FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training has been selected as the exclusive training provider for Garmin G5000 -equipped Cessna Citation Excel and Citation XLS aircraft.

Pilot initial and recurrent courses are now offered at the FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training Learning Center in Wichita. Differences training is also available using a Garmin G5000 training kiosk. A Garmin G5000-equipped Level D qualified simulator will be added to the training program later this year. 

“We are pleased to provide training for operators of Cessna Citation Excel and Citation XLS aircraft equipped with the new Garmin G5000,” said Rich High, CEO, FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training. “Adding this important new program is another example of our commitment to provide programs that meet the current and future needs of our Customers.”

“FlightSafety Textron Aviation Training is recognized for their training excellence and we are excited to team with them to offer training on the G5000 integrated flight deck in the Cessna Citation Excel and Citation XLS,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “The addition of the level D qualified simulator by FlightSafety, is yet another vote of confidence for the G5000 retrofit in these aircraft.” 

The Garmin G5000 retrofit replaces the Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics.
