FlyExclusive, the fifth-largest operator measured by charter and fractional hours, today announced that it is installing the Garmin G5000 advanced flight deck.

The G5000 will transform the way its crew members access flight data. The modernized layout is optimized for fewer hand/eye movements in the cockpit. It gives flight crews complete control over navigation and communications systems, traffic surveillance systems, electronic checklist entries and remote audio/intercom systems as well as optional charting, traffic, weather, entertainment and custom display options.

“FlyExclusive is harnessing technology innovation in a way no other Part 135 operator in the marketplace can match,” said company President Tommy Sowers.

He added, “By upgrading our aircraft with the G5000, we’re elevating our fleet to incorporate the best of the best in avionics technology. This and other investments we are making in technology will help further our mission of providing the safest, most reliable and most efficient private jet experiences in the market.”

FlyExclusive will partner with Force Aviation to install the G5000 system in 10 of its Cessna Citation Excel aircraft.

Plans call for outfitting the entire fleet, although a timeframe was not provided.

The private jet charter company chose Force Aviation. The provider has more than 100 years of collective experience in avionics and preventative maintenance.

“As a leader in avionics installation and repair and a Garmin Platinum Dealer, we pride ourselves on working with the best brands in aviation to equip their fleets with the most innovative technology available,” said Kelly Brown, Director of Sales for Force.
