March 3 (Sat) 11:00am G1000 GPS Workshop

Event Date: 
Saturday, March 3, 2018 - 11:00am

This seminar will be held from 11am - 1 pm.

The G1000 is now found in most aircraft manufactured with in the last 10-15 years. Odds are if you are a renter and desire a glass cockpit, you will be flying with the G1000.  This seminar is interactive between the presenters and audience, so bring your tips and confusions. While primarily focused for the G1000 beginner, all who have G1000 experience are welcomed and we will try to insert some seldom used/more advanced items.  We will plan a cross country flight with the audience and review how to enter all the procedures into the G1000 GPS including departure, enroute, arrival. approach and taxi. Modern GPS avionics usually have more than one way to accomplish a task so input from all will be welcomed.
