Navigate Precisely Anywhere in Your Simulator

Glass instrument panels are the mainstays of modern aviation. The Garmin G1000 is used by general and commercial aviation alike because it makes navigation information easy to read and use. Pilots always have a clear and concise picture of where they are and where they are going.

In Microsoft Flight Simulator™ 2020, the Garmin G1000 or variations are available in these aircraft:

  • Beechcraft Baron G58
  • Beechcraft Bonanza
  • Beechcraft King Air 350
  • Cessna 172 Skyhawk
  • Cessna 208B Grand Caravan
  • Daher TBM 930
  • Diamond DA40 and DA42
  • Extra 330 LT (variation)
  • Flight Design CTSL (variation)
  • JMB VL-3 (variation)

Focus and Limits

This video focuses on using the MFD and PFD in the Garmin G1000 glass panel for cross-country navigation. It uses Microsoft Flight Simulator™ 2020 because of its popularity. Basic principles and methods can be applied to similar navigation devices and other simulation programs.

Being limited to navigation, this video does not explain everything a G1000 does such as autopilot and radios. It does not explain instrument approach procedures, which are explained in a dedicated video. It does not explain making and filing flight plans, which are explained in a separate video.

Free Bonus Items

To help you maximize your simulations, these items are included free of charge:

  • Transcript of the entire video
  • V-Speed card
  • A concise list of MSFS 2020 keyboard shortcuts

Relevancy Statement

My flight-sim videos and books are only for home flight-simulation computer games. They are based on real aviation laws, regulations, and procedures so home flight simulation enthusiasts can maximize their enjoyment. Because some aspects of home flight simulation games are not exactly like real-world aviation, some information in my videos and books is not exactly like real-world flight. That is why these videos and books are not intended for and should not be used for real-world flight or lessons. No liability for misapplication of this flight simulation video is accepted. – Bill Stack

Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed

If you can show that the content of this video is not as described, your money will be refunded. If you find facts that you believe are in error, please let me know so I can evaluate them. – Bill Stack
