Honeywell will supply the integrated avionics systems for Gulfstream’s newest business jets, the G300 and G500. In the G500, essentially an improved derivative of the GV, Honeywell is designing a four-display Primus Epic PlaneView cockpit similar to the integrated system now flying in the G550 (see photo below). The package, due to enter production in 2004, provides functionality for PlaneView’s integrated navigation system, which portrays a moving map with terrain, airport symbols with runway orientation and satellite and radar images of datalink weather on 14.4-in. displays. The G300 will have the Honeywell SPZ-8400 integrated avionics system with six 8- by 8-in. displays, digital flight controls, NV-2000 FMS and dual IRS. This system is the same as the avionics package already flying in the GIV-SP (aka G400). G300 production is to start next year.
