Very good intro to the 430/530
I bought a quarter share of a C182 that has a GNS 530W in it. I 'm an older pilot (63) who got my IFR rating (and have flown since primarily) on steam gauges and never got a great intro to GPS for IFR. This course is a good grounding in both IFR GPS in general and the older Garmin products in particular. Used with Garmin's 430/530 simulator (downloadable for free on the Garmin website) I feel comfortable enough now to be able to fly our aircraft in basic IFR situations. The course is basically just videos (no interactive elements, no quizzes etc.) and the content (and format) is a little dated (old 4x3 format, database dates in the mid 2000's, etc.) but worth the investment in clarity, comprehensiveness, and increased confidence. Thanks John and Martha for helping me expand my capabilities and keep my flying safe.
