Garmin G1000 NXi

The Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck is the successor to Garmin’s popular G1000.  The G1000 NXi’s improved performance and flight display design has integrated leading-edge capabilities in a modernized platform.  Its processing power, advanced features and growth-oriented technology work together to help lower your aircraft’s cost of operation while increasing its overall performance, useful load, NextGen readiness and market value at resale time.

Want to lower your King Air’s weight about 250 pounds?

The King Air G1000 NXi cockpit configuration is the perfect fit for your King Air.  Right in the center of the panel is a 15” multifunction display (MFD) with two 10.4” primary flight displays (PFDs) on each side at the pilot and copilot positions.  All primary flight, navigation, weather, terrain, traffic, radio frequency, engine and fuel data readouts are integrated in a format that is much clearer, simpler and more intuitive.  By integrating so many components, the Garmin G1000 NXi’s weight is typically lower by about 250 pounds (due in part by eliminating the extra wiring required by the old-style avionics it’s replacing).  Need more fuel, luggage or an extra passenger?  The weight savings offers significant operational advantages.

  • VFR and IFR sectional charts Display on MFD
  • Animated SXM weather (with optional GDL 69 or GDL 69A)
  • Vertical Situation Display (VSD) incorporates terrain profile view on the MFD, taking into consideration the active flight plan, altitude constraints and winds aloft.
  • New Three color Relative Terrain Shading with improved contouring.
    • Green-2,000 FT.
    • Yellow-1,000 FT.
    • Red-100 FT

The King Air G1000 NXi package includes HSI mapping capabilities that put an MFD-like perspective map view within the HSI portion of the PFD.  This detailed graphical landscape helps focus your instrument scan, enabling you to better visualize nearby flight and enroute navigation features.

HSI Map Overlay on Primary Flight Display supports display of:

  • Weather radar also overlaid on the big 15” MFD.
  • ADS-B (FIS-B) “In” Weather (with optional GTX 345R)
  • Sirius XM weather (with optional GDL 69A)
  • ADS-B “Out” and “In” Traffic, with TargetTrend™ Relative Motion vectors (with optional GTX 345R).
  • Optional GTS 825 TAS or GTS 855 TCAS 1 provides traffic detection out to 40nm or 80 NM respectively.
  • SafeTaxi
  • 3-Color Relative Terrain

Optional SurfaceWatch runway identification/alerting technology provides a safer operating environment by identifying potential runway incursions, runways that don’t meet the takeoff or landing requirements of your aircraft or mistakes such as using the wrong runway.

Using the Garmin Pilot app with the optional Flight Stream 510 enables your King Air’s avionics and mobile devices to stream information in real time – turning your tablet or smartphone into a cockpit interface – enabling Database Concierge wireless database transfer plus flight plan transfer and continual streaming of weather, traffic, attitude information and more.

Want to send text messages or initiate phone calls?

The optional GSR 56 datalink with Connext Satellite service plan will allow you to send texts and initiate phone calls on mobile devices running the Garmin Pilot app.  If you subscribe to SiriusXM, you can select channels from any seat in the aircraft wirelessly.  And for those running ForeFlight Mobile, Connext can display ADS-B weather, traffic, GPS, attitude and transfer flight plans via your mobile device.

The Garmin G1000 NXi can show terrain, obstacles, airports, flight plan routes, datalink weather and/or onboard radar overlays, SafeTaxi diagrams, traffic targets and more by creating a “virtual reality” landscape using optional SVT synthetic vision technology.  So when you’re in solid IFR or nighttime VFR conditions, the PFD will display a clear-day virtual view of your flight.

Included in the Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck for your King Air is the GFC 700 Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS).  In addition to full class 3 aproach capability that allows you to fly GPS-guided WAAS LPV “glidepath” approaches down to ILS-comparable minimums, G1000 NXi adds Visual Approach capability, generating a 3-degree autopilot-coupled vertical flight plan down to pilot-selectable minimums.

ESP works with the Garmin G1000 NXi flight control system and aids in maintaining your King Air in a safe, flight-stable condition when the aircraft is hand-flown.  If excessive pitch and roll is detected, ESP will apply a gentle corrective force to the yoke.  ESP also provides underspeed protection (USP) and coupled go-around capabilities.

When proximity conflicts loom ahead, the King Air’s G1000 NXi graphically alerts you using color coding on the displays.  For an extra level of safety, Class-B TAWS – or optional Class-A TAWS on new King Air 200, 300 and 350 series retrofits – is included in the package.  To monitor your location on an airport, Garmin’s SafeTaxi contains a detailed database of U.S., Canadian, European or Brazilian airport diagrams.  Thousands of terminal procedures and approach plates (electronic versions) contained in FliteCharts are preloaded.  For enroute navigation, your choice of georeferenced VFT Sectional or IFR Enroute mapping data is provided – along with previews for standard departures and arrivals.

The Garmin G1000 NXi meets the requirements for NextGen airspace by providing ADS-B Out capabilities featured in its integrated ADS-B transponder (optional on the King Air C90).  ADS-B In provides support for subscription-free weather and advanced traffic displays (including TargetTrend and TreminalTraffic).

In addition, the King Air G1000 NXi suite comes standard with Garmin’s GWX 70 digital Doppler-capable color weather radar. It combines excellent range and adjustable scanning profiles with precision target definition — for accurate, easy-to-interpret, weather analysis in the cockpit. And it’s available with advanced optional capabilities such as turbulence detection and ground clutter suppression.

For international operations, your G1000 NXi can receive on-demand worldwide weather with its optional Garmin Connext satellite link receiver.  When flying throughout most of Europe, Canada and the U.S., you can receive high-resolution radar imagery via satellite link as well.

The Garmin G1000 NXi’s monitoring and logging capability collects data to support engine performance, trend and exceedance analysis.  Your aircraft technician can use this information to identify any engine performance problems, or potential problems that could lead to costly future repairs.
