Approach type rating – GNSS

Make precise instrument approaches with the GPS

You are instrument rated and you want to conduct instrument approaches, you must follow a specific training for this.

It comprises a theoretical training, and a practical training (flight simulator and directly in the cockpit of a Garmin 1000 equipped airplane).

Under the limitations of any other regulatory specification, the ability to conduct a GNSS approach enables the holder of an IR type rating to conduct instrument approaches using the GPS.
