Garmin GNS 430/530 Holding Patterns

Date and Time:
Friday, June 25, 2021, starting at 17:00 Pacific Daylight Time (18:00 MDT; 19:00 CDT; 20:00 EDT; 14:00 HST; 16:00 AKDT; 17:00 Arizona; Saturday, June 26, 2021 00:00 GMT)
Mike Jesch and Brian Schiff
Brief Description:

Continuing our series on features of the dated, but very popular Garmin GNS 430/530 GPS navigators, this program will do a deep dive on one of the most often asked questions from the previous programs: How can I use this box to do a holding pattern? As usual, there are lots of ways to skin this cat, and we'll explore a few. We're now well into the 300-level functionality of these units, and some of these techniques are nearing graduate-level work. But, exploring different ways to make them work for you will help you get the most out of them.

Captain Mike Jesch flies a Boeing 787 on long-haul routes at work - with perhaps the most modern aviation navigation system available today. With deep roots in the GA world, he is a two-time Master CFI and has been flying for over 40 years. He earned his instrument rating in a Cessna 150 with vacuum tube radios, but he's flown behind a GNS530W in his personal Cessna 182 for a decade now and will bring his engaging and relaxed presentation style home to you.

Join host Captain Brian Schiff and presenter Captain Mike Jesch for this re-introduction to the wonders of modern GPS navigators. Using the Garmin simulator as well as photos and videos from his own airplane, we will illustrate, demonstrate, and educate on the basics.
