Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. has selected the Garmin G1000 integrated avionics system for its new D-JET personal aircraft. The G1000 flight deck for the D-Jet will be available as a three-panel system with two 10" primary flight displays (PFDs), a centrally located 15" multi-function display (MFD), FMS controller, glareshield mounted Autopilot Controller, and dual AHRS / GPS / Magnetometer sensor system.The Garmin G1000 is already being delivered on Diamond’s DA40-180 Diamond Star and the DA42 Twin Star. The system integrates all primary flight, navigation, communication, terrain, traffic, weather, engine instrumentation and crew-alerting system data on brilliant high definition displays.“We are thrilled to take another exciting step in our relationship with Diamond Aircraft by serving as the avionics supplier for the innovative D-Jet, said Gary Kelley, Garmin’s director of marketing. “As an owner-flown aircraft, the D-Jet is an ideal platform for the G1000 system by offering ease of use, superior reliability and enhanced flight safety as well as low cost of ownership.“The G1000 was the logical choice for the D-Jet. Apart from the system being top quality in features, performance and upgradeability, we like the cockpit commonality with our piston aircraft, Garmin's strength in GA avionics systems, their ability to deliver a complete and integrated system, and their excellent support in integrating the system into the airframe, said Christian Dries, CEO of Diamond Aircraft. The Diamond D-Jet is a single-engine, 5 seat personal jet with a cruise speed of 315 knots and operating altitude of 25,000 feet. First flight is scheduled for Q4, 2005.
