New upgrades on Citation X at EBACE
The Citation X in the static display has new upgrades
Cessna is displaying its latest version of
the Citation X this week at EBACE before beginning a European demonstration
tour. The Citation X on display features the newly certified Honeywell Primus
Elite avionics suite, new cabin management system and winglets.
The enhancements, announced in mid-2010, are
now standard and available as an optional service bulletin upgrade through the Cessna Citation
network for in-service Citation Xs.
The five-panel Elite system is based on the
Citation X’s current Honeywell Primus 2000 system. Primus Elite features liquid
crystal displays offering high-resolution graphics display capability for
electronic approach charts with aircraft position worldwide as well as XM
satellite weather in the United States
and southern Canada.
In addition, improved moving map capability will depict geographical and
political boundaries as well as airspace and airways. LCD technology also provides
greater reliability and longer service life than previous displays.
