Victor’s Vectors: G1000 Databases, part II


FliteChart – This database is Garmin’s approach charts which
include the airport diagrams, approach plates, SIDs, and STARs.

AOPA – This database includes an airport directory providing
information such as FBO’s on field, phone phones, restaurants, transportation,
and more.

Obstacles – This database contains all man made structures
above 200 ft above ground level, and it includes buildings, towers, and

SafeTaxi – This database includes the airport diagram for
over 800 airports in the US
and displays them on the moving map on the MFD. 
It also includes shaded HotSpot areas on the airports that require extra
attention or caution.

Terrain – This database is a little obvious.  It’s the ground, so all of those mountains,
hills, and valleys.

I hope this information has helped to clear up any
confusion.  For additional information
refer to the Pilot’s Guide for your G1000 in the Appendix section under the
title SD Card Usage.
