The latest generation of
high-tech avionics requires a little study in order to get the hang
of the many capabilities that they present. The FAA, of course, is
well aware of this and has recently made available an online
tutorial program for Garmin 530/430 users - for FREE.
The program consists of six units, each of which is
approximately 45 minutes to one-hour duration.
The program will take you through the pages of the GNS-530/430,
and demonstrate the correct data entry method in order to achieve
the anticipated display, and comply with ATC instructions.
The course is offered in two formats, one for Real Player users,
another for Windows users. If using Windows or Macintosh software,
click on the appropriate link. We suggest that you print the page
in order to obtain the instructions, and the table of contents.
The table of contents outlines the topics of each unit, however,
we suggest that you begin with unit one and proceed through the
entire program. Also, the Pilot Guides for the GNS-530 & 430
are available in PDF format on the site.
The FAA notes that, "Our effort is to assist you to avoid the
human factor errors that may hinder your operation of the
GNS-530/430. To accomplish improving your operational understanding
of the GNS-530/430, we employed scenario based demonstrations and
explanations of the various navigation procedures performed with
