Kodiak G 1000 autopilot question

Recommended Posts

Looked all over and can't find it, anyone know what the SPD button on the autopilot panel in the Kodiak does. It is located right under the Flight Level Change button?

Like you, it has been a while since I have flown the Kodiak but I don't think that it has an active function for that aircraft.

If I remember correctly it should change units for KTS to MACH

Yes, I just found that out. Not much use for that in the Kodiak, unless I am flying straight down...😉

On a slightly different topic, is it possible to turn off the FD on the G1000? I found it wasn't possible.. I need to turn it off during manual landings so that it doesn't block my view of the attitude indicator when I flare..

Can't look out the window when you flare?

Perhaps it’s just me, but it’s not that easy to judge the attitude in the sim vs real flying. As a student pilot I early learned the mantra “eyes to the end of the runway” before touchdown. Up in the sim though, I always fear a nose landing unless I keep an eye on the HSI.

And I’m sure the Kodiak has an FD button.

When the runway starts to flatten out, you are at flare height. The Kodiak has a FD button but the auto pilot has to be off too.

I don't think anyone understood what I was saying.. lemme try again.. 

I always do manual landings and switch between outside view and scanning instruments.. and I can judge the flare by looking out.. but the attitude indicator tells me how many degrees my flare was at touchdown.. I check this during replays to improve my future landings along with touchdown rate, speed etc.. having FD ON will insert that purple crosshairs on top of the black crosshairs.. I only want to see the actual aircraft's attitude (black crosshairs or inverted V, more like ^) , not the FD's purple inverted V  which is basically what the AP wants the aircraft to do.. 

so anyway, turning the AP off and FD off does not remove the purple ^ in the G1000.. but i'm able to turn it off in other planes like CRJ for instance which helps me judge my flare angle.. because now i'm only looking at the actual attitude and not having the purple ^ obscure my black ^..

I believe it is a bug..

Thank you. Just wanted to confirm that. Let me try again in a few flights after SU10 and report back. I believe we get an updated G1000 after SU10.

The G1000 update has been available for months, the G1000 Nxi....
