Max Trescott's Garmin G1000 Glass Cockpit Handbook

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.

Soft cover, 312 pages, 56 in color, illustrated with more than 300 computer screen shots and photographs, glossary and index.

An excellent reference
by Russell C. from El Paso TX USA 

Pros: Very readable and detailed
Cons: Detailed--this is not a quick-reference book.

Best G1000 Review
by Brian from Hilton Head SC USA 

Pros: Intuitive and logical
Cons: Not enough color pictures
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!

G1000 training at its best

Time For A Re-write
by napleskid from Louisville KY USA 

Pros: Comprehensive information for the G1000 panel
Cons: New books need to written to accommodate the growing differences in the various G1000 platforms.
Review: A ton of great information in this book. Just not that easy to find it. I purchased especially for the Cirrus Perspective platform. While reading a chapter, your mind is filled with specific information only to be told at the end of the chapter to disregard most everything you just read and refer to another chapter for the Perspective panel. I really believe that separate publications should now be devoted to the specific G1000 platforms. I really learned a lot from this book, so it still earns 4 stars. However during the evolution of the G1000 platforms, this book has not evolved to support them. As new software is developed, you shouldn't simply throw it in as an appendix at the end of the book.

Necessarily Dry & Repetitive
by NORMAN from New York NY USA

Right on the money
by Phil from Portland OR USA 

Pros: Easy reading
Review: I purchased Glass Cockpit BEFORE the Diamond DA42(NG) X-Plane simulator was available. Glass Cockpit makes mention of the DA42.

The Glass Cockpit discussion of the PFD is really helpful. And the presentation of the MFD is way over my head but there when I want it.

Very Good Intro to Glass Cockpit
by Mark from New York NY USA 

Pros: Very readable.
Review: After 30 years, I am considering a return to flying. I knew a lot had changed including GPS navigation and the digitalization of the cockpit. I found this book to be an excellent presentation of the glass cockpit. I did not read it cover to cover as I only wanted to learn the general idea of what was out there. Additionally, I did not feel that "learning" this book was necessary unless I was actively using glass cockpit instrumentation.

Review: This is one of the best and easiest ways to learn the G1000. It is organized and written in a real world approach that makes it very easy to comprehend. I use it as a reference guide to look up things that I may have not used for a while. It will turn you into a g1000 genius.

Good but a lot to absorb
by A Customer from Waxhaw NC USA 

Pros: A lot of great information if you have time to sort it out
Cons: Information overload at times
Review: I liked the manual however I wanted a very simplified guide to just get started. Everything that I tried with the G1000 was not approached from an instructional standpoint, e.g. Simple, intermediate, complex. My instructor was unable to break it down either. This book helps but could have been organized better.

very good book
by Michael J. from Oakland CA USA 

Review: A very good book but what you really need to go with this book is the PC G1000 Trainer from Garmin then when you read the book many things become very obvious, they are less obvious just by reading about it. I don't think buying a CD course makes any sense - expensive and doesn't give you hands-on experience.

A good place to start
by thomas from asheville NC USA 

Pros: comprehensive; reasonable price;
Cons: looking for Beech specific application; probably not available except with pilot handbook
Review: A very comprehensive book that can be used for initial training and for later review. The simulated flight puts much of the book learning to a practical application. More of that would be welcome. Would like to see more examples of mistakes pilots make with the G1000. Perhaps a chapter or essentials or core knowledge if that is possible.

Good read, very informative

a good G1000 general reference
by barry from Normal IL USA 

Pros: good walk-through of G1000 operation
Cons: see above
Review: I had read and enjoyed the previous edition and purchased this one to better understand the newer Garmin features like WAAS. The book does a good job with them while mostly retaining the style of the earlier edition. It seemed, though, that Trescott was stumbling in trying to cover all the differences with all the different G1000 installations, giving this edition a more broken-up feel when reading it. The "newer features" chapter towards the end of the book left me wishing it had been incorporated into the earlier chapters.

Didnt really add much to what I got from the Garmin manual
by Gerald from Minnetrista MN USA 

Review: Besides a couple of shortcuts, I didn't get much added expertise from the book. Reading the G1000 manual is more effective in my opinion. I thought a prose, first person discussion would shorten the learning curve a bit...it didnt.

Reads more like a textbook, not a quick reference handbook
by Mike from New York NY USA 

Pros: Lot of information
Cons: Not laid out for quick reference
Review: This book is meant to be read start to finish, and is not laid out for glancing at information quickly. It contains a lot of information on the system, however many sections had footnotes advising to check the appendix for updates, rather than updating the original text.

