Disapointing
I expected more from the course. Especially for the price. I have purchased and completed seven Sporty's courses including the Private Pilot, Instrument Rating, and Multi-engine courses. I found those courses to be informative and a contributing factor to my successful preparation for those ratings and certificates. Until my purchase of this course I considered Sporty's to be my primary resource for online training courses. This course, however, was abbreviated and disappointing. It is nothing more than an attempt to cash in on the success of previous courses. Don't waste your money. I found more complete and informative training videos directly from Garmin and other reliable sources free on YouTube.

From a VFR Pilot
This course and the sim is everything you need (and no more) to get checked out in a G1000 aircraft. I couldn't get the sim to work on Windows 10, but I had a Windows 7 laptop and it works fine.

Unlike some DVD courses that require installation, and subsequent re-activations, it is always there waiting. I will never purchase a DVD based course again. Sporty's online training is the only thing I trust to be available when I need a quick refresher.

If you need more than this course, read the G1000 manual. If this course were to incorporate everything in that manual it would take weeks to complete, vs a few hours of familiarization.

This product is not intended to replace the G1000 manual. It is a nice streamlined way to start out, and undoubtedly pays for itself in reduced ground training. Can't ask for more than that.

Super basic
This set of videos is so basic that it doesn’t even scratch the surface of the G1000.

The on line course information was well presented and effectively covered the required information. Looking back I would have preferred purchasing the DVD disk library at the same cost. Yesterday I went on line to review several chapters and had been shut out of the system. The reason ,I had viewed the material the maximum number of times.

Great Customer Service
This is a great product and I would recommend using it prior to doing transition training. The online content is extremely easy to use. The content could go a little more in depth but I gave this 5 stars because of Sporty's great customer service. I tried downloading the free Garmin G1000 sim but my company's fire wall blocked it. After explaining to customer service the issue the went ahead and sent a physical copy via mail with out question. Thank you sporty's for backing up your product. Customer service is very important part of what you do. Your team did an excellent job!

A good course.
Just what you would expect from Sporty's. Informative and well paced, logically structured, easy to understand. Well worth the money before you sit down with an instructor and airplane.

Pros: Good quality Richard Collins is, as always, very good Cons: Video just touches the surface of the g1000 system without going in depth on what you need to know to effectively use all of its fantastic options. The included g1000 trainer is a computer resource hog. It also doesn't let you situate the simulator to your home airport, but rather defaults to Sportys airport. That's great if you live in that area, but not very good if you want to practice building flight plans to airports that you normally would fly to. Richard Collins is great, but don't think that if you buy this course, you will be able to go hop into a 172SP and take it x country. Remember, you get what you pay for. If you can spare the extra $150.00, go with the King Schools training course. It is much much more in depth

Pros: Good introduction to all of the main features of the G1000. The included Garmin G1000 simulator is a bonus which would cost roughly $25 if you were to buy it separately from Garmin. Together I think this product has a lot of value for the price. Cons: You need an active internet connection to view the videos. It would be nice if it was possible to download the videos for viewing when off line. One of the earlier reviewers commented that the G1000 simulator was setup to only start at Sporty's home airport. The current version of the software allows for you to set the starting point though it is not obvious how to set this. If you hit the menu key twice with the simulator powered up the simulator settings come up and you can enter the GPS coordinates of the starting point. I will fly with the real thing in a couple of weeks but with this tutorial, playing time on the simulator, plus my past experience with the GNS430 gives me the feeling I will pick it up in the real plane very quickly.

Pros: Well laid out modules and easy to understand. Cons: None. Much less expensive than some of the competitor's G1000 course. While this course by no means is comprehensive, but this is a very good starter course for anyone who wishes to fly a G1000 equipped plane.
