Getting the most efficient use from your avionics in the IFR system can often be challenging, but is essential for safe flight. This program on flying WAAS approaches with the Garmin 430W/530W gives pilots the knowledge needed to fly these new instrument approaches with confidence.

In this program, we’ll examine the redesigned RNAV (GPS) approach charts. You’ll learn the specifics of LNAV/VNAV and LPV approaches and see how they provide ILS-like guidance when using the Garmin 430W, one of the most popular panel-mount units. You’ll ride along on three flights to see, step-by-step, how to set-up and fly three different GPS approaches including an LPV approach.

Learn how the unit provides turn-by-turn guidance for flying procedure turns and holding patterns and how the 430W uses WAAS information to provide an electronic glidepath and more accurate navigation guidance.

Also included is a review quiz based on content from the videos. After finishing the questions you’ll receive instant feedback on your score and be able to review missed questions. There’s even a way to quickly review the video segment from which the question was taken.

WAAS Approaches includes chapters from the Instrument Flying Handbook and Instrument Procedures Handbook on instrument approaches for additional study – complete with a table of contents for quick access to each page. The Garmin 430W Pilot’s Guide is also included for quick reference.
