SyberJet Aircraft plans to resume production of the SJ30 light twinjet in 2014 with a new glass panel cockpit called SyberVision, with core avionics supplied by Honeywell. SyberJet hopes to have the new avionics certified in the third quarter of 2014, with first delivery of the jet in the fourth quarter of 2014. The company announced that it is not taking orders for new aircraft deliveries at this time, but should begin doing so shortly.

The SJ30 was designed by Ed Swearingen in the late 1980s. Production ceased after eight aircraft were built and the then-design owner, Emivest Aerospace, filed bankruptcy in 2010. Last year the program’s assets were acquired by MT LLC, a company affiliated with airframe supplier Metalcraft Technologies.

The new avionics will include Honeywell’s SmartView synthetic vision with HUD symbology in a heads down presentation on the primary flight display, dual FMS, and INAV moving map. The suite features up to four 12-inch displays, charts/maps, Taws-A, dual Waas GPS/LPV, graphical flight planning, onboard weather radar, electronic checklists, DME, and ADS-B OUT. The system will support Fans-1A and RVSM operations. Available options include controller pilot data link communications, high frequency radio, satcom, ADS-B IN, enhanced vision, XM WX, flight data recorder, cockpit voice recorder, dual charts/maps, a second MFD and other customer-specified options.
