GNS 301 - The one about the FPL button
The most frequently asked questions we receive from participants in our earlier programs relate to the Flight Plan feature - the FPL button. So, in this program, we'll take a deep dive on this. Everything from Creating, Saving, Recalling, Deleting, and Transferring flight plans, to inserting and deleting waypoints; bypassing fixes and intercepting legs; adding, removing, changing procedures, and more, will be included.
Although they are now somewhat dated, the Garmin GNS530 and 430 remain ubiquitous in the GA fleet. These powerful navigation devices remain somewhat mysterious to many aviators, so Cap'n Mike will demystify the basics of this very capable equipment. Whether you've had one for years, found a used one on eBay, or just bought an airplane that came with one of these installed, you're sure to understand this gear better after attending this webinar.
Captain Mike Jesch flies a Boeing 787 on long-haul routes at work - with perhaps the most modern aviation navigation system available today. With deep roots in the GA world, he is a two-time Master CFI and has been flying for over 40 years. He earned his instrument rating in a Cessna 150 with vacuum tube radios, but he's flown behind a GNS530W in his personal Cessna 182 for a decade now and will bring his engaging and relaxed presentation style home to you.
Join host Captain Brian Schiff and presenter Captain Mike Jesch for this re-introduction to the wonders of modern GPS navigators. Using the Garmin simulator as well as photos and videos from his own airplane, we will illustrate, demonstrate, and educate on the basics.
A recording of this webinar will be made available shortly after the program finishes.
