LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce its Satellite facility in St. Paul, Minn., recently installed its third—the company’s fifth--Garmin G5000 integrated flight deck in a customer’s Citation Excel aircraft. After removing the entire cockpit, the crew in St. Paul installed the G5000, which includes bright, high-resolution, color displays, touchscreen interfaces with audible feedback, Automatic Flight Guidance and Control Systems, GPS, Synthetic Vision System (SVS), and real-time weather, chart, traffic, and terrain information on the large moving maps that provide pilots with a great deal of situational awareness.
“The customer selected our facility because of our competitive downtime and the high level of experience of our technicians,” says Manager of the Duncan Aviation St. Paul Satellite Tom Lieser.
The customer operates other Citation XLS aircraft equipped with the Garmin G5000 and wanted this aircraft to match the rest of their fleet and take advantage of all the benefits the G5000 system has to offer.
“It’s great to be able to offer operators an avionics system that equips the airplane with the latest avionics components,” says Duncan Aviation’s Regional Avionics Sales Manager Michael Kussatz. “The Garmin G5000 is a fully integrated avionics package that features less cluttered instrumentation while simultaneously giving pilots a great deal more situational awareness of their environment.”
“We continue to augment our team here in St. Paul with technicians from our national Satellite network and from the full-service facility in Lincoln, Neb.,” says Lieser. “With each installation, our technicians gain more experience on these large and complex installations.”
This is one of the greatest benefits of bringing your aircraft to any Duncan Aviation location: We have the ability to utilize our talented technicians located throughout the U.S. for installations and also in support of your aircraft post-installation.
“We’re seeing more and more interest in the system as operators are looking for a way to start over with a newer system that isn’t going to continue racking up repair costs and downtime. The Garmin G5000 integrated flight deck is what operators are looking for to gain reliability and more capability,” says Kussatz.
