The G1000 system in flight. What more can I say? Simply magnificent from a pilot's point of view. Operated by Epic Aviation.

Interesting, the pilot looks slightly out of place. One of the best G1000 pics I've seen on airliners.net, however.

Nice display of the G1000 in actual use...in an aircraft that I could actually fly on a route I'd be likely to take! It's nice to see a lady in the left seat, too...at least, I hope that fingernail polish indicates a lady...

Great picture of advaced technology in general aviation. But to me a glass cokpit is much more useful in a airliner than in a skyhawk. But it's true that a GPS is useful in VFR navigation.

What do you mean, the pilot looks out of place? Because she's a woman?

It's amazing how many assumptions can be made about the woman in the left seat, when you can only see her THUMB! Great Shot =)

Definetly an incredible system, I had the opportunity to sit in a 172 that had the G1000 at an open house. You displayed it very nicely!

Well, she is demonstrating perfectly how the yoke should be held while flying a light GA aircraft like this beautiful C-172SP and its very useful and practical (IFR & VFR) G1000.

It's not the pilot that looks out of place, it's the darn panel that doesn't belong into a Skyhawk but rather into a gambling hall.

Ok, Fine so it looks pretty, but it's just an instrument panel in just a C172. Sorry to sound jaded but I've flown them and it's not a whole lot more than another instrument panel with a big pretty moving map.

The G1000 is the single largest advancement in General Aviation Ever! In the past 50 years, the airplanes havn't changed much at all. The 172 is the perfect example of that. However, the G1000 is an incredible step forward. To anyone who doesn't think so, obviously you don't understand what all the system has to offer. Nice shot, Eric

I've also flown the C-172S with the G-1000, and to tell you the truth, I couldn't think of a better airplane I'd want to solo in on my upcoming 16th birthday!

These new all glass cockpits are amazing! I love the calrity of the picture, and it's amazing that there is hardly a gauge in sight, except for the standby gauges at the bottom.

Great G1000 photo, the clarity is excellent. The G1000 is a great tool for private pilots, however IMHO a student pilot should never train with one of these cockpits.

Ah ha! I know exactly where she is flying.

KITX aka Titusville. Right next to the Cape Canaveral Shuttle Launch Pad.

125.800 is Daytona App/Dep. KDAB

I currently go to school at ERAU (KDAB) and am very familiar with this aircraft and area.

Beautiful picture.
