This course has demystified the 430 for me.
This course has demystified the 430 for me. I have always resisted GPS navigators for our car even when offered for free, because I prided myself on my navigation skills on the HWY and Interstate systems. However, there are no signs and markings in the sky, so I had a steeper learning curve when using this technology..

Good Stuff
Started my instrument flight training and the plane has a Garmin 430. Instructor has been good to let me move the knobs and push the buttons but it was just not sinking in. This course helped me to better understand the 430 and I cannot wait now to get in the plane and show my instructor what I have learned from this course.

Thorough GNS 430/530 Overview
Flying armed with the information provided within this course certainly takes a lot of the guesswork out of using the GNS 430/530 equipment. John and Martha King have condensed a rather large volume of technical yet necessary information down into easily absorbed chunks. Taking the course was well worth the time spent.

Flying The Garmin 430/530
I found" flying the Garmin 430/530" course to be very informative. I would recommend the course to all pilots that plan to fly with either of the units.

Best course for the GN430
Best I have found for the GN430. would have liked a setup guide so that I could have followed along with the course on the GN430 simulator.

I'm ready
After taking the course I'm now ready to take on the next chapter in my flying career, flying a cargo CE208. The 430/530 course gave me fantastic tools to use this great instrument in a very demanding work environment. The information presented is clear, concise, and completely user-friendly. I did the whole course on my iPad.. The mobile platform worked flawlessly, and the Kings do an outstanding job of presenting this and every subject.

This was good.
This was good, I needed some help with garmin 430/ 530. It was much cheaper to learn thru the video online course rather than rent a plane and fumble around with the knobs.
