Elite expands glass fleet with Garmin G1000

ELITE Simulation Solutions now has Garmin G1000-equipped training devices available.

The G1000-equipped devices are part of ELITE’s ongoing glass panel training device development following the debut of its glass panel iGATE featuring the Sagem Avionics Integrated Cockpit Display System (ICDS 2000) at last year’s AirVenture in Oshkosh.

The new training devices are outfitted with the actual G1000 hardware that is being offered as standard equipment from several airframe manufacturers. Each device can be specifically configured with performance data for a single aircraft module selected from various models currently available.

Performance data for additional aircraft models will be available as the G1000-equipped family of aircraft grows.

“Simulation is inevitably going to be taking on a larger role in pilot proficiency and transition training as the number of technically advanced aircraft grows,” says Fred Zanegood, ELITE director of marketing. “As glass becomes more prevalent, so does the concern over how training will have to change to meet the unique demands of this technology.”
