    Brilliant intro to G1000
    This package is spendy, and as the old adage goes you get what you paid for. I will be doing a CF-II in an aircraft equipped with the G-1000. I want to know the system in and out before I go and train. This program has made me feel much more comfortable with the Garmin G 1000 system. Thank You! Paul Medenbach, Commerial, CF-II

    Great overview
    Great overview of the system. Gives you the basic info you need to then layer on your specific aircraft and its adoptions of the G1000. Also, nice to go back and review as you train those different aspects of the lessons/capabilities of the G1000.

    Good but looks somewhat dated
    It was a very logical review of the G1000 but it is all based on a C172 / C182. The most popular GA airplane in the world now is a Cirrus and it needs to be remade to address the Perspective G1000 in the Cirrus aircraft

    Very thorough
    Course covers everything you need to know and more to become familiar with the G1000. I have zero experience flying the G1000 and just completed watching the videos after a six year hiatus from flying. It was kind of like drinking from a firehose, but I'm looking forward to getting back in the airplane and applying the knowledge while reviewing the course as necessary. And as always, John and Martha's style of delivery makes the process entertaining and memorable.

    Excellent and clarity to working the G1000's complexity. Reading a book would not delivery nearly as much positive learning experience as to see the functions actually demonstrated as if it were a reality based scenario.

    I'm still learning.
    Though I've been flying with the GFC700 and G1000 for a few years I wanted more info for instructing on it. I've taken other excellent G1000 courses (Flying Like The Pros) and this King program still added to my knowledge base. The subtleties introduced in this King program really honed my instructional skills and took them to a more intricate level.

    This was an enjoyable course. Although I had already flown the G1000 for more than 100 hours, I found the detail of the training gave me pointers no one else had provided so far. Great for a new pilot to the G1000, or for someone still building hours with it!
