    Good coverage of the G-1000
    The course covers both VFR and IFR flying with the G-1000 along with autopilot integration. While there's no substitute for practicing what you learn in the air, this is a great way to get familiar with what the system will do and then go practice in the plane. It's handy that you can come back to it and review it later.

    Good Lecture But No Practice
    John and Martha King lecture very well. John talks a bit fast. Martha's pace is good but has too much 'huh'. They cover the G1000 functions pretty well. But they only TALK about how to do and what the G1000 and the airplane would respond. It would be better if they can show the airplane action, say using a flight simulator. Learning G1000 requires practice, just like learning any other skills. I think they should include a G1000 simulator in the course and provide some exercises for students to practice.

    G1000 Review
    Very helpful course. Having flown an FMS for 6+ years, I found a lot of similarities. Unless I missed it, one thing I was surprised the G1000 does not do is a hold other than a published hold for an approach. ie: if you want to hold at ABC VOR Southeast on the 120 radial, you must switch to OBS and set the course pointer on 300 degrees toward the station, then manually (command the autopilot) between the heading selector for outbound and NAV for inbound leg, keeping up with either time or distance. On the FMS I was flying and the GTN750 I am now flying, you can designate a holding pattern, left or right turns, timed or distance legs. I am looking forward to flying the G1000 in a PA32R

    G1000 course
    The overall course was very good. There should be additional reference to the Bendix/King 140 2 axis autopilot as many Cessna 172's are out there with the G1000.
