In case you are still flying a traditional aircraft and our planning to make the transition to a glass cockpit, Sporty’s has just released the new Garmin G1000 Checkout for a retail price of US$89.95. The package includes a two disc DVD training video that runs for 107 minutes (hosted by air show announcer Rob Reider who has narrated other videos for Sporty’s), G1000 PC Software Simulator, syllabus and cockpit poster and according to the company website, the course is ideal for both VFR and IFR pilots or as a refresher course for current G1000 users.
Todd Macrock has already posted a short review of the Garmin G1000 Checkout on MyFlightBlog.com and he states that he preferred this product over another one by Sporty’s that he recently reviewed (Sporty’s Air Facts: Flying Glass Cockpits). He also points out that the Garmin G1000 Checkout contains some great scenario-based training.
So if you are already a fan of some of Sporty’s other training products, then the Garmin G1000 Checkout might be worth checking out.
