I've started working on an SR22 checkout in a G3 and am looking for resources for learning the Perspective system. I'm new to glass in general, and when I learned the GNS430 last year, I was able to download an ancient simulator from Garmin that was very helpful in mastery the switch-ology and general flow of the box.
I know there's an official G1000 sim, but was wondering if there's anything available that's more specific to the Cirrus implementation of it that's available ($ is OK) to a non-owner?
This link will take you to the COPA University YouTube channel where you’ll find several videos about the Perspective trainer. (At least I hope the link will take you there)
I bought my SR22T in 2015. I leased it back to Cirrus for three months. When I signed the contract for the AC (three months before the AC was built), I bought a FlythisSim....So, I had the sim for six months prior to getting my AC..... A great way to come up to speed on the avionic's. Also, get a account on the Cirrus portal from Cirrus AC.... the modules there account for virtually everything you will need to learn short of actually flying with a CCIP.
I still use the Sim today
Of course..... you may not want to go this way if you don't intend to by a cirrus
You can by the Perspecrive training software from Garmin for $29
There is an official Cirrus Transition Training syllabus which I highly recommend. If you are doing your checkout with a Cirrus Standardized INstructor (CSIP) or a Cirrus training Center (CTC), which I think of as a necessity, they should follow that syllabus and make it available to you. It also contains traning modules that can be found at http://learning.cirrusaircraft.com. They are very good. All manuals are also there.
Transition Training from a CTC (Cirrus Training Center) and CSIP is the best training you can get and will have access to http://learning.cirrusaircraft.com. This learning portal is awesome!!!
Is there a perspective simulator on the portal??
The portal has very comprehensive video, diagrams, and explanation of electrical systems, failure modes, procedures, etc. The portal is very well done to help you learn the aircraft systems, however, it is not a Flight Simulator.
I'm working on my primary at a cirrus school. How do I get access to this site? Is that something the school needs to do, or can I register directly. Thx in adv.
BUy the Garmin sim. Best $25
If you’re talking about accessing the Learning Portal (learning.cirrusaircraft.com) you CAN create your own login and access both the free and for cost sessions. However, if you have your Cirrus Training Center set up your account and purchase your courses, they get some credits with Cirrus (called Cirrus bucks). It’s no additional charge to you to have your training center setup and procure the courses but it’s good for them.
Ask your training center about it. If they don’t know anything about it, than login and create your own account.
Fabio, the only thing I can find are links to the DVD versions of perpective. Is that what you mean? Thx
