Garmin International is expanding its portfolio of integrated flight deck upgrades to include the G1000 NXi for the Cessna Citation Mustang light jet.

It expects to receive the Supplemental Type Certificate for the Mustang in the second half of 2018. The upgrade will be available from Textron Aviation Service Centers.

The G1000 NXi boasts modern displays with performance improvements and a comprehensive set of features that includes wireless cockpit connectivity, split-screen capability, SurfaceWatch for runway monitoring, visual approaches, map overlay in the horizontal situation indicator and other items.

Textron Aviation announced the end of the Mustang program in May. More than 470 aircraft are in the Mustang fleet.

“This announcement is very special to me because in March 2003, the Citation Mustang was the first-ever announced program to adopt the G1000 integrated flight deck and today, we’re excited to offer the G1000 NXi integrated flight deck upgrade to over 470 of these aircraft,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation marketing and sales. “That announcement with Cessna in 2003 publicly launched the Integrated Flight Deck business for Garmin, for which we are forever grateful. Since that time, there are now 65 aircraft models certified with Garmin Integrated Flight Deck systems from 26 different aircraft manufacturers.”
