The new graphical user interface, with icon-identified onscreen touchkeys, provides a virtual flight management system.
Learn to use the icon based Home screen to access all operational functions with finger-tip data entry. You can really speed up the flight plan entry by adding airway segments and using the new “rubber band” feature for flight plan revisions. The new graphical flight planning feature makes on-screen flight plan editing real easy.
Garmin GNS 430W and GNS 530W TSO C146a WAAS
Learn to use the features of the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) which provides greater GPS precision, reliability and availability. Learn how you can fly the LPV approaches and the LNAV+V approaches with vertical approach guidance.
Garmin GNS 430 and GNS 530 TSO C129a
Learn to use the world’s most popular and best selling panel-mount GPS/NAV/COM receiver, the Garmin GNS 430. The instructor will use various on-screen presentations and the PC-based Garmin GNS 430 simulator for demonstrations and then you will practice the procedures on your client supplied laptop computer with the Garmin GNS 430 simulator giving you lots of experience with tactile learning.
By learning how to effectively use the Garmin GNS 430 you will be able to easily apply that knowledge to using the Garmin GNS 530, any of the Garmin G1000 family of glass cockpit displays, and also the new Garmin GTN 650 and GTN 750 touch-screen navigators.
The Garmin GNS 430 familiarization training is conducted over full two days; Level I – VFR Navigation, followed by Level II – IFR Operations. During the early part of each day’s course you will learn about the global positioning system and the various functions and capabilities of these units. During the latter part of each day’s course there are several scenario-based training exercises for you to use your newly acquired knowledge and skills to plan actual trips and program the Garmin GNS 430.
Garmin G500 / G600 Electronic Flight Display
Learn to use the features of these displays combined with your existing Garmin avionics stack. Your aircraft will be transformed into a state-of-the-art digital command centre.
Learn how to optimize your flight experience with exceptional situational awareness.
These Transport Canada approved courses also allow any pilot to meet the 24 month recurrency requirements of CARs paragraph 401.05(2)(a).
Your ground training program can be followed with in-flight training in your aircraft with training tailored to meet your specific aircraft equipment and operational needs. Please Contact Us directly to discuss your specific training requirements.
