This is the world’s first turboprop aircraft certified for emergency autoland. It allows the aircraft to land automatically in case of pilot incapacitation and can be activated by a passenger.

It will go into a stabilized approach and will automatically land the aircraft, making it stationary before shutting down the engine. This will come as a standard feature for the Beechcraft Denali. The cockpit is fitted with the Garmin G3000  avionics as well as the Garmin emergency Autoland.
