GrandNew

The GrandNew is the next generation of the proven Grand platform, with a new digital glass-cockpit and a composite material fuselage. The Chelton FlightLogicTM Synthetic Vision EFIS and a new 4-axis digital duplex autopilot provide the pilots with situational awareness and flight management capabilities never achieved before on the light twin class. Designed using the latest technology, the GrandNew offers high performance capabilities, a large cabin and low environmental footprint for a wide range of roles whilst retaining the attractive economics typical of the light twin category.
