Garmin GNS 530 / GNS 430 Computer-based Trainer

ElectronicFlight Solutions' Computer-based GPS Navigation Trainer — Garmin 530/430

Certainly one of the most innovative products is the Garmin GNS 530 and 430 IFR certified GPS/Nav/Com. These systems include a vast amount of capabilities, including full color moving map and MFD capabilities. However, the highly capable nature of this new equipment also creates an overload of information that some pilots are having difficulty absorbing. While the 200+ page Garmin Pilot’s Guide should be utilized in the cockpit as a reference, it leaves much room for improvement when training pilots on the efficient use of the GNS 530/430.

After successful completion of this training module, the operation and familiarity of the Garmin GPS should become second nature when it counts the most—under high-workload situations. At the very core of the self-paced CBT (computer-based training) program is the ElectronicFlight Complete Learning™ Methodology that focuses on the following basic elements:

  • Instill conceptual knowledge, instead of rote memorization
  • Implant mental models (a picture imprinted into permanent memory)
  • Present the conceptual organization of a system
  • Provide requisite knowledge using highly graphical methods
  • Reinforce knowledge with targeted practice exercises
  • Implement feedback and remedial review when checked for retention
