The training courses are available in a virtual eLearning format, allowing pilots to learn at their own pace, with the G1000 NXi Fundamentals eLearning Course providing a foundational understanding of the integrated flight deck system, while the G1000 NXi Essentials eLearning Course is focused on systems installed in high-performance piston and turbine-engine aircraft.
The Fundamentals course, along with a G1000H NXi Advanced-IFR course, use scenario-based training to highlight helicopter-specific operations and are tailored for pilots new to the G1000H NXi system, as well as for those with experience but wanting a deeper understanding of the system.
Courses tailored to the audience
All training courses build on a common core of training topics. These topics are tailored to the audience for each course. The topics include:
- Primary Flight Display and Multifunction Display function
- Audio Panel Features
- Automatic Flight Control System
- Hazard Avoidance Features
- Safety features
- Abnormal Operations
- Managing databases
- Operational Flight Scenario
Available immediately after purchase using a computer or tablet device with internet access, pilots can navigate through the virtual courses at their own pace. Assessments throughout the course validate knowledge obtained of critical items while documenting the learning process. With the ability to pause lessons as needed to return to the lesson later, this is a convenient option for any pilot. Also, pilots can retake specific lessons or even the entire course during the subscription period.
Recently, Garmin has updated the GI 275 electronic flight instrument and was granted supplemental type certificate approval by the Federal Aviation Administration.
