New Air Facts DVD: Flying Glass Cockpits
Avidyne FlightMax Entegra
Cirrus Perspective by Garmin
You'll ride along with Richard Collins as he explores three popular glass cockpit systems in both Cessna and Cirrus aircraft.
First, Collins highlights the Garmin G1000 found in the Cessna 182 and Cessna 400. You'll see first-hand, both on the ground and in the air, the integration of electronic flight instrumentation, GPS, autopilot, traffic, weather and terrain awareness.
You'll also see the G1000 in action during several instrument approaches.
Next, join Collins as he provides an overview of the Avidyne FlightMax Entegra found in the Cirrus SR 22.
He is joined by David Zitt, a Cirrus-certified flight instructor and manager of flight training operations for Sporty's, who discusses what it takes to transition to glass cockpits and common mistakes he has seen along the way.
Finally, Flying Glass Cockpits looks at the Cirrus Perspective by Garmin, including its integration of a full digital autopilot, flight director, keypad and synthetic vision display.
A glass cockpit is an aircraft cockpit that features electronic (digital) instrument displays, typically large LCD screens, as opposed to the traditional style of analog dials and gauges. Where a traditional cockpit relies on numerous mechanical gauges to display information, a glass cockpit uses several displays driven by flight management systems, that can be adjusted to display flight information as needed. This simplifies aircraft operation and navigation and allows pilots to focus only on the most pertinent information. They are also popular with airline companies as they usually eliminate the need for a flight engineer. In recent years the technology has become widely available in small aircraft.
グラスコックピット（英語: Glass Cockpit）とは、乗り物の操縦、運転に必要となる各種情報をアナログ計器を用いず、ブラウン管ディスプレイ（CRT）や液晶ディスプレイ（LCD）に集約表示したコックピット（操縦席）である。もともとは航空機のコックピットについての表現であるが、鉄道車両の運転台や自動車の運転席についても同様の表現が用いられる。
