Jeppesen debuts e-learning program for GPSMAP 696

Jeppesen now offers computer-based training for the popular Garmin GPSMAP 696 avionics.

The Jeppesen eLearning program offers scenario-based, guided simulation training, covering all GPSMAP 696 operational aspects for both initial and recurrent training participants, company officials said.

Offered for Windows-based desktop computers, the Jeppesen GPSMAP 696 eLearning program allows pilots to learn at their own pace and practice procedures in a comfortable environment, company officials added. Responding to strong customer demand, the Jeppesen training program incorporates a visual, hands-on approach that enables quick learning of procedures, facilitated by extensive animated sequences with supporting narration. In addition, a realistic emulator feature enhances pilot training with on-screen prompts and real-time feedback, officials said.

“The guided simulation process offered through the Jeppesen GPSMAP 696 eLearning program greatly increases retention of knowledge and is much more effective overall than video-based training,” said Julie Filucci, senior manager, Jeppesen Aviation Training Solutions. “Gaining first-hand experience with the realistic simulation environment offered through this program allows pilots to be comfortable flying with Garmin GPSMAP 696, backed by Jeppesen training.”

In addition to self-paced training and scenario-based guided simulations, the Jeppesen GPSMAP 696 eLearning program offers pilots Demo, Training and Solo modes, progress tracking, and completion certificates to optimize the training experience. The training program also reduces common “heads down” issues associated with learning new avionics systems and refreshes pilot knowledge in recurrent training, Jeppesen officials said.
