Following the debut of its glass panel iGATE featuring the Sagem Avionics Integrated Cockpit Display System (ICDS 2000) at AirVenture in Oshkosh, USA, these are the newest additions to ELITE’s aviation training device (ATD) fleet. They are part of ELITE’s continuing commitment to provide training systems representing the cockpits of today’s technically advanced aircraft. Several G1000-equipped versions are available, including a desktop iGATE and a Diamond DA40/42 developed in co-operation with Diamond Aircraft Industries. The G1000-equipped devices are part of ELITE's ongoing development of glass panel training devices.

The ELITE Garmin G1000 Part Task Trainer (PTT) features a single or dual pilot control column with original Garmin G1000 glass cockpit. A optional generic cockpit shell with separate detached instructor station is available to accommodate the PTT.

The Garmin G1000 PTT meets FAA AATD specifications and CASA regulations as a Level B FSD2 training device, whilst ELITE external visual systems are available as optional add-ons.

The ELITE Evolution Garmin G1000 PTT is an ideal tool for any FTO using Garmin 1000 glass cockpit instrumentation in the actual aircraft. ELITE's new PTT offers high value at low cost, whether used to familiarise students with a new glass cockpit and at the same time freeing up valuable time in the actual aircraft, or for training for transition to airliner glass cockpits.
