Written by a Max Trescott, Master CFI and the 2008 National Certificated Flight Instructor of the Year, this book makes it easy for you to quickly become an expert on operating and programming the G1000 system in any aircraft.

There is a revolution sweeping through general aviation. Two years ago, few aircraft shipped with glass cockpits. Now, nearly 100% of all new GA aircraft ship with glass cockpits, most of them Garmin G1000TM. Whether you're an owner, potential owner, or renter, you'll want to become expert at flying these exciting new aircraft and benefit from their enhanced safety.

Max Trescott, a Master CFI who's trained and taught extensively in glass cockpit aircraft, takes a narrative approach to explaining the G1000 in ways that both beginners and experts can understand. Not only is every system feature explained, but information on when and why you'd use a particular function are also included. The book is loaded with illustrations and "tips" gleaned from leading glass cockpit instructors around the country.

You'll learn about the PFD and MFD displays, audio panel, programming the GPS, electrical systems, using the autopilot and dealing with emergencies. Instrument pilots will enjoy a detailed discussion of instrument approaches, integrated with use of the autopilot, will help you become a pro. Advanced features, optional in some aircraft, such as TIS and TAS traffic monitoring systems, Stormscopes, and Terrain Awareness Warning Systems (TAWS) are discussed in detail. You'll also learn to use all of the data link weather features, like NEXRAD radar, satellite images, freezing level, winds aloft, AIRMETs, SIGMETS, TFRs,and METARs available through XM Satellite weather. Someday, all planes will be flown this way and with Max Trescott's G1000 and Perspective Glass Cockpit Handbook, you can learn how to fly them today.

Learn about all G1000 and Perspective features & differences
Get the single source of information that educates pilots about all of the features and benefits of flying the G1000, and how features vary among aircraft manufacturers. Whether you fly a Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, Columbia, Diamond, King Air, Kodiak, Mooney, Piper, Phenom, or Socata TBM 850, you'll learn which G1000 or Perspective features apply to your particular aircraft. Or, if you're flying a Very Light Jet (VLJ) like the Cessna Mustang or Diamond D-Jet, this book will help you prepare for your type rating and recurrent training.

New 5th Edition
The new Fifth edition includes dozens of new tips and features for G1000 and Perspective glass cockpits, including Cirrus SR20 and SR22 Aircraft. Chapter 11 on Instrument Flying was completely rewritten to make it easier for pilots to understand the many nuances of using the G1000 and Perspective for instrument flight.  A rewritten autopilot chapter covers the KAP 140 and all three versions of the Garmin GFC700 integrated autopilot, vertical navigation, and vertical flight plans.

Max Trescott’s G1000 Glass Cockpit Handbook belongs in every pilot’s flight bag and is the perfect complement to Max Trescott’s Garmin G1000 CD-ROM Course.

Great learning tool and reference source

  • By Tom from Lansing MI USA on Friday, February 19, 2016
  • Pros: Max's writing style, like he is talking to the reader, not a dry textbook of facts.

Best G1000 Review

  • By Brian from Hilton Head SC USA on Wednesday, October 21, 2015
  • Pros: Intuitive and logical
  • Review: All of the aviation navigators come with a user manual. Those manuals are clearly not written by pilots. After reading the G 1000 manual twice, it was only after reading Max's book that I got a real feel as a pilot in how to use the G1000. Max breaks down the logic into pilot user ftiendly terms.
    It is like having an instructor sit next to you while learning.
    This is an excellent resource for a complicated avionics suite. Very well done!
