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. LPV, LNAV/VNAV and LNAV+V approaches are clearly explained, as are features found only in the Cessna Mustang jet and likely to appear in the Diamond D-Jet.Read the first 19 pages on line.
Learning to Fly the Garmin G1000
Instructors agree that the cockpit is not an ideal learning environment. Reading this book is one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to learn the G1000 before stepping into the cockpit and taking your first transition lesson. In addition, we recommend that you use the Garmin G1000 simulator software to practice as you read this book. We can also help you find where to rent a G1000 aircraft.
