Electronic instrumentation, commonly known as “glass cockpit,” is state of the art flight control and navigation. A flight simmer’s ability to operate an aircraft with glass cockpits places him among aviation’s most advanced pilots.
In his self-instructional book, Glass Simming, flight-sim expert and author Bill Stack provides comprehensive and detailed instructions and information that enables flight simmers to maximize their challenge and enjoyment with glass cockpits.
Glass Simming focuses on the Garmin G1000® glass cockpit in Microsoft Flight Simulator’s ® Beechcraft Baron, Cessna Skyhawk and Mooney Bravo. The book simplifies the overall layout of the glass panel and specific functions of all instruments and controls. It explains all screens such as the primary flight, multifunction and aircraft-system displays in detail. It clearly describes all controls by type and function. And it explains the fundamental differences between the G1000’s multifunction display and the Garmin GPS units available for other MSFS aircraft.
Numerous full-color and annotated screen captures of the Garmin G1000® panel and its instruments and controls are used throughout the book to describe and explain everything seen and used in this advanced instrument panel.
