Textron Aviation has introduced the Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck to new production Cessna Grand Caravan EX and Cessna Caravan aircraft, the company announced on 24 July.

The company has received FAA and EASA certification for the Garmin G1000 NXi-equipped Caravan platform, allowing deliveries to commence in the US and Europe.

The G1000 NXi avionics platform is a modernised flight display with faster processing, improved graphics and enhanced readability with LED back-lighting. It provides map overlay on the HSI, improved flight management system capabilities to include visual approaches, standard ADS-B out and optional ADS-B in, the ability to view visual flight rules and instrument flight rules charts on the moving map and animated Sirius XM weather depiction. As an option, SurfaceWatch can also provide enhanced runway situational awareness.

Rob Scholl, SVP, sales and marketing, Textron Aviation, said: ‘The Cessna Caravan product line continues to lead the modern single-engine utility turboprop segment, and introducing the new Garmin G1000 NXi avionics further confirms our commitment to investing in this proven and versatile platform.

‘The Caravan platform has the capability to perform an impressive range of challenging missions and now with a more streamlined and connected experience in the cockpit, pilots will have the modern design and technologies at their fingertips.’
