Tex­tron Avi­a­tion has in­tro­duced the Garmin G1000 NXI in­te­grated flight deck on its pis­ton-en­gined mod­els: Cess­nas Sky­hawk, Sky­lane and Sta­tion­air, and Beech Bo­nanza G36 and Baron G58.

“We are thrilled to have teamed with Garmin to in­tro­duce the next gen­er­a­tion of the world-renowned G1000 flight deck to our class-lead­ing pis­ton prod­ucts... en­sur­ing our cus­tomers have ac­cess to the lat­est tech­nol­ogy,” said Doug May, Vice-pres­i­dent, Pis­ton Air­craft. “Th­ese en­hance­ments will not only im­prove pi­lot work­load, they will en­hance the over­all flight ex­pe­ri­ence by pro­vid­ing a more con­nected, ef­fi­cient and mod­ern cock­pit.”

The G1000 Nxi’s fea­tures in­clude flight dis­play mod­erni­sa­tion with faster pro­cess­ing times, im­proved graph­ics ren­der­ing and en­hanced read­abil­ity with LED back­light­ing. It also has map over­lay on the HSI, im­proved FMS ca­pa­bil­i­ties to in­clude vis­ual ap­proaches, stan­dard ADS-B in and out, the abil­ity to view VFR and IFR charts on the mov­ing map, and an­i­mated Sir­ius XM weather de­pic­tion. Op­tional en­hance­ments in­clude wire­less data­base up­dates and flight plan uploads with Flight Stream, and en­hanced run­way sit­u­a­tional aware­ness that can help pi­lots avoid run­way in­cur­sions with Sur­face­watch.
