Embraer has selected Garmin International’s G1000 integrated avionics for its new very light jet (VLJ) and light jet (LJ). The G1000 will be used as the basis of Embraer’s Prodigy integrated flightdeck, which will be common to both aircraft. The flightdeck will feature three large-format liquid-crystal displays. The G1000 is also used on Cessna’s competing Citation Mustang entry-level jet. Embraer also evaluated L-3 Avionics Systems’ SmartDeck cockpit, as well as Honeywell’s Apex.
