Fly The Box, Introduction to G1000 System

Through this training the flight Instructor will give the client a basic understanding of the G1000 system. This will include the components; the modified scan for VFR flying, understanding the flight instruments, and navigating through the pages of the G1000 system. The last thing that will be covered will be basic input of flight plans and modifying  active plans.

The most important part of this training will cover emergencies and failures that can be encountered while operating the G1000 systems and what pilots can do to help themselves in the moments of an Emergency. The training instructor will be giving instruction on what to do in each scenario: Engine Failure, AHRS failure, ADC failure, and full Electrical Failure.


Aspects of Glass Cockpit flying should include the tendencies of new pilots to focus on the inside of the airplane instead of the outside traffic. It will be important that while flying Glass cockpit aircraft that each and every pilot maintain a vigilance of outside references and traffic!
