Detailed Description

In less than two years, the industry has converted to ship all new aircraft with glass cockpits, rather than traditional instrument panels. The most popular of these is the Garmin G1000, and now there's a comprehensive guide describing how to operate these airplanes: Max Trescott's G1000 Glass Cockpit Handbook.

This book makes it easy for you to quickly become an expert on operating and programming the G1000 system in any aircraft. Instructors agree that the cockpit is not an ideal learning environment. Reading this book, written by a Master Flight Instructor, is one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to learn the G1000 before stepping into the cockpit for your first transition lesson.

Get the single source of information that educates pilots about all of the features and benefits of flying the G1000, and how features vary among aircraft manufacturers. Whether you fly a Beechcraft, Cessna, Columbia, Diamond, Mooney or Tiger, you'll learn which G1000 features apply to your particular aircraft. Or, if you're planning to buy a new Very Light Jet (VLJ) like the Cessna Mustang or Diamond D-Jet, this book will help you prepare while you wait for delivery.

You'll learn about the PFD and MFD displays, audio panel, programming the GPS, electrical systems, using the autopilot and dealing with emergencies. A detailed discussion of instrument approaches, integrated with use of the autopilot, will help you become a pro. Advanced features, optional in some aircraft, such as TIS and TAS traffic monitoring systems, Stormscopes, and Terrain Awareness Warning Systems (TAWS) are discussed in detail. You'll also learn to use all of the data link weather features, like NEXRAD radar, satellite images, freezing level, winds aloft, AIRMETs, SIGMETS, TFRs,and METARs available through XM Satellite weather. Someday, all planes will be flown this way and with Max Trescott's G1000 Glass Cockpit Handbook, you can learn how to fly them today. Soft cover, 244 pages, 40 in color, illustrated with more than 275 computer screen shots and photographs, glossary and index.
