Garmin Advanced


8 Hours – Ground & Flight Training

You will receive everything included in the Garmin Basic Course, in addition to IFR procedures.  Your training will include instrument approaches (VOR, GPS/WAAS, ILS), as well as arrival and departure procedures.  If you are new to WAAS, this provides the opportunity to learn about the benefits of WAAS and how to fly the new WAAS approaches (LNAV, LNAV/VNAV, and LPV).

Garmin Mastery

Fly Effectively

12 Hours – Ground & Flight Training

This course includes all elements of the Basic and Advanced course, plus techniques for the advanced pilot.  You will learn how to plan your descent using the Garmin Vertical Navigation tool (VNAV), create custom waypoints for private airstrips or favorite landmarks, and use the OBS feature to select a desired “radial” to a GPS fix.  Through scenario-based training, you will learn what to do if any system failures occur and the appropriate actions for a successful outcome.  You will also learn how to customize the map settings to present information most effectively for your needs.
