Elliott Aviation, the industry’s leading Garmin G5000 retrofitter, has completed their fifth and sixth retrofit of a Garmin G5000 in a Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP. This includes four delivered at their Moline, IL facility and two at their Des Moines, IA location.
Elliott Aviation has sold more G5000 installations in the 400A/400XP than all other dealers in the world, combined. The installation increases the useful load of the airplane by an average of 200 pounds.
The Garmin G5000 retrofit program for the Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP completely replaces all existing avionics including the autopilot. The instrument panel of the G5000 includes three 12” LCD displays that provide the pilot and copilot with all of the latest, industry-leading technology like synthetic vision, electronic charts, WAAS/LPV, XM weather, engine indication and MFD range rings. In addition, the system meets all December 31st, 2019 FAA ADS-B requirements.
“We are seeing a lot of early success in the program at both our Moline and Des Moines facilities,” said Conrad Theisen, Director of Avionics Sales for Elliott Aviation. “Currently, we do not see demand slowing down and anticipate this program to be the second most successful avionics retrofit programs in the history aviation, behind the Garmin G1000 retrofit for the King Air.”
