(Re)Introduction to the Garmin GNS 430/530 Part 8 - Cruise Flight Techniques
Cruise Flight Basics Using the Popular Garmin GNS 430 and 530 Navigator
Date and Time:
Monday, August 29, 2022, 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; Tuesday, August 30, 2022 00:00 GMT)
Mike Jesch and Brian Schiff
Brief Description:

In this episode, having recently completed a couple long distance cross country flights over the last few weeks, Mike will take us through some in flight techniques illustrating how he uses the GNS530W in his airplane to monitor progress, facilitate navigation, keep an eye on the weather, and make better in flight decisions.

Though they are now somewhat dated, the Garmin GNS530 and 430 remain ubiquitous in the GA fleet. These powerful navigation devices remain somewhat mysterious to many aviators, so Cap'n Mike will demystify the basics of this very capable equipment. Whether you've had one for years, found a used one on eBay last week, or recently bought an airplane that came with one of these installed, you're sure to understand this gear better after this webinar.

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.
