Sporty’s Pilot Training app adds four new Garmin avionics courses

1

Sporty’s Pilot Training app platform has become the go-to app for mobile aviation training, offering a growing collection of courses from Private Pilot prep to advanced avionics and aircraft transitions. In addition to high-quality HD video and animation content, the courses offer unparalleled flexibility by allowing you to access your courses on a wide range of devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android, web browser, AppleTV, RokuTV and Chromecast – all of which keep your progress seamlessly in sync.

In the last two years, Sporty’s Pilot Training app has grown from its initial offering of 6 aviation courses to 17 now. The newest additions come from a partnership between Sporty’s Pilot Shop and Garmin to offer several of Garmin’s new avionics eLearning courses on Sporty’s award-winning platform:

Garmin TXi Essentials Course

Garmin Aviation Weather Radar 2.0 Course

Garmin G5000 Essentials 2.0 Course

Garmin G5000 Plus Essentials 2.0 Course (Autothrottle Airplanes)

These courses use scenario-based video training to ensure you not only know how to operate all the features but how to best use them in all phases of VFR and IFR flying. They incorporate interactive exercises that allow you to take advantage of your mobile device’s touchscreen display to interact with the flight displays through a series of real-world scenarios as if you were actually loading an instrument approach or scanning an active weather system using the radar controls.

Garmin’s courses also include review quizzes to help reinforce keep learning points from the videos and interactive exercises:

After completing each course, you will receive a completion certificate, which is useful for your CFI during a checkout or insurance company as a aircraft owner. Here’s more on what’s covered in each course.

Garmin TXi Essentials Course

Garmin’s TXi series of touchscreen displays have quickly found a home in thousands of general aviation panels. With bright displays, easy-to-use menus, and powerful features, they are the new standard for retrofit glass cockpits. This interactive TXi Essentials eLearning course provides initial instruction on the fundamental operation of these highly-capable systems. Pilots who complete this course will be able to confidently complete standard tasks encountered during a flight, from preflight tests to in-flight navigation.

Garmin Aviation Weather Radar Course

An airborne weather radar can be a great tool to help detect and avoid adverse weather during flight. The Garmin Aviation Weather Radar eLearning course goes beyond the content of weather radar pilot’s guides to help you maximize the benefits of your weather radar system’s capabilities, regardless of brand or model. This course will introduce you to radar fundamentals, operational principles, industry-standard practices and operational considerations and techniques for all phases of flight. This course also addresses the features, functions and operation of three of Garmin’s airborne weather radars: GWX 70, GWX 75 and GWX 80, as well as reviews techniques employed for managing weather threats.

Garmin G5000 and G5000 Plus Courses

The Garmin G5000 flight deck is available in new corporate jet aircraft, like the Citation Longitude, and is also offered as an upgrade for existing turbine aircraft. The Garmin G5000 Essentials 2.0 course provides instruction on the fundamental operation of this advanced flight management system, enabling you to be better prepared for your initial flights.

This course goes beyond the Pilot’s Guide to help you maximize the benefits and capabilities of the system. The course will introduce you to the overall G5000 system, provide an understanding of the specific Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) that comprise the system, describe the pilot-aircraft interface and present a flight scenario that demonstrates use of the system during a typical flight.
