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 FAA needs to reform its regulatory and certification processes, including changing the third class medical, AOPA told a House Aviation Subcommittee roundtable.
Pilots focus on preheating the engine during cold weather, but what about the cockpit? More than 30 percent of an aircraft's value is often tied up in the panel.
AOPA connected with hundreds of pilots, aircraft owners, and aviation enthusiasts during the thirty-second Northwest Aviation Conference held in Puyallup, Washington, Feb. 21 and 22.
