(Re)Introduction to the Garmin GNS 430/530 Part V Approach Procedures

Though they are now somewhat dated, the Garmin GNS530 and 430 remain ubiquitous in the GA fleet. These powerful navigation devices remain somewhat mysterious to many aviators, so Cap'n Mike will demystify the basics of this very capable equipment. Whether you've had one for years, found a used one on eBay last week, or recently bought an airplane that came with one of these installed, you're sure to understand this gear better after this webinar.

This program will focus on techniques for conducting Instrument Approach Procedures, and subjects will include: How to select and verify an approach; if, when, and how, to Activate the approach, or join onto an approach; Normal and abnormal indications of approach progress; Executing a Missed Approach; Using the navigator on terrestrial approach procedures; and more.

Captain Mike Jesch flies a Boeing 787 on long-haul routes at work - with perhaps the most modern aviation navigation system available today. With deep roots in the GA world, he is a two-time Master CFI, the 2021 Western Pacific Region FAASTeam Rep Of The Year, and has been flying for over 40 years. He earned his instrument rating in a Cessna 150 with vacuum tube radios, but he's flown behind a GNS530W in his personal Cessna 182 for a decade now and will bring his engaging and relaxed presentation style home to you.

Join host Captain Brian Schiff and presenter Captain Mike Jesch for this re-introduction to the wonders of modern GPS navigators. Using the Garmin simulator as well as photos and videos from his own airplane, we will illustrate, demonstrate, and educate on the basics.
