Real virtual reality
Featured on the pilot’s PFD is the Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology (SVTTM) system, offering a virtual reality view of terrain, obstacles, traffic, and runways — everything beyond the windscreen.
Using the system’s terrain-alerting database, SVT enhances pilots’ 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. Examples of this include displaying airway charts and approach plates or satellite weather and flight planning simultaneously. At the touch of the glass, pilots can instantly access traffic data, video inputs, radar, alerts, and more.
