The RFC is excited to announce that our C172 ‘GTM’ has been retrofitted with a new Garmin G5 PFD and HSI (Primary Flight Display and Horizontal Situation Indicator)!
All pilots wishing to fly GTM will require a checkout flight with an instructor to familiarize themselves with the operation and functions of the new instruments. We also encourage pilots, prior to a checkout, to read the Garmin G5 documentation to assist in understanding the limits and capabilities of the new flight displays.
The Garmin G5 documentation can be found by clicking here.
(It is recommended that anyone wishing to print this document for reading should print the document in colour due to the display’s heavy reliance on colour to interpret information)
Please note that this installation has resulted in modifications to the aircraft’s weight & balance data, and in changes to the checklist. Please see the documentation below to ensure you are using the most recent information.
