ADS-B DATALINK WEATHER AVAILABLE IN G1000 SKYHAWK

Pilots can now enjoy ADS-B/In-out, N12064

Pilots flying Skyhawk N12064 can now access the full complement of ADS-B benefits via the recently installed Garmin GTX345 transponder and Garmin Connext. In addition to ADS-B Out regulatory compliance, the GTX 345 includes ADS-B In and several Garmin Connext features, significantly expanding the capabilities of the G1000 system.

Connext allows you to wirelessly connect your iPad using Bluetooth to the G1000 and send ADS-B weather and traffic, GPS position data, flight plan information, AHRS and more right to the ForeFlight and Garmin Pilot apps. While pilots can display basic weather information on the G1000 such as regional radar, METARs and TAFs, all ADS-B weather products, like the nationwide radar picture, PIREPs, AIRMETs, TFRs and more, can be displayed on your iPad via ForeFlight or the Garmin Pilot app.

Learn more on connecting your device to the GTX345.

HOW TO FILE VFR FLIGHT PLANS USING THE NEW ICAO FORMAT

From Sporty’s Student Pilot News

By Bret Koebbe

As your flight training progresses and you start flying further away from your local practice area to new airports, you’ll learn all about VFR flight plans and their role in the aviation system. This free service is designed to let someone know that you’ll be out flying for the day, your planned route of flight, and when and where you expect to land. Then in the unlikely event you have to perform an off-airport landing and are out of range of communications, rescue workers will know where to come looking for you.

In the days before computers and tablets, these were typically filed with a Flight Service Station (FSS) over the phone, and then activated in the air by calling FSS again over a dedicated radio frequency. Mobile technology has changed this though, and most pilots take advantage of the VFR flight plan functions in mobile apps like ForeFlight and Garmin Pilot, or directly on the Flight Service website (learn more about how to file a VFR Flight Plan from a variety of mobile apps here).

VIDEO TIP: HOW TO CALCULATE TAKEOFF AND LANDING DISTANCES

You’ll need to modify your takeoff and landing procedures when operating from shorter runways to obtain the maximum performance from the airplane. These techniques will allow you to shorten the ground roll and also provide additional clearance over obstacles if they are present near the runway.
