Like its non-turbine siblings–the DA40 Diamond Star and DA42 Twin Star–the Diamond D-Jet will feature a Garmin G1000 integrated avionics suite, Olathe, Kan.-based Garmin said yesterday. As such, Diamond’s very light jet single will have a three-panel G1000 flight-deck system with two primary flight displays and a multifunction display. The Garmin G1000 integrates all primary flight, navigation, communication, terrain, traffic, weather, engine instrumentation and crew-alerting system data and presents the composite information on the LCD screens. First flight of the five-place, Williams International FJ33-4-powered jet is slated for this October, with certification planned for early 2007. Priced at about $1 million, the D-Jet is being designed to cruise at 315 knots and have a maximum operating altitude of 25,000 feet.
