Flying the G1000

I took a lesson with Stanley today to get used to the G1000. It was a fun experience. I encountered what I imagine the usual issues are when first flying the G1000, like:

  • The airspeed tape – a bit weirder than the needle.
  • Where’s my tachometer!? Oh yea, it’s up there…
  • Barometric pressure.. put it in twice!


  • Actually, I can get used to this autopilot.

I think a couple more flights and I’ll be comfortable looking in the right places and hitting the right buttons on-demand.
