“Garmin continues to offer cutting-edge training solutions to an
advancing avionics market,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of
marketing and sales. “As flight decks continue to become more
sophisticated and offer additional features and capabilities, the desire
for off-aircraft training outside of a traditional classroom setting is
in high demand.”
The G5000 eLearning program is highly
interactive and leverages the latest technology to help customers take
advantage of all the features an integrated flight deck has to offer.
The G5000 web-based course offers three learning modes: demonstration,
guided interaction, and solo.
When a customer logs in to the
online training course, they may select which area of operation they
wish to explore and watch a multi-media demonstration of that task, such
as loading a flight plan. The course then permits the practice of
essential areas of operation using a guided simulation system with
on-screen prompts. Solo mode allows pilots to practice each highlighted
area of operation, without the use of onscreen prompts ensuring each
task is fully comprehended. Pilots may easily apply the information
discussed in a particular lesson and quickly relate it to any phase of
To help flight departments better manage their pilots’
progress, the G5000 web-based training course was developed within a
learning content management system allowing instructors to facilitate
student learning. Features include a discussion board, ability to
journal, and add documents for flight department access, such as a
flight operation manual. At the conclusion of the course, a report and
completion certificate is available for documentation purposes.
eLearning is available for purchase as a 180-day subscription and is
updated periodically to ensure the most current information is
available. Online training may be conveniently accessed using a
computer, tablet, or smartphone with Internet access. To purchase the
