Avionics proficiency

We now have a variety of avionics in the group ranging from G430, G500, G650, G1000, G1000 NXi, and of course the GX55s. Please don’t underestimate the learning curve for equipment you haven’t flown before or are otherwise not proficient in. When you first fly a new unit, practice with a simulator or seek online resources, and you can keep your first flight simple. Your first flight shouldn’t be IFR in actual IMC when using a GPS unit you haven’t used before.
