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.
Garmin has announced an upgrade making new features and options available to operators of G1000-equipped King Airs in the 200/250/300/350 series.
Garmin popularized synthetic vision with the G1000 six years ago and now offers it on an app.
Robinson Helicopter continues to push forward with improvements and reported strong yearly results.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
