Reliability and Awareness
The CJ3+ is equipped with a fully digital, dual-channel autopilot (AP) system equipped with many features for added safety, redundancy and reliability. Integrating data from the avionics system, the AP is built to inspire confidence while ensuring smoothness and comfort.
The system is powered by the Garmin® GFC™ 700, a control system that has flight director, autopilot, yaw damper, and features that provide top-level safety and performance. The GFC 700 allows for outstanding flight automation and precision. The AP maximizes aircraft performance with precise lateral and vertical navigation guidance for all phases of flight. It can maintain altitude, airspeed, vertical speed and heading, in addition to flying VNAV descent profiles, automated Takeoff/Go-Around procedures and more.
The CJ3+ has an AP system that is simple and straightforward to operate yet sophisticated and state-of-the-art, which makes flying the CJ3+ easier, safer, more consistent and more enjoyable.
