Featured on the pilot’s PFD is the Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) system, offering a virtual reality of terrain, obstacles, traffic and runways-everything beyond the widescreen.
Using the system’s terrain-alerting database, SVT enhances pilot’s situational awareness by creating a dimensional depiction of ground and water features, obstacles and traffic in proximity to the aircraft. Pilots get a realistic picture of what lies beyond the nose of the Sovereign+, even in solid IFR or nighttime VFR conditions. On the secondary display, MFD capabilities can be divided into two vertical pages. This facilitates logical pairing of whatever information makes sense to the pilot during any particular point in the flight sequence.
