SkyView Training Class (VFR)

January 18, 2013 8:30am - 12:00pm

We all recognize that transition training is important before hopping into a new airplane or airplane type. Whether in the clouds or in clear skies, flying a new plane is not the right time to be learning how to operate aircraft avionics and systems. We at Dynon recognize this, and offer an ongoing series of hands-on training. These are half-day courses, sitting in front of live SkyView equipment, with in depth instruction on how to operate your avionics. 

These classes will be at the US Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, FL, in the Chateau Elan Hotel at the airport, January 17, 18 and 19.  The air-conditioned hotel conference room offers comfortable seating and a classroom-like environment with a full audio/visual presentation.  Classes are structured with limited seating to ensure no more than 2 students at each SkyView display.  We will hold two classes per day, a morning VFR focused course and an afternoon IFR focused course. The information covered in both classes is very similar, so please only sign up for one session. 

 Instructing these classes will be Kirk Kleinholz, CFII and Sales Manager for Dynon Avionics.

Class Description:
 This class will introduce pilots to most ground and in-flight operational features of the Dynon Avionics SkyView system.  In-depth discussion of installation and initial configuration of the system is not an objective of this class, though some of those concepts will be addressed where relevant.  

Specific to the SkyView system, pilots will learn how to:
  - Configure the display(s) for various phases of ground and flight operations.
  - Navigate using the integrated VFR GPS moving map and flight planner.
  - Configure and operate the autopilot for both VFR and IFR missions.
  - Access course guidance information from various navigation sources installed in the aircraft.
  - Locate and understand various calculated data presented by SkyView (ie:  winds aloft, TAS, density altitude, angle-of-attack, fuel computer).

An additional objective of this class is to educate pilots about the process of transitioning from analog instrumentation to glass panel systems in a small GA aircraft.  Topics covered will include:
  - Cognitive differences of analog and digital/electronic instrumentation
  - Need for training and experience in successful transition
  - Benefits and pitfalls of glass panel systems
  - Cockpit resource management

  - Attendees are responsible for their own transportation to and from the event.
