The Baron, the Skyhawk, and the Mooney also include variants that feature the Garmin G1000 avionics panels. As a career pilot I have to say I’m jealous of all these real life weekend warriors that get to go out and fly with these exotic panels (like the G1000) and exotic aircraft (like the Cirrus) with real-time weather radar downlinks and TCAS. While our Citation Ultra and B200s are no slouches, I’ve never once flown one of these small general aviation aircraft with all the bells and whistles. At least FSX will give me a small clue of how it would be. I only scratched the surface of what the G1000 can do, and while it isn’t a perfect 100% working replica of the real thing, it is quite capable and a big step up from the older steam gauges that are more typical for these types of aircraft. The Learning Center has a large section specifically devoted to the G1000 avionics (obviously I have some reading to do). The following screen shots I took to illustrate the multitude of cockpit views that you can arrange to tailor the view to your tastes. If you are interested in just having some pop-up 2D displays on the screen for IFR practice it is easy to do. Another nice feature is the ability to move your eye viewpoint in the VC via key commands (not something new for Active Camera people) and the availability in some aircraft of “landing” and “IFR” views in the 2D choices to either maximize the view outside while retaining some instruments or maximizing the view of nearly the entire panel while flying heads down.
