July 24, 2019 AirVenture, Oshkosh WI – Pilots can look forward to a new King Schools Flying The Garmin GTN 650/750 Course to be released in October. However, they don’t have to wait to get started since KING has released the first four lessons as a free video course, “Say Hello to the Garmin 650/750”. The free course includes lessons on the GTN Home Page, Start-up Pages and Knobs, The Direct To Key and Nav/Com Tuning and Volume.
King Schools Co-Chairman John King said, “This free course welcomes you to the rewarding world of flying with the Garmin GTN 750 or GTN 650. These wonderful systems will enhance your situational awareness and reduce your workload better than any other navigation system that has come before. Our goal is that when you get done with this course, you’ll be able to operate both the 750 and 650 very competently and take full advantage of what they can do for you. Your GTN will be a big help in your most important job as a pilot –risk management.”
The other King Co-Chairman, Martha King, added, “The advanced touch screen technology of the Garmin GTN 750 and 650 is an absolute dream when you know how to use it. This course is much more than a manual or simple how-to video. The on-screen graphics demonstrating the operations are easy to follow and will have you up to speed quickly and efficiently The videos use vivid real-life scenarios with clear instructions that prepare you so well that when you get in the airplane, your hands and eyes will automatically go to the right place.”
This course is free and available at KingSchools.com/HelloGTN . The complete course will be available in October of 2019 and will have a retail price of $179.
King Schools has also released two additional free courses for pilots or anyone who is interested in the speed and thrill of turbine engines. High Speed Flight & Understanding the Mach Meter are courses that cover instruments and principles involved in operating jet aircraft.
Martha King is the instructor in both Understanding the Mach Meter and High Speed Flight. The courses show you the information you need to correctly read your Mach Meter, which is the ratio of your aircraft’s true airspeed to the speed of sound. In High Speed Flight, you will see the surprising effects of travelling closer to the speed of sound, such as the Critical Mach Number, Dutch Roll and the importance of vortex generators.
