Additional Study Resources and Helpful Information:
In the event of an engine failure, the pilot needs to perform several essential tasks as soon as possible. The Smart Glide feature assists the pilot with emergency procedures and provides guidance to navigate to an airport and, with a compatible autopilot, fly the aircraft enroute.
Once the pilot activates Smart Glide by pressing the dedicated panel-mounted switch, the following actions occur:
The system will consider the aircraft’s estimated glide range (including terrain and obstacles) and recommend a suitable destination airport for landing as well as provide a list of alternative airports. It will also alert if no airport is estimated to be within glide range.
The moving map will declutter and replace the existing flight plan with a direct course to the center of an airport reachable without power while avoiding any terrain or obstacles on the selected flight path.
GTN Xi will display the configured best glide speed.
The CDI will switch to GPS mode, engage the Garmin autopilot in IAS mode at best glide speed, and activate the flight director command bars on the compatible flight display.
The selected airport’s CTAF or tower frequency will automatically load to the primary Comm standby position. If no airports are estimated to be within glide range, Emergency Frequency 121.5MHz will be loaded into the primary Comm standby position.
GTN Xi will provide a Squawk 7700 shortcut key. Selecting it will tune the compatible transponder to alert air traffic control of an emergency.
Aural alerts will announce the distance and bearing to the airport, and when to prepare for manual maneuvering and landing.
The Emergency page will display active route and longest runway details, the configured best glide speed for the aircraft, and longest runway winds (if available). The pilot determines where to land after reaching the airport environment.