Most concise, throrough G1000 course yet
by A.B from Scottsdale AZ USA 

Pros: Everything
Cons: None
Review: I first bought the manual on recommendation of a CFI. Although I already had a G1000 course by King Schools, the Max Trescott manual is outstanding, very detailed and well put together. The CD Rom is a work of art, very interactive and easy to learn. A fantastic product by a CFI who truly knows how to teach and put a lot of time into designing a reference product. Thank you Max!

A Great Introduction to the G1000
by Larry from Tempe AZ USA 

Pros: The screen shots describing the steps inthe process are very helpful.
Cons: Could use additional graphic examples.
Review: I am very experienced at operating FMS equipped, transport category aircraft. Those being B737, 757, and the Airbus A319/320/ and 321. I approached this manual as Differences Training and it served me well. Of note, I am stunned that I can now have greater capabilities in a C-172 than that of my current A320. I am now considering attending a factory certified training program. This book is great for preparing for school. You will be more than "One up" on your classmates.

Great Book - Well worth the $
by Sam from Schererville IN USA 

Pros: Easy to understand, lots of great information!
Cons: NONE
Review: Excellent, concise book on the operation of a Garmin G1000 avionics suite. In my opinion, no one does a better job of explaining the basic and advanced operations along with the nuances of the G1000 than Max Trescott. In fact, on another point, I had a technical issue with a Max Trescott G1000 training CD and he personally responded via email within hours with a resolution. BUY THIS BOOK AND BUY THE MAX TRESCOTT G1000 VFR/IFR CDROM Course! You won't be sorry.

Easy read for G1000 intro
by A Customer from Texas

Good content, layout is ok
by David from TX USA 

Pros: Content is very good
Cons: Updates have been added to an appendix rather than in-line text
Review: I have found this book to be informative on how to use the G1000. However, you really need to use this book in conjunction with a hands-on tool, like a G1000 simulator, to make the best use of it. The thing I dislike the most about this book is that the updates are in the back of the book in an appendix and some of the updates referenced are a little difficult to find.

More then I had hope for
by Ray from Raleih, NC 

Pros: Simple, easy reading, Gets you the basics quickly.
Cons: None
Review: I mainly purchased this product to help me understand Microsoft’s Flight Simulation FSX Deluxe edition. I am not a real pilot YET, soon I will be. I have over 500 hours on MS FSX, so I wanted to take it to the next level and try to be as realistic as possible. So I was very happy and very surprised that reading this book (for real pilots) that I actually knew most of the things he was talking about. If you have done any time using MS FSX and have flown with the Garmin 500, the first several chapters are redundant, so I skipped to the last couple of chapters and that's where I spent all my time. Learning the IFR approaches and understanding the go round procedures. Word of caution for us simmers, if you plan on doing some serious flying using the G1000 and this book or for that matter the Garmin 500, you will need to have the approach plates, it really makes a difference. Also, MS FSX doesn't reproduce the G1000 exactly, so some information he talks about you will not be able to do...bummer. I would suggest that for real world pilots that they purchase MS FSX deluxe or any other software for the G1000 and learn it before they take to the sky...i think it would make a world of difference.

Tremendous teaching on G1000
by Martin Sacks from Baltimore, MD 

Pros: real world examples, practical teaching, easy to read
Cons: book is somewhat generic since diff MFRs implement the G1000 differently
Review: Very impressed with this book. I had read hundreds of pages of the books that Garmin produced and, don't get me wrong, they're good.

The difference is that Mr. Trescott's book gives real world scenarios of how the various functions are used so it is easier to apply and then retain the info.

It's o.k.
by A Customer from USA 

Review: Really good reference. It would be "great" if it had more pictures of softkeys, and where, as well as a photo of which one to push for whatever information you need. The CD is probably better but relatively expensive. When you actually fly the G-1000 you will probably be overwhelmed at first...but like anything else....practice practice practice.

An essential for the transition to glass.
by Jason from South Dakota 

Pros: Easy to understand and well laid out.
Cons: Refears to his simulator software often, which I do not have. Separate purchase required.
Review: I've been flying the local FBO's G1000 equipped 182 for about a month now. I bought Max's book before taking the airplane on a 16 hour cross country from South Dakota over the mountains to Phoenix and back. It was an invaluable resource and I'll never fly without it in my flight bag. So much easier and to the point than even the G1000 owner's manual.
