Pilotworkshops.com, which acquired user-friendly manual company ZD Publishing last year, recently released manuals for the GTN 650 and 750.
With an all-new interface and logic of operation, the Garmin GTN 650 and 750 represent a challenge for aircraft owners who have upgraded to the touch-screen GPS/NAV/COMM units. Although Garmin’s manuals go through all the relevant functions, Pilotworkshops.com believes it has a better solution with its “pilot friendly” versions.
Like all the ZD Publishing manuals, those for the GTN 650 and 750 are organized in a step-by-step manner to help pilots work through specific scenarios. They are available in print or electronic formats, and cost $44.95.

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) welcomed a Sept. 18 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announcement that it would host a “call to action summit” to address the barriers and potential challenges associated with equipping tens of thousands of aircraft for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) by the Jan. 1, 2020 deadline. ADS-B is a critical component of the NextGen air traffic modernization program.
