Garmin G1000 Training

An FAA rule change has made obtaining the commercial certificate easier and more relevant. Instead of training in an older retractable-gear aircraft, you can now train in new, modern, technically advanced aircraft (TAA)  such as Apollo Aviation’s Diamond DA40.  The DA40 uses avionics and modern technology that will better mirror what you will fly as a professional pilot, ultimately giving you the competitive advantage over a job candidate who has never flown with 21st century technology.

A TAA is an aircraft that has:

An electronic primary flight display with all six primary instruments.
An electronic multifunction display with a GPS-based moving map.
A two-axis autopilot with heading and navigation modes.

The Standard in Glass Flight Deck Capability

The transition from “steam gauges” to glass cockpits can be intimidating, but with proper training it can open up a new world of workload reduction and flight safety features.

Let Apollo Aviation save you time and money with transition training in our G1000 Checkout Course.

This is not a home study course, in fact we have chosen to use actual in-aircraft training with our instructors, covering everything you need to know to be safe, proficient and comfortable with the G1000. 

Training is first conducted on the ground, then after the fundamental knowledge and familiarization have been developed, you will put your skills to the test in the air!
