July 25, 2019 – AirVenture, Oshkosh WI – Learning to use new avionics systems can be a challenge for pilots. Garmin makes courses available for their customers but delivering them to pilots requires access to the Internet. The King Schools internet learning platform, iLearn, makes it easy for pilots to take the new Garmin-produced G5000 Essentials, G5000 Essential Plus and Aviation Weather Radar 2.0 courses.
These courses add to the range of Garmin avionics training that King has provided for over 14 years. The courses included are on the GNS 430/530 and G1000 avionics. Plus, a new KING Garmin GTN 650/750 course will be available in October of 2019.
King CEO Barry Knuttila commented, “We genuinely enjoy helping pilots get the most out of their amazing Garmin equipment. These new courses focus on the Pro/Jet market, and the King Schools iLearn platform will give those pilots easy access to get proficient quickly.”
Pilots can access the King Garmin avionics courses using any Internet-connected desktop or mobile device. Many of the courses can be taken even when offline on iPads and iPhones using the King Companion App. The courses are designed to be self-paced and lessons can be retaken as many times as desired.
The Garmin G5000 Essentials 2.0 and 2.0 Plus courses prepare pilots to get the most out of their avionics using videos, graphics and explanations that introduce users to the G5000, explain Line Replaceable Units (LRUs), and demonstrate the pilot-aircraft interface. The courses also include a flight scenario.
The Garmin Aviation Weather Radar 2.0 course introduces pilots to radar fundamentals, operational principles, industry standard practices and operational considerations and techniques for all phases of flight. This course also addresses the features, functions and operation of airborne weather radars: GWX 70, GWX 75 and GWX 80, as well risk management related to weather threats.
