Garmin now offers expanded pilot training opportunities and a larger selection of training locations, the company said this week. Scheduled classes for the GTN 650/750 touchscreen navigator series and G500/G600 glass flight-display systems are available, as well as on-demand classes for the G1000, G3000 and G5000 integrated flight decks. Most classes are to be taught at Garmin Headquarters in Olathe, Kansas. But there are also classes scheduled in Vero Beach, Florida; Salem, Oregon; Frederick, Maryland; and Chandler, Arizona. E-learning options are also available.
Garmin's G500/G600 and GTN 650/750 two-day pilot-training course is offered at headquarters six times this year. One class will also be offered in Florida, Oregon, Maryland and Arizona for a higher fee. For pilots interested in learning more about the GTN 650/750 touchscreen series, classes lasting 1.5 days are available four times throughout 2017, taking place at headquarters. Classes on the G1000, G3000 and G5000 are tailored specifically to the pilot’s aircraft type and flight operations, so those courses are offered on demand dependent upon resource availability. Self-paced online classes are available for the G3000 and G5000 Integrated Flight Decks, Link 2000+, and GTN 650/750 Essentials and Weather Radar Operations.
The class in Vero Beach, Florida, is scheduled for the end of February at Flight Safety Academy. At the end of June, the Salem, Oregon, class will be held at the Garmin AT facility. The class in Frederick, Maryland, is scheduled for the end of September at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Assn. National Aviation Community Center. The class in Chandler, Arizona, is scheduled for the beginning of November at Garmin’s facility.
