tor Instrument on the right. In addition to a shiny and impressive new red, white and blue paintjob and athree bladed propeller, the Cessna G-1000 has a “glass cockpit”. The glass cockpit has two video screenslabeled the Primary Flight Display, and the Multi-function Display, which together provide significantlymore relevant and useful information to the pilots than did the older “steam gage” Cessna 182’s and172’s, which comprise the majority of the Civil Air Patrol fleet of aircraft. However, the increased com-plexity of the new G-1000 aircraft, along with a flight director and all-axis autopilot, require special in-struction and an aircraft specific Form 5 Annual Examination before CAP pilots are permitted to fly theaircraft.If all goes according to plan, MEG will have 2 fully qualified instructors, as soon as Captain Teck com-pletes his training and Form 5 Examination. Thereafter, the plan is to provide instruction and transitiontraining to the remaining mission pilots and trainees in the Group.
