In 2010, Garmin introduced the G5000H as a premier Integrated Flight Deck for turbine aircraft. The cornerstone of the G5000H is Garmin’s intuitive touchscreen Flight Management System (FMS) and Vehicle Management System. This Man-Machine Interface (MMI) raises the bar in ease of use, safety, and situational awareness for business and transport category aircraft. In addition to the simple and powerful user interface, the G5000H utilizes new products and software that place the flight deck on the leading edge of avionics innovation.

Since 2010, Garmin has partnered with business and rotorcraft aircraft manufacturers to bring the G5000H to more complex Part 25 and Part 29 aircraft. In 2013, the G5000H was certified on the Learjet 70 & 75 and Cessna Citation Sovereign+, followed by the Cessna Citation X+ in 2014. In 2012, Garmin announced that the Bell Helicopter 525 “Relentless” was the launch platform for the new Garmin G5000H avionics suite for Part 29 helicopters. Now, ACE and Garmin will bring the same advanced capability to the UH-60/S-70 family of helicopters.

Flight Displays

With one of the most intuitive pilot-vehicle interfaces (PVI) available on the market, the G5000H provides the next generation of pilots the ability to more efficiently manage and control navigation and communication systems, traffic surveillance systems, flight management systems, electronic checklist entries, and remote audio/intercom systems, as well as optional charting, traffic, weather and custom display options.

The G5000H advanced widescreen aspect ratio displays provide a panoramic view of Garmin’s renowned SVT™ Synthetic Vision Technology. Using the system’s terrain alerting database, SVT enhances situational awareness by creating a “virtual reality” depiction of ground and water features, obstacles, and traffic in proximity to the aircraft. It provides a realistic picture of what lies beyond the nose of the helicopter – even in solid IMC or night VMC situations.

Touchscreen Controllers

Utilizing Garmin GTC 570 Touchscreen controllers, the G5000H eliminates visual clutter. Mechanical knobs, buttons and selector switches have been replaced with a series of large, WXGA high-resolution displays thereby providing operators easy, intuitive, and rapid access to aircraft systems and sensors. Each all-purpose display can function independently as a Primary Flight Display (PFD) or Multifunction Display (MFD). These displays can also function in multi-pane mode, displaying both PFD and MFD side-by-side on the same screen.


SATCOM Weather, Talk & Text

The G5000H is highly configurable, upgradeable and can support technology as it becomes available, including NextGen and Single European Sky (SES). Options such as traffic receivers, satellite weather and communications, and digital radar can be easily added. In addition to the effort placed on advancing the man-machine Interface, Garmin continues to enhance current products while developing new products that offer increased capability and reliability, reduced size, weight, and power, while improving situational awareness and overall safety.

  • The ACE DECK VL-60 offering includes:
  • Comprehensive Flight Management System (FMS) capabilities with Performance Planning: FMS capabilities deliver performance and cost saving features such as SBAS navigation and approaches, GBAS approaches, Baro VNAV, RNP AR approaches (down to RNP 0.1), takeoff and landing calculations (TOLD), Enroute Performance, Cost Indexing, and more.
  • Tactical and Strategic Worldwide Weather Solutions: Garmin Integrated Flight Decks offer operators around the world combined active radar and datalink weather solutions. Doppler-enhanced solid state weather radar is capable of 3D volumetric scanning, turbulence detection, ground clutter suppression, and predictive wind shear. This weather radar is complemented by rich datalink weather in both North America (SiriusXM and SATCOM) and worldwide (via SATCOM), giving operators the weather information they need to make time-saving decisions that reduce operating costs.
