you did some of the course selection
and things down in the pedestal, a kind
of combo. On the Citation Excel/XLS,
integrated all the annunciation into the
G5000, so then we could use that spot

where the annunciators and CAS messages were before and put the autopilot
controller in. When we do it, it actually
looks just like a new airplane. These
retrofits don't look like a retrofit. They

way," Brown elaborated.
And if retrofitting a Citation 560XLS
with a Garmin G5000 looks like a daunting task - the assumption is correct.
Brown says the G5000 is "not a minor
install" and is a job "you want to have
at least a couple of fairly experienced
leads on."
At Elliott Aviation, three Citations
are currently being retrofitted with the
G5000, with nearly every department at
Elliott Aviation involved in the process,
said Reeves.
"There are a lot of teams involved in
this process. Just about every department
we have is involved by the end of the job.
A standalone G5000 install, with no interior or maintenance or anything extra,
gets multiple departments involved. The
runs and operational checks are completed by the service department. The
procurement of parts is done by the parts
department. The actual building of the
wiring harness is done by our wiring
shop. Prior to arrival and throughout the
process, our planning department helps
orchestrate the intercompany communication. Then in the avionics department,
we have the avionics install team working on the installation in conjunction
with the interior team. Once the install
