Bombardier Business Aircraft and Garmin have announced an avionics upgrade for the Bombardier Vision flight deck on the Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 aircraft. The planes are already equipped with the Garmin G5000 avionics suite.

The upgrade, currently in flight testing, aims to enable customers to access the most favourable routes. It will also pave the way for future technological enhancements, the partners say.

The updated avionics suite will be offered on new Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 business jets, with a retrofit on in-service models also available.

The update to the Garmin G5000 avionics suite on the Bombardier Vision flight deck promises “workload-reducing improvements”, including climb, cruise and descent vertical navigation, and enhanced take-off and landing performance.

In addition, FANS 1/A+, which will enable customers to access the most efficient and favourable routes, will be offered as an option.

“Avionics is one of the fastest-evolving systems on a modern aircraft and the upgrade will make sure our Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 business jet customers remain ahead of the curve,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“The Learjet 75 and Learjet 70 aircraft are the definitive business productivity tools for today and tomorrow,” he added.
