Garmin G1000 Instruction
As a Cessna FITS (FAA Industry Training Standards) Accepted Instructor, Chris specializes in providing flight and ground training in Garmin G1000 integrated cockpit systems for all Cessna single-engine piston aircraft including C-172, C-182, C-206 and Cessna TTx (formerly the Columbia COL4 and/or Cessna Corvalis TT) models.
Whether you are interested in initial transition training and/or recurrent training for G1000 equipped aircraft, or avionics specific training for almost any make and model equipment, Chris has the expertise to help you become a safer and more confident pilot.
The purposed of this training program is to familiarize the Pilot in Training (PT) with the functionality of the G1000 and aircraft systems.
The ground-training segment is conducted with the assistance of the Cessna FITS Accepted Training Program and the Garmin G1000 PC-Based Trainer. Time spent during an instructor-led (Pilot Information Manual) PIM review and cockpit familiarization session may also count towards total ground training required. The flight training segment is completed with the guidance of the FAA Industry Training Standard (FITS) Scenario Based Transition Syllabus and Standards for the Cessna Single Engine Propeller Aircraft and the scripted scenarios developed by the CFAI and accepted by the Cessna Pilot Training Department in Independence, Kansas.
What is FITS?
FAA-Industry Training Standards (FITS)
FITS is focused on the redesign of general aviation training. Instead of training pilots to pass practical test, FITS focuses on expertly managing real-world challenges. Scenario based training is used to enhance the GA pilots’ aeronautical decision making, risk management, and single pilot resource management skills, without compromising basic stick and rudder skills.
The goals of the FITS Training Philosophy in priority of importance are as follows:
1. Higher Order Thinking
a. Aeronautical Decision Making and Situational Awareness
b. Pattern Recognition (Emergency Procedures) and Decision Making
2. Automation Competence
3. Planning and Execution
4. Procedural Knowledge
5. Psychomotor skills
