Now you can get the one book that tells pilots what they need to know to safely fly using a modern GPS receiver and autopilot. This is the single source of information that educates pilots about all of the features and benefits of flying the Garmin G, and explains how features vary among aircraft manufacturers. Whether you fly a Beechcraft, Cessna, Columbia, Diamond, or Mooney, you'll learn which Garmin G features apply to your particular aircraft.

There are no significant maintenance issues to watch for on any of the newer s. Like thethe was introduced in It offered the same ease of handling, comfort and simplicity of its little brother, thebut it also had more speed and better high-altitude performance.
Hot-and-high performance was remarkable, mountain flying was a breeze and the aircraft offered a decent mph on cross-country trips. The design proved so perfect that Cessna kept the same powerplant and made only cosmetic styling changes for 30 years to InCessna resumed production of the in its new incarnation, the S.
Even the newer is still the same basic airplane as its year-old cousin the only major changes, beyond styling, are a Lycoming IO rather than a Continental engine; leather seats; and a fancier, standard King digital avionics stack.
A turbocharged model was introduced in ; the next major change came in with the introduction of the Garmin G as standard equipment. The is a true mph airplane on about 15 gph.

An optional adapter allows the GFC and G5 to interface with select Garmin GPS or VHF navigators. GFC is currently approved for installation on select Cessna and Cessna models, with certification programs for additional aircraft types and models in-progress or planned.
With the aircraft on display, Cessna and Garmin celebrated the companies’ great partnership on these three biz jets. Garmin associates, many of whom design and build the avionics for these aircraft, lined up on the ramp to peek inside. In the picture above, the Cessna flight simulator cockpit seen from outside.
The cockpit is based on six computers, one used as server to drive the instrument panel (real gauges, GPS, radio stack, etc) and five used to drive one TV each, ensuring a stutter free panoramic view, covering ° around the aircraft.
