 flyExclusive Invests in Technology Excellence with Garmin G5000® Fleet Upgrade in Partnership with Force Aviation

FlyExclusive, a provider of premium private-jet charter experiences, announces that it is advancing the efficiency, reliability and safety of its fleet with the installation of the state-of-the-art Garmin G5000® advanced flight deck. Offering one of the most intuitive pilot-vehicle interfaces available in the marketplace, the G5000 demonstrates flyExclusive’s commitment to harnessing innovative technology to enhance operations and deliver elite experiences for its private-jet customers.

With the addition of the G5000 to its fleet, flyExclusive will transform the way its crew members access flight data. The modernized layout is optimized for fewer hand/eye movements in the cockpit, giving 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,” says Tommy Sowers, president, flyExclusive. “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. The private-jet charter company chose Force Aviation because of its more-than-100 years of collective experience in avionics and preventative maintenance. Like flyExclusive, Force Aviation is deeply committed to providing superior service to its customers and partners as well as preserving the highest quality standards in its business practices.

“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,” says Kelly Brown, director of Sales, Force Aviation. “We are excited to partner with flyExclusive on the installation of the G5000 system in their aircraft, giving their pilots a new tool to deliver seamless experiences for pilots and customers.”

Additional benefits of the G5000 for flyExclusive’s fleet include:

  • Increased dispatch reliability to help optimize fleet availability, even amid peak demand, reducing trip cancellations and the need for replacement lift
  • Enhanced safety for crews and passengers due to increased situational awareness and additional safety-aiding items
  • Familiarity for pilots trained in Garmin avionics systems, a highly intuitive system for those using the system for the first time, compared to other integrated flight decks on the market
  • Ability to display charts, datalink weather, detailed taxi diagrams, synthetic vision and options for controller-pilot datalink communications
  • Modernized cockpit layout to match new production aircraft.

“We designed the G5000 to provide one of the most intuitive pilot-vehicle interfaces available in any business-jet avionics system,” says Dave Brown, manager of integrated flight deck retrofit programs, Garmin. “With this technology, flyExclusive pilots will now have the most robust avionics technology available to enhance the reliability and safety of the private-jet experience for flyExclusive’s customers.”
