The G1000 Trainer simulates the behavior of the G1000 system interface and provides you with a safer environment to learn the basic operation of the system. The G1000 trainer operates on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista platforms only (Mac operating systems are not supported). See the minimum systems requirements below for more information. These requirements are essential for successful installation and operation. If your system does not meet these requirements, we will not be able to support your installation.

Improved interface with Intel integrated graphics controllers
Dual computer monitor support
Dual GDU display — able to display PFD and MFD simultaneously

Airway interface — allows users to view and insert airways into the flight plan

NOTE: Due to the graphic memory intensive nature of the G1000 simulator, it must be the only application running on your PC. In some cases, even though your computer meets the minimum PC requirements, the simulator may not function properly. This is due to the unique configuration of each computer and the extra processes and procedures that are utilized by that computer.
