed four-week downtime on standalone Citation Excel/XLS Garmin G5000 retrofits. Elliott Aviation has delivered 12 Garmin G5000 equipped Citation Excel/XLS aircraft already. In addition, Elliott Aviation offers free avionics familiarization with all Garmin G5000 installations at their headquarters in Moline, IL.
The Garmin G5000 for the Citation Excel/XLS replaces all existing Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics, including the autopilot and flight director. The retrofit has WAAS/LPV, ADS-B, XM weather, electronic charts, SafeTaxi, engine monitor data, and emergency descent mode. It also has optional synthetic vision, turbulence detection, SurfaceWatch, underspeed protection, Chartview, CPDLC, and lightning and hail prediction.
Elliott Aviation says they have completed more Garmin full cockpit retrofits than all other dealers in the world, combined. They have installed more than 50 total Garmin G5000 systems in the Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP and Citation Excel/XLS, and over 350 Garmin G1000/G1000 NXi systems in King Airs.
“As we continue to lead the industry in Garmin G5000 retrofits, we wanted to offer customers the peace-of-mind that comes with a guaranteed four-week downtime,” said Conrad Theisen, director of Avionics Sales at Elliott Aviation.
