D.Unwin - High Performer /Commercial/
A very tall tailfin is necessary to offset the adverse yaw created by the massive wingspan.
This bathtub-shaped ventral pannier is the quickly removable Special Mission Equipment Bay.
The G520's very high aspect ration wings carry large split flaps and Frise-type ailerons, with a weather radar pod under the starboard wing.
The long side panel on the right side of the cockpit carries many of the switches for the electrical systems.
New G520NGs will have a fully-integrated glass cockpit and the sophisticated Genesys Aerosystems avionics suite.
As the instrumentation is all-analogue the cockpit looks a bit dated.
