New, comprehensive guide helps pilots flying in twenty-three aircraft models equipped with the G3000 or G5000!

What do some fighter jets, light business jets, turboprops and even Joby Aviation’s eVTOL all have in common? They all use, or plan to use, the Garmin G3000 or G5000 glass cockpit! The Garmin G3000 and G5000 are used in twenty-three aircraft models, and manufacturers have announced plans to use them in a half dozen other models. Now there’s a new source of information for pilots flying these aircraft: Max Trescott's G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit Handbook!

Max Trescott, the 2008 National Flight Instructor of the Year, uses a narrative approach to explaining the G3000 and G5000 from a pilot’s perspective in ways that both beginners and experts can understand. He starts by describing the hardware, including the displays and touchscreen controllers, and then describes how to use each function, including the radios, programming flight plans and instrument approaches, and using the autopilot and electronic checklists. He also teaches the data link weather products available through SiriusXM, ADS-B FIS-B weather, and Garmin Connext Weather. Throughout the book, you’ll find practical tips, gleaned from the industry’s most experienced glass cockpit instructors, on how to use different features. Pilots may want to keep a copy of the book in the cockpit and use the book’s detailed Index, so they can quickly look up how to use a feature. The book is 312 pages and includes 367 color images.

Some of the G3000/G5000-equipped aircraft covered in the book include:

• Cessna Citation M2, CJ3+, Sovereign+, Latitude, Longitude,

Denali, and 10+
