Our PA-28 training aircraft are equipped with the highly capable and widely used Garmin 430 Com/Nav GPS systems; this system combines radio, VOR navaid and GPS functions, making it essential for students and private pilot hirers to be familiar with it’s operation.

 Garmin have helpfully made a PC-based simulator & manual available, and we regard this simulator as an invaluable training aid at GoFly – it’s much easier (and cheaper!) to familiarise students with the system in slow time using a desk computer.

We’d recommend booking groundschool with your friendly flight instructor for a full in-depth brief on the system, but should you wish to practise at home, the simulator can be downloaded,free of charge, via this link (many thanks to Garmin!)
