I just flew in a Brand new Cessna 172 fully equipped with the G1000 avionics package and I have to say it is pretty sweet. Much different than the old puddle jumpers I am used to.

Yes, I see that Boeing is finally putting something that looks comparible, into their latest jetliner! :)

That thing has nicer computers than the CRJ (and a lot of other jets that I haven't flown). If you can master the G1000, the transition to a "glass" paneled jet will be no sweat.

One aspect of the g1000 that is inexplicable, and potentially really bad, is that on the main display, the glideslope and localizer needle do not seem to be on the same part of the display.

The top part of the display with the artificial horizon has the glideslope, and the bottom section of the display with the "HSI" has the localizer on it. Why they didnt put both on the same display, like every other efis, and like every hsi out there, well I do not know

I've flown a glass 172.

It's pretty nice until you take off, and then you realize you're still flying a f'ing 172. :D

Justify what you are saying...what more could they have done...blown up the dozers on the midnight raid?

They got more email from their members about meigs than the temp shutdown of flying after 9 11...

Honestly, back it up.

They could have actually kept the airport in existance if they didn't feel it was a waste of time. They didn't try hard enough, they didn't care. They got Bulldozed by Mayor Daley, who was comitting an illegal act.

If they can't protect Meigs Field, they cannot protect anything.

You turd, AOPA invested a lot more resources than anyone else to fight that battle, and it still isn't over. They continue to push for civil penalties. If you want to be pissed at someone, be pissed at the courts for not issuing the Injunction. Or maybe at Daley, since he's the one who did it.

And who cares about the G1000? The rest of that airplane is still 60 year old technology.

G1000 is super bada$$. Makes flying a great video game. You have to look outside to remember you're flying an airplane.
