G750 Simulator (Now Compatible with X-Plane!)
There are lots of ways to learn how to use the GTN 750. Here’s the best way to master it.
Introducing the The Flight1 Aviation Technologies G750 Simulator: a stand-alone GTN 750 simulation that interfaces with Lockheed Martin® Prepar3D™ Microsoft® Flight Simulator X, and X-Plane.
The G750 Simulator software isn't intended to be incorporated directly into a 2D instrument panel or virtual cockpit like typical flight simulation “gauges.” It runs outside of the flight simulation software in its own window, and can be run on the same computer as the flight simulation (using one or more monitors), or on a separate machine connected to the flight simulation via a network (for improved performance). When displayed on a small touchscreen monitor, the G750 Simulator becomes a nearly one-to-one simulation of the real GTN 750 that builds muscle memory and minimizes "negative transfer" of training.
There's no doubt about it: the touchscreen Garmin GTN 750 is one of the most intuitive integrated avionics solutions available today. Icon-identified onscreen touchkeys make it easy to find what you’re looking for, and a shallow menu structure greatly simplifies the operation—so that you’re rarely more than two taps away from all the primary pages and functions.
Because operating the GTN 750 is so intuitive, it’s easy to learn how to use. Books, videos, courses, and stand-alone part-task trainers can help you to quickly become familiar with how it operates. But ... they don't allow you to practice using it in the context of actually flying.
That’s where the Flight1 Aviation Technologies G750 Simulator comes in. It works together with Prepar3D, Flight Simulator X, and X-Plane to help pilots learn to use the GTN 750 ... and master it.
Master Using the GTN 750 by Practicing Every Scenario Imaginable, Whenever You Want
By using the G750 Simulator, while flying in the simulated environment generated by Prepar3D, Flight Simulator X, or X-Plane, you'll be able to:
- Become comfortable operating the GTN 750’s interface (using a mouse or a touchscreen monitor) while you’re flying, navigating, and communicating within the simulated world
- Develop a good scan for flying Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) and maintain it—even if you’re grounded for weeks or months at a time.
- Master using the GTN 750 during VFR and IFR flights between any airports, anywhere in the world, in any season, in any weather conditions, at any time of day or night.
- Learn to use GTN 750 features you might never have the opportunity to explore during a real flight in a real airplane.
- Maintain proficiency flying the departures, arrivals, and approaches you fly most frequently.
- Build proficiency flying unfamiliar routes and procedures by “pre-flying” them using the simulator.
- Practice using the GTN 750 to execute missed approaches and route modifications while you’re safely on the ground ... instead of bouncing around in hard IMC.
- Become proficient using one of the GTN 750’s most powerful features: flying fully coupled WAAS/LPV approaches in both vertical and lateral modes.
- Practice flying holding patterns and DME arcs.
- Learn how to use Vertical Navigation (VNAV) to take the guesswork out of descending to specific altitudes at waypoints and airports.
- Master using OBS mode and the OBS button to suspend and resume waypoint sequencing during missed approaches, departure procedures, and holds.
- Train using scenarios that you could otherwise only complete in a real airplane (or via “chair flying” using your imagination).
What You’ll Have at Your Fingertips, and How it’s Different from Other Solutions
The G750 Simulator includes a realistic, nearly one-to-one simulation of the actual GTN 750 software.
The Flight1 Tech G750 Simulator software will interface with the default aircraft in Prepar3D, FSX, and X-Plane, or with any add-on aircraft that you’ve installed. And because the software is a stand-alone application that merely interfaces with Prepar3D, FSX, and X-Plane it can be run on a separate PC connected to the flight simulation over a network. When configured this way, the GTN 750 simulation won't slow down the flight simulation's performance.
The G750 Simulator was designed to be flexible. You can use it in all sorts of teaching and learning environments: in an aviation university classroom or lab, in a flight school or airline simulation center, or at home.
