Advanced Avionics

Once you fly the Garmin G1000 NXi cockpit and its optionally integrated Garmin GFC700 digital autopilot on the DA40 NG, you will not want to fly anything else. The Garmin G1000 NXi glass cockpit is the definite industry standard and equivalent to the avionics used in modern Airliner cockpits, a tremendous benefit for Flight Training Schools as it eases the transition of pilots from trainer aircraft cockpits to the modern airline environment.

The Garmin GFC700 digital autopilot is significantly more precise than analogy systems – a pilot’s dream. More integration, more functionality, more precision, better reliability – it all adds up to reduced pilot workload and better safety.
