Cessna receives FAA certification for Garmin G1000 Synthetic Vision Technology

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for Garmin's Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT) for all G1000-equipped 172 Skyhawks, 182 Skylanes, 206 Stationairs and the Caravan product line.

The Garmin G1000 SVT gives the pilot a 3D graphical representation of the surrounding terrain and displays the aircraft's position in an enhanced topographical database. Garmin's SVT also includes other features such as 3D depiction of obstacle identification, traffic, flight path marker, zero pitch line, runway information and airport signs.

"Adding SVT to the cockpit is an exciting feature that gives the pilot more information to enhance decision making during flight," said John Doman, Cessna's vice president, worldwide propeller aircraft sales. "This brings an entirely new level of situational awareness into the cockpit that will absolutely enhance safe operation of the aircraft."

In most cases, SVT capability will be available for retrofit to earlier production G1000-equipped Cessnas. Cessna expects FAA certification for SVT on the Citation Mustang, 350 Corvalis and 400 Corvalis TT in the coming weeks. Application for European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) validation has been submitted and is expected in the coming months.
