2005

AOPA is now offering online interactive courses on the Offers Garmin 430 GPS and Garmin 530 GPS GPSMap systems.

This self-paced, 15-minute online course is the first in a series of AOPA Air Safety Foundation minicourses on various panel-mount GPS units. Unlike traditional training courses, it focuses on the few functions regularly used by a typical pilot in VFR flight. It includes a free PDF quick-reference card to carry with you in the cockpit—perfect for the VFR renter pilot.

The course will teach

  • the basic VFR functions of the Garmin 430/530
  • Comm and VHF Nav radio tuning
  • GPS waypoint selection
  • nearest airport and basic moving map functions
