    TopSkills - Navigating With G1000 for MSFS

    Navigate Precisely Anywhere in Your Simulator

    Glass instrument panels are mainstays of modern aviation. The Garmin G1000 is used by general and commercial aviation alike because it makes navigation information so easy to read and use. Pilots always have a clear and concise picture of where they are and where they are going.

    In Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, the Garmin G1000 is available in these aircraft:

    • Beechcraft Baron G58
    • Beechcraft Bonanza
    • Beechcraft King Air 350
    • Cessna 172 Skyhawk
    • Cessna 208B Grand Caravan
    • Daher TBM 930
    • Diamond DA40 and DA42
    • Extra 330 LT (variation)
    • Flight Design CTSL (variation)
    • JMB VL-3 (variation)

    Make your simulations as realistic as possible by expertly using the G1000 for navigating your cross-country flights.