The included G750 Simulator software is modeled after the Garmin GTN 750 and includes more than 95% of the features of the real GTN 750, including:
- A high-resolution moving map display with full data integration
- A simulated touch and drag interface that allows you to interact with the system, graphically edit flight plans, and much more using the mouse cursor (or a touchscreen monitor)
- SafeTaxi® detailed airport information on the moving map (US and Europe Only)
- FliteCharts® electronic AeroNav terminal procedures charts (US Coverage Only / GTN 750 Only)
- High resolution terrain maps (worldwide) and TAWS-B audible alerts (North and Central America only)
- ADS-B and TAWS systems w/alerts
- Full WAAS approach support
- Graphical flight planning, including airway navigation
- A worldwide database of roads, rivers, cities, oceans, lakes, etc.
- A worldwide obstacle database and obstacle alerts
- Full COM/NAV receiver integration
- Pixel by pixel accuracy to the real world avionics
The G750 Simulator interface allows you to connect the G750 Simulator to the flight simulation, and select a number of custom application settings. You can:
- Maintain the aspect ratio when resizing the window, and save the window size and position between sessions.
- Display or hide the G750 Simulator window frame.
- Select different “Ownship” symbols.
- Select which Com and Nav radios the G750 Simulator will control.
- Select which method (Nav or Heading) the G750 Simulator uses to control the aircraft’s autopilot.
- Select which core the G750 Simulator will run on when using a multi-core PC.
- Enable or disable “Link Course” and “Auto-Course” functions that simulate GNS 750 messaging and automatic course features.
- Select whether the G750 Simulator fuel flow and fuel quantity values are read from the flight simulation, or entered manually.
- Switch between following GPS flight plans created in the G750 Simulator, or in the flight simulation GPS.
- Enable or disable sounds like audible warnings and alerts, and clicks when pressing buttons and turning knobs.
- Enable or disable an “Active Mouse” and “Invert Mouse” functions that make the G750 simulator easier to use with a mouse.
The software simulates the features and functionality of the real GTN 750 so accurately that we didn’t want to re-write the real manual. Thus, we encourage you to use Garmin’s GTN 725-750 Pilot's Guide as a reference for learning to operate your G750 Simulator.
Before you purchase a GNS 750 simulation, do your homework. Make a list of the features and scenarios you hope to simulate, and then compare that list against the features offered in a given solution. If something is unclear, ask for clarification.
To our knowledge, the Flight1 Tech G750 Simulator is the only GTN 750 simulation for Prepar3D, FSX and X-Plane that includes a nearly one-to-one simulation of the real GTN 750 software and runs entirely outside of Prepar3D, FSX, and X-Plane (for the best performance possible).
We encourage you to shop around. You won’t find a better training tool.
Move from Familiarization to Mastery
If the airplane you or your students fly has a GTN 750 and an autopilot, the FAA considers it a “Technologically Advanced Aircraft” (TAA). According to an AOPA Air Safety Foundation report on TAA safety and training, the best way to learn to fly a TAA is to start on the ground.
Begin by reading the GTN 725-750 Pilot’s Guide and other books. Watch videos and take courses. Learn your way around the interface using a part-task trainer. Then—before you go flying—use a flight simulator or flight training device to master using the GTN 750 in the context of realistic flight scenarios.
Many pilots skip simulation when they’re learning to use the GTN 750 (and continue to skip it as part of maintaining proficiency) because they think they can’t afford to rent or purchase a flight simulator with a realistic GTN 750 in the panel.
Now there’s no excuse. Whether you’re a pilot, a flight instructor, or a flight school owner, the combination of Prepar3D, FSX, or X-Plane with the Flight1 Tech G750 Simulator will change the way you train. You’ll be able to practice any navigation scenario imaginable—without burning fuel.
Your investment will quickly pay off, as you or your students move beyond familiarization to mastery. The sort of mastery that increases confidence, reduces overwhelm, and makes flying safer.
