    Good Lecture But No Practice
    John and Martha King lecture very well. John talks a bit fast. Martha's pace is good but has too much 'huh'. They cover the G1000 functions pretty well. But they only TALK about how to do and what the G1000 and the airplane would respond. It would be better if they can show the airplane action, say using a flight simulator. Learning G1000 requires practice, just like learning any other skills. I think they should include a G1000 simulator in the course and provide some exercises for students to practice.

I am looking forward to getting my BFR and IPC completed shortly so that I can get back up into the air on a regular basis.

    G1000 Review
    Very helpful course. Having flown an FMS for 6+ years, I found a lot of similarities. Unless I missed it, one thing I was surprised the G1000 does not do is a hold other than a published hold for an approach. ie: if you want to hold at ABC VOR Southeast on the 120 radial, you must switch to OBS and set the course pointer on 300 degrees toward the station, then manually (command the autopilot) between the heading selector for outbound and NAV for inbound leg, keeping up with either time or distance. On the FMS I was flying and the GTN750 I am now flying, you can designate a holding pattern, left or right turns, timed or distance legs. I am looking forward to flying the G1000 in a PA32R

    Great way to learn the G1000
    Good job in making this course. Covers pretty much everything you would need to know to start using the G1000. Just remember that you will need to review some sections after actually using the system to get everything to become second nature.

    Another outstanding course
    I taught at SimuFlite and Bombardier in Learjets and Challengers with advanced Honeywell avionics and FMS. For whatever reason the G1000 seemed to be beyond my comprehension or grasp. Not anymore. John and Martha did their usual outstanding job of presenting the systems in bite sized chunks. I now am confident that I can use the G1000 for all my flying. VFR and IFR. Thanks VERY much.

    Outstanding review!
    I've taken this course previously, before actually flying the G1000. However, because the system is complex, it's vital to review periodically. This course is ideal for that purpose; I also picked up some tips to make my use of the G1000 and GFC 700 more effective and efficient.

    Totally invaluable

    So Many Buttons!
    I started out with a paper map, eb6, ruler, telex and number 2 pencil. Software and satellites have replaced compass, clock and me. This course has made me useful. Thanks.

    Efficient and Informative
    Efficient and fast paced with just enough redundancy to help ensure retention. Completed the entire course offline after downloading the videos using the companion app which worked great.
