Let's face it... Glass cockpits are here to stay. Not only do they provide enhanced situational awareness, but they are becoming more and more prolific. Almost all new aircraft being manufactured today have some type of glass, whether it is just a simple digital HSI up to a completely integrated avionics suite such as the Garmin G-1000 system. Several companies like Aspen Avionics and others are producing low-cost glass displays to replace the conventional "six-pack" steam gages. With these new technologies becoming ever more affordable and more Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) being issued every day, it is important for pilots to be prepared for this transition.
The course we offer is designed to take someone who has virtually no experience with a technically advanced aircraft (TAA) and train them to a level of proficiency that will allow them to utilize the advanced features of the G-1000 cockpit, which is the most common type of display currently in the general aviation market. If you already have some familiarization with glass displays, then we will make you better. As an added bonus, our course qualifies as a Flight Review, Instrument Proficiency Check (if you are instrument rated) and an aircraft checkout. In some circumstances, you may even qualify for cheaper insurance rates if you are an aircraft owner.
After completion of our Glass Cockpit Transition Course, you will receive a certificate of graduation and be able to meet the following ojectives:
We have 3 options to choose from, depending on your desired level of proficiency. Option 3 can be taught for Garmin G-1000 or Avidyne Entegra.
