I have a couple of questions, so here we go:
- Which in your opinion is a better avionics suite the Garmin 1000 or Avidyne? Any pros or cons?
- Could you install the Garmin 1000 in a Cirrus and would it be compatible?
- The Avidyne was available before the G 1000 came out so would, has or will Cirrus Design consider using the G1000 in their future production planes?
I’m a student pilot and I have read a lot about flying safely and I am very excited about the features the G1000 has and what it would do to help me be the most efficient, proficient and safest pilot I can be. Because I have not seen any flight schools that train with any Cirrus airplanes anywhere or close to where I live, the Cirrus is my top favorite GA aircraft and I hope to train in and own one someday, then would come the Cessna 172 because of its heritage and reliability and because thats what most people learned to fly in and I will likely do the same. I like the DA 40 Diamond Star too, the new Skylanes come with G1000 installed and rumor has it they may be available in the the Skyhawk so I would consider buying one of these someday. I would feel really safe and confident knowing that I had the G1000 in the plane I would fly. CAPS & GARMIN 1000 in the same plane! My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Thanks in advance for your responses.
