N68182 (cn 18281498) Taken just after emerging from a stationary front, which, with a little help from the G1000, NEXRAD base reflectivity, XM lightning, ATC, and some good preflight planning, we penetrated with no problem at all. The G1000 is a revolutionary system that improves a pilots' level situational aware vastly over a conventional cockpit. The G1000 has so many features that, when properly used by a well trained pilot, make the it more potent than alot of jet cockpits. En route EVB to JNX.

THe picture itself is great, very sharp, the sunset is very visible and there's not much detail loss due to the great lighting. On the glass Vs analog training/flying.. well, glass is an advantage for flying, but truth is that "learning" in a glass cockpit doesn't make a difference... I mean, I went from analog cockpits to a FBW A320, and to be honest, learning to operate a glass cockpit isn't that difficult anyway, had I flown in a glass 172 it wouldn't have, because the systems in the G1000 are completely different from the ones in a modern airliner... it's not like transitioning from the 320 to the 330, where there are so many similarities...

I am so pleased to see GA embracing the technology of glass cockpits in both normal ops and training situations. Being an airline pilot who had the opportunity during my training to use glass technology, it gave me a step ahead of the rest resulting in me getting hired with 230 hours TT. Whether or not people are willing to change and embrace the new technology, students should be encouraged to use all available resources inside and out of their aircraft. This is called situational awareness and glass cockpit or not, a student who understands the importance of this is a safe pilot in any aircraft. Great shot, gotta love the sunsets, it makes this job worth every minute

I would agree with the basic notion of both views expressed here. Basic training ought not to be conducted in an a/c like this using all the systems in question. At the same time, one should be ready to use all technology when needed. The above pic doesnot make it clear if this was a training flight of the level of Private or even Commercial level. Who knows it might as well be an IFR training, in which case, I would say stick to the regs and not use some of the weather systems. If the flight is not safe or possible without it, stay home and not waste time in the air. Though a flight or two just to learn everything available is just as important. What crosses the line is the mold of permanet dependence.

It's great to see this kind of technology on a light GA plane. This might really help them stay out of trouble.

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 7, 2006:
I have to agree with the guy from Germany. The G1000 is a great system, dont get me wrong, but it already has everything for you up front which most likely is not a good tool to train a student pilot. I say if your gonna learn fly in this beutiful bird, then you should use it as little as possible because
not every plane has this system, and you will need to learn to be just as good without it. I still wish i could buy one of these lol.

A photo of a 182 with modern instrumentation. (G1000).

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 25, 2006:
To the visitor from Germany: it's still possible to get yourself into bad situations with the G1000. It's just a different type of decision making than when you don't have these nice tools available. Great plane.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 23, 2006:
What a shot, must be nice to fly such a great airplane, I'm suck in an old lear that loud, tight and not very comfortable.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 22, 2006:
Wow - a true dream machine. What a difference from the old straight-tail 172 that I own!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon May 22, 2006:
Please someone be so kind and explain to me what improved situational awareness is good for a trainee, if he or she never experienced the undesired situation in the first place.
Training effect = nothing, nill.
Under these considerations the pictured airplane is a bad trainer.
Greetings from somebody who worked as a flight instructor for many years, and whos students are flying now with major carriers.
