"Adding Garmin Autothrottles into the Citation M2 Gen2 exemplifies Textron Aviation's ongoing commitment to product investment across our entire product lineup,” said Lannie O’Bannion, senior vice president, Sales & Flight Operations. “With its intelligent automation and streamlined operation, the integration of autothrottles in the aircraft provides pilots added precision and efficiency.”

Fully integrated with the Citation M2 Gen2’s Garmin G3000® avionics system, Garmin Autothrottles streamlines operations from takeoff to landing by managing aircraft speed, engine performance and power to allow the aircraft to climb, descend or maintain altitude. It automatically manages engine thrust, optimizing airspeed and fuel efficiency, and adjusts engine power based on factors like altitude, airspeed, and aircraft weight. By maintaining precise control over these parameters, it ensures a smoother and more comfortable flying experience for passengers. Additionally, Garmin Autothrottles includes features to prevent exceedance conditions and provides alerts to pilots if any deviations occur, enhancing overall peace of mind.
