The brain of the XLS+

The heart of your travel

The pilot needs to know different flight-critical information at various times during each phase of the flight, which is why the XLS+ is equipped with the Collins Pro Line 21™. This line of avionics provides weather navigation systems, airport diagrams, detailed flight status data, checklists, diagnostic systems and are directly in the crew’s line of sight. Angled control panels and four tilted eight by ten inch displays show flight information in simple, clear readouts. 

Your digital weatherman

Your XLS+ will give you instant, accurate and up-to-date weather information for your flight path via the XM WX Satellite Weather® Data Service. This long-range, comprehensive weather detection system provides sharp situational awareness for both pilots and copilots.

With upgraded software, pilots can view satellite imagery with NEXRAD overlays, see Temporary Flight Restrictions (FSR) both in graphical and textual formats, view winds aloft and view cloud-to cloud lightning with strikes data refreshed every five minutes. Images and data are available at any altitude and are processed through a receiver supplied on a Head-Up Display (HUD) technologies which are then stored in the file server unit (FSU) for immediate access.

Uncompromising safety

The XLS+ is equipped with a traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) powered by the Collins TCAS-4000. The system tracks all other aircraft within a 35-nautical-mile radius. The system will select and display only the aircraft traffic that poses a collision threat along with audible traffic alerts and resolution advisories to assist pilots in maneuvering around potential hazards. If the other aircraft detected in the system is also equipped with TCAS technology, each system will coordinate complementary maneuvers to correct the situation.
