Flight 1 Technologies now support the RealSimGear G1000 suite (PFD, MFD, and Audio Panel), and have embedded the RealSimGear Add-on directly into their G1000 Student Pro software. If you only plan on using Flight 1 software with the RealSimGear G1000, you only need to purchase, download, install and configure the Flight 1 G1000 Student Pro software as outlined below.
** Please note: RealSimGear does not sell nor support the Flight 1 G1000 Student Pro, but is providing these basic setup instructions as it pertains to the use of RealSimGear hardware. Any questions relating to installation, configuration, or support, should be directed to Flight 1.
