Garmin G5000 Essentials 2.0

All online course created by Garmin

This Garmin produced introductory online course will teach you the basics for how to perform various tasks on the Garmin G5000 using a 3-step method: demonstration, training and solo execution.
3 hours

The course will guide you through primary functions of the G5000 using a simulation system with on-screen prompts. Once you’ve mastered a task in demonstration mode, you can switch to solo mode to practice what you've learned without the use of on-screen prompts.
The Garmin G5000 eLearning course provides introductory instruction on the user-interface and operation of this advanced flight deck, enabling you to feel more prepared for your type rating. This course is great for those new to integrated flight decks or Garmin avionics as well as those looking to brush up on the basics.
