B1000 Avionic Desktop Trainer

View on all Panels of the Avionic Desktop Trainer
The G1000® All-Glass Avionics Suite from Garmin® is not only very popular in business aviation, but also increasingly in private aviation. The reason for this is undoubtedly the wide range of functions, which not only bring undreamt-of comfort but also safety into the cockpit. However, this comes at the price of a complex system that requires in-depth training.

The brainchild B1000 Avionic Desktop Trainer (ADT) provides the optimal environment to learn how to use the Garmin® G1000® effectively and above all stress-free. During development, special attention was paid to making sure that the B1000 ADT not only looks and feels like the original, but also behaves like it. The B1000 ADT supports all training scenarios, be it on the ground, in the air, visual flight (VFR) or instrument flight (IFR) and is therefore an indispensable teaching aid for flight schools and air sports clubs to train student pilots, refresh pilot knowledge or retrain experienced pilots.

Avionic Desktop Trainer in classroom
Perfect for the classroom
The B1000 ADT was developed not only for training scenarios on the ground, but especially for those in the air. The integrated aircraft simulation controls the aircraft so that the student can concentrate fully on the exercises. Flight schools can use the B1000 ADT for almost all exercises, from general operation, approach and take-off, to complex navigation exercises. This is not only easy on the student’s wallet, but also on the flight schools’, as hours in the aircraft are reduced to the minimum and maintenance intervals are not unnecessarily shortened.

How does the B1000 Avionic Desktop Trainer (ADT) differ from the official Garmin® G1000® simulation software?

The Garmin® G1000® Simulation Software is designed for use on a standard Windows PC. It only supports a limited selection of aircraft configurations. The software can only be operated by mouse and keyboard. There is no audio panel available. The simulation itself is configured using the PFD/MFD control panel (take-off conditions, etc.).
In order to run the software, a separate PC with sufficient power is required.

The B1000 ADT is a compact device and comes with everything you need right out of the box. No installation required. Just plug in the power and off you go. The device is operated exclusively via the realistic control panel. The simulation is configured via the integrated touch screen.

There are 5 pre-configured aircraft available for selection. If the desired configuration is not included, individual profiles can be easily created. It is possible to select an aircraft with a piston engine, turboprop or jet engine; as well as configuring the number of engines. The aircraft specific displays, such as speedometer and engine monitoring, can be configured to the last detail. In principle, any aircraft type is supported.

Will the Garmin® G1000® disappear from aeroplanes in the future?

No, on the contrary. The Garmin® G1000® has been installed in aeroplanes since 2007. Cessna has been supplying the world’s most used aircraft for decades and has been equipping them with the Garmin® G1000® since 2007. Aircraft in general aviation are used for well over 30 years, depending on the type. Hardly any new aircraft are equipped exclusively with analogue instruments. This means that the old “watch shop” aircraft are increasingly disappearing from the market. As a result, successively more and more aircraft with glass cockpits and thus also the Garmin® G1000® will conquer the market.

Note: Since 2017, Cessna is installing the next generation of the Garmin® G1000®, the G1000® NXi. This is primarily characterized by improved performance and a connection to mobile devices. Therefore, the B1000 Avionic Desktop Trainer is also ideally suited for training with these devices.

Is the B1000 Avionic Desktop Trainer (ADT) also suitable for training with the Garmin® G1000® NXi?

Yes, and without restrictions. The Garmin® G1000® NXi differs from its predecessor essentially only in terms of improved performance and connectivity to mobile devices. Therefore, the B1000 ADT is perfectly suited for training with the Garmin® G1000® NXi.
