Garmin’s New Emergency Autoland


Emergency Autoland is the latest layer of embedded automation in Garmin’s Autonomi family of flight technologies for the G3000 integrated avionics suite. Coupled with an autothrottle, the autopilot’s Emergency Descent Mode and Electronic Stability and Protection, the system ultimately puts the aircraft back on the runway when the pilot can’t. With final FAA certification pending, Autoland is expected to be included in the production type certificates for the 2020 Piper M600 turboprop single and the Cirrus Vision Jet. AVweb contributor and Aviation Consumer magazine Editor-in-Chief Larry Anglisano flew with Garmin’s full Autonomi system in both aircraft and prepared this field report.

  1. I’ve use Garmin products from the Palm III to the G1000. I have a box of obsolete equipment in my hangar to prove it. What’s more, I’ve flown from the Mexican to the Canadian border and from the Pacific coast to the Golf of Mexico on Garmin. I like Garmin. I teach Garmin. But, using a heart attack as a reason to buy an autoland system. Well, it turns me off. It appears as a cheap scare strategy to manipulate the buying public. The pilot incapacitation statistics do not support the need for the product. Is it an amazing system? Yes it is! Sell it for its merits.
