Our G1000 Simulator in Transition Training

Garmin Systems Trainer

Built upon the foundations of the Gleim Virtual Cockpit, Ortega Aviation has expanded and redesigned this simulator into a robust and capable Garmin training platform.  Encompassing the G430, G530, G650, and G750, being some of the most popular models in GA, as well as the G5 PFD & HSI, this new simulator’s purpose-built mission is to provide both initial & transitional training in any of those models.  It’s main focus is transitional training for those pilots who are coming out of an aircraft equipped with the older 530/430 family and moving into one equipped with the 750/650 family.  The beauty of this simulator is it’s ability to have all four models running together in concert, allowing a training pilot to see the differences between them live, runtime.  The result, a huge cost savings to the training pilot, both in actual flight time within the real aircraft as well as a huge reduction in the learning curve and total time invested in the training cycle, all within a stress and risk-free environment.
