Garmin Expands Pilot Training Offerings

Onsite instruction helps customers maximize use of avionics.

You are likely very aware that flying behind avionics you are not familiar with is not only frustrating but also a major barrier to safe flight, particularly if you are flying IFR. To help its customers take maximum advantage of all the features in its popular touch-screen navigators, flight display systems and integrated flight decks, Garmin has added new classes online and on-site at its company headquarters in Olathe, Kansas.

Live classes are available for the GTN 650/750 touch-screen navigators and G500/G600 flight display systems. This course costs $625, runs over a two-day period and teaches the students how to fly with this Garmin avionics combination in everyday situations. The course is available March 19-20, April 23-24, May 16-17, June 18-19, September 17-18, October 22-23 and November 12-13.

There is also a slightly shorter course focusing on the GTN-series of navigators available on April 9-10 and June 6-7 for a reduced price of $495.

In addition to these scheduled courses, there are on-demand classes available that are tailored specifically to the needs of pilots flying aircraft equipped with Garmin’s G1000, G3000 and G5000 integrated avionics systems.

Online, or eLearning, programs are available for the G3000 and G5000 systems. There is also a Link 2000+ course for pilots needing Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) training.
