 An introduction to glass cockpits in Flight Simulator 
The Garmin G1000 glass cockpit is revolutionizing General Aviation, and now youcan see for yourself what all the excitement is about! The Deluxe version of FlightSimulator X includes three aircraft with an optional G1000 glass cockpit variation:
Cessna Skyhawk SP Model 172
Mooney M20M "Bravo"
Beechcraft Baron 58Pick your plane, step into the cockpit, and prepare to be amazed!
Welcome to the Revolution 
The G1000 takes many of the common instruments you're used to seeing on thepanel of a small aircraft and displays them on two big computer displays.Everything is displayed in an easy-to-read electronic format, along with some newfeatures too.More than anything else, the information presented on the G1000's displays—thePrimary Flight Display (PFD) and the Multi Function Display (MFD)—will increaseyour situational awareness. At all times, you'll have a much better picture of theaircraft's attitude, performance, and position.There's a lot to look at, a lot to play with, and a lot to learn. In fact, the G1000'sfeatures rival those found in the cockpits of many airliners! Once you get used toflying with a glass cockpit, it's hard to go back to "steam gauges."In a simulator, the best way to get up to speed is to dive right in and learn by doing. Luckily, the G1000 isfunction intuitively. So in this article we'll keep things at a high level. We'll provide an overview of the G10features and how to use them to do most of the basic tasks you're used to doing while flying any airplane uFlight Rules (VFR). While we'll touch on some of the more advanced IFR features, we encourage you to visi
and download the real-world G1000 manuals (free of charge) for a more detailed explareal unit's intricacies.

Others pregraphics of the 2-D panel. Some use the 2-D cockpit for instrument flying, and the Virtual cockpit for sightusing both with the G1000 and see which one you like best.In

CompassYou can drag and resize any of these panels, which is particularly useful if you havemultiple monitors. You can, for example, pop-up the MFD, drag itto your second monitor, and resize it so that you can see both the PFD andthe MFD at the same time.
Controls and Keys 
The PFD and the MFD both feature the same controls and keys, which havebeen designed to minimize your workload as you access the G1000'ssophisticated functionality.To manipulate the knobs and keys on the G1000, use the mouse just like you'd use your hand in a real cocdisplay each control's name by moving the pointer over it.
The G1000 includes two types of adjustment knobs: single knobs and dual knobs. Dual knobs have a largesmall knob on top of it.To rotate a knob, move the cursor across the knob. A hand with either a

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think this unit has bearing needles. Am I over looking how to turn these on and fly actual needles to and from a navaid? I would like to use this unit more but I'm not seeing what I need. anyone have any advice? I currently use / practice with a Jet.
