GTN750 how to plan approach procedures?

Recommended Posts

I am a bit confused how to input a flightplan including the approach.

Say I want to go from KSEA to KMWH. When I put in GTN750 as flightplan lets say KSEA TAGOR EAT, when I want to load an approach I select KMWH, and then select an approach. But that leaves the airport KMWH also in the plan. Should I then simply delete KMWH from the flightplan?

Hi,

You might want to start reading the Garmin Pilot's Guide which gets installed alongside the trainer on your hard drive.

Default location is: "C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\Launcher\Manuals"

Otherwise start the Garmin Trainer launcher and see the manuals there.

It is all explained in detailed in the Garmin manuals (obviously) and AFAIK there was a change regarding the airport staying/removed in the flight plan before/after their 6.50 software release.

Yes, if you are not flying a pattern to overfly the airport, which is usually then a VFR approach with VFR conditions  after cancelling IFR.

Since you want to land at KMWH.. you just leave it in the flightplan... that is what I do.

1. Enter flightplan:  KSEA TAGOR EAT KMWH

2. Select approach and at some point, activate the approach.

3. that is it..
