Flight 1 Aviation Technologies claims its product is a cost-effective yet powerful way to learn to use the Garmin G1000

Flight One Aviation Technologies has released a high-fidelity Garmin G1000 all-glass avionics suite simulation that interfaces with Microsoft® Flight Simulator X, Microsoft® ESP™, and Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D™.

According to a company press release, the Flight1 Tech G1000 Student Simulator provides pilots, flight instructors, flight school owners, and home cockpit builders with a cost-effective yet powerful way to learn to use the Garmin G1000 and maintain proficiency.

“Unlike part-task trainers like the G1000 simulator available from Garmin, the Flight1 Tech G1000 Student Simulator works together with Microsoft® Flight Simulator X, Microsoft® ESP™, or Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D™ to provide pilots with an immersive training experience,” explains Vice-President Jim Rhodes.

“The G1000 Student Simulator provides a rich avionics simulation, and the flight simulation provides an unmatched aircraft and environmental simulation. By combining both, pilots can learn and master the G1000 in the same cognitive environment in which they’ll use it. They have to manage the avionics while simultaneously managing the challenges of flying the airplane.”

The G1000 Student Simulator is available in a Student version for personal, non-commercial use (that features photorealistic bezel graphics with functional buttons and knobs) and in a Hardware version designed for commercial use (or for non-commercial use in a home cockpit) that interfaces with the SimKits TRC1000 Glass Cockpit. Future plans include a hardware version designed to interface with the Precision Flight Controls Modular Flight Deck.

The MFD includes a highly realistic Navigation map as well as Navigation, Waypoint, Auxiliary, and Nearest page groups. Direct To, Flight Plan, and Procedure functionality (including Departures, Arrivals, and Approaches) is also provided, and flight plans can be created, saved, and loaded. Map symbology includes cities, major highways, railroad tracks, city and state names, and water body names. Basic visual Obstacle Warnings are displayed on the Navigation and Inset Maps, basic aural TAWS-B Alerts are provided, and basic Traffic Information Service (TIS) functionality is also simulated.

The G1000 Student Simulator includes an integrated Garmin GFC 700 digital Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) that realistically models the Flight Director and Autopilot. Flight Director annunciations and Autopilot status are displayed on the PFD. Real-world vertical and lateral modes modeled include Flight Level Change (FLC), Vertical Navigation (VPTH and ALTV), and Glidepath (GP) for WAAS approaches.

“No matter what the platform, we’ve always pushed the limits of what it’s capable of,” says Rhoads.
