Summary
186 Max talks with Flying Mag Sr. Editor Rob Mark about recent strange events and stupid criminals. In one event, a Southwest pilot went on a profanity-laced rant on the tower frequency at San Jose.

If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Summary
183 Max talks about the Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpits and the many aircraft they’re in from the F-5 fighter jet to the Cirrus Vision Jet. He also discusses differences from the G1000 and Perspective, and why the G3000 and G5000 are easier to use. He also talks about his new G3000 and G5000 book. Later, he interviews Nick Sinopoli, inventor of the ICARUS Devices Smart Hood for IFR training.

Garmin G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit
What do some fighter jets, light business jets, turboprops and even Joby Aviation’s eVTOL all have in common? They all use, or plan to use, the Garmin G3000 or G5000 glass cockpit! The Garmin G3000 and G5000 are used in twenty-three aircraft models, and manufacturers have announced plans to use them in a half dozen other models. Now there’s a new source of information for pilots flying these aircraft: Max Trescott’s G3000 and G5000 Glass Cockpit Handbook!

Max Trescott, the 2008 National Flight Instructor of the Year, uses a narrative approach to explaining the G3000 and G5000 from a pilot’s perspective in ways that both beginners and experts can understand. He starts by describing the hardware, including the displays and touchscreen controllers, and then describes how to use each function, including the radios, programming flight plans and instrument approaches, and using the autopilot and electronic checklists. He also teaches the data link weather products available through SiriusXM, ADS-B FIS-B weather, and Garmin Connext Weather. Throughout the book, you’ll find practical tips, gleaned from the industry’s most experienced glass cockpit instructors, on how to use different features. Pilots may want to keep a copy of the book in the cockpit and use the book’s detailed Index, so they can quickly look up how to use a feature. The book is 312 pages and includes 367 color images.

Some of the G3000/G5000-equipped aircraft covered in the book include:
• Cessna Citation M2, CJ3+, Sovereign+, Latitude, Longitude, Denali, and 10+
• Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet
• Daher TBM 930 and TBM 940
• Embraer Phenom EV100 and 300E
• Honda HA-420 HondaJet
• Learjet 70, 75, and 75 Liberty
• Piper M600 and M600 SLS
• retrofitted Cessna Citation Excel and XLS
• retrofitted Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP
• retrofitted TacAir F-5 fighter jets
