Aircraft Applicability:  SN 11-SUB


Garmin’s runway monitoring technology that provides indications and alerts designed to help prevent pilots from taking off or landing on the wrong runway, a runway that is too short, or a taxiway.  During preflight, pilots can enter the takeoff/landing distance performance data, prompting a brief “runway too short” aural annunciation and a visual message on the primary flight display (PFD) if the aircraft is aligned to take off or land on a runway that is too short.  SurfaceWatch will also display the remaining runway distance information on the PFD during the takeoff roll and landing rollout.  On approach, the system will provide a “check runway” annunciation if the aircraft is aligned with the wrong runway.

Terrain Awareness & Warning System Class A (TAWS A)

Upgrades to Terrain Awareness & Warning System (TAWS) Class A functionality to provide the safety benefits of TAWS B including displaying the terrain information on the Multi-Function Display (MFD) and additionally on the Primary Flight Display (PFD) with the optional Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology.  Additionally, TAWS A provides the additional alerts and warnings for excessive closure rate to terrain, flight into terrain when not in a landing configuration and excessive downward deviation for an ILS glideslope.  TAWS-A uses colors and symbols to represent terrain and obstacles (with heights greater than 200 feet above ground level, AGL) present in the databases relative to aircraft altitude.  The system dynamically adjusts these colors as the aircraft altitude changes, and after takeoff and landing.  Note: Requires Garmin (GAR 5500) Radar Altimeter and separate data subscription.

Traffic Alert & Collision Avoidance II (TCAS II)

The Traffic Alert & Collision Avoidance II (TCAS II) system improves flight safety by monitoring the airspace for other aircraft with operating transponders in the vicinity.  The TCAS II system provide traffic information to the displays, and if separation from other aircraft is within certain limits, the system issues Traffic Advisories (TAs) to assist the flight crew in the visual acquisition of traffic, or Resolution Advisories (RAs) to provide recommended vertical guidance maneuvers (speed and attitude) to resolve a traffic conflict with one or more aircraft.

For each detected aircraft transponder, the system calculates the time to, and separation at, the closest point of approach (CPA) around potential collision area surrounding own aircraft.  Based on this time, the own aircraft altitude, and the selected TCAS II operating mode, the system determines if a TA or RA should be issued for the detected intruder traffic.

A Resolution Advisory (RA), displayed as either a filled red square or a red square with a circle inside of it, indicates traffic is within 15-35 seconds of a potential collision area.

Reactive Wind Shear Detection

Reactive wind shear detection provides caution and warning alerts when a wind shear condition is detected.  Both caution and warning alerts may be issued (though not simultaneously) during an actual wind shear encounter.  The type of alert issued is dependent on how greatly the wind shear encounter is affecting the aircraft’s performance.

HondaJet Wind Shear Annunciation
HondaJet Wind Shear Yellow

A wind shear caution alert provides crew awareness of likely wind shear conditions as the aircraft performance is increasing.  This may be due to an updraft, increasing headwind, or decreasing tailwind.

HondaJet Wind Shear Red

A wind shear warning alert notifies the crew of the presence of likely wind shear conditions as the aircraft performance is decreasing, for immediate corrective action.

Aircraft Applicability: SN 11-SUB

Enhanced Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS)

Stability and Protection System (ESP™):
Provides additoinal protection to the pilot by maintaining stable flight condition and flight envelope margin. Actively monitoring and correcting as required in the background, Stability and Protection System assists in avoiding inadvertent flight attitudes and airspeed while the autopilot is not engaged.

HondaJet AFCS Roll Limit Indicator

Roll Engagement:
Roll Limit Indicators are displayed on the roll scale at 45° right and left, indicating where Stability and Protection will engage.

HondaJet AFCS Pitch-Limit Indicator

Angle of Attack Protection:
ESP pitch down force is applied when the Stall Warning and Protection System determines a stall warning condition is present.  When AoA decreases below Vsw, AoA pitch force is removed.  A Pitch Limit Indicator is always displayed on the PFD at the computed pitch attitude corresponding to Vsw.

HondaJet AFCS Command Bars

Coupled Go-Around with Underspeed Protection (USP):
In case of mismanagement of thrust input after pressing the Go-Around button, the autopilot remains engaged and USP automatically maintains safe airspeed by controlling pitch angle while also providing aural and visual warnings to the pilot.

Aircraft Applicability: SN 126-SUB

Ground Clutter Suppression and Turbulence Detection

Ground Clutter Suppression (GCS)
This feature identifies radar ground returns and removes them from the display through the use of Doppler radar and special algorithms.  Selecting this feature ON will remove most of the ground clutter from the display screen.  This feature can greatly improved the pilot’s ability to differentiate weather returns from ground returns.

HondaJet GCS Off

HondaJet Turbulence Detection

Turbulence Detection
This feature assists in identifying areas of turbulence associated with precipitation (including rain and hail) using the color magenta during a horizontal scan.  These magenta areas represent precipitation moving at a high rate of speed either toward or away from the radar antenna, using Doppler radar measurements.

Aircraft Applicability: SN 11-SUB

Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC)

Installs and activates single VHF Data Link Radio with Mode 2 capabilities and CPDLC functionality allowing for direct exchange of text-based messages between an air traffic controller and a pilot.  Requires: VHF/COM 3 Radio.  Note: Cannot be installed with FAA DATACOM.
