What no back up Nav Aids?

A G1000 doesn’t have a backup CDI either so not worse than any factory new airplane.

Also the use of an absorbent pad you see in Hospitals amd medical offices is a good idea to place on the seat.

I was wondering what that was on the pilot seat of your C210, now I understand!

Why don’t people simply turn on the pitot heat every time? Especially if your only AI depends on it

Yes it does… A G1000 installation has two displays connected to different avionics units. Either of them can display the CDI.

One relevant thread is possibly here. It is a really nasty weakness in this product which loses a lot of functionality as soon as airdata (pitot etc) is lost.

There are many scenarios where you can lose both G1000 screens. Hence the backup AI + altimeter. The CDI does not have a backup.

The G1000 has similar integrity tests which would make it remove indicators, although not 100% the same as Aspen.

The pitot is a rather critical single point of failure and there are many reasons why you could lose your pitot. In IMC, this could ruin your day. Larger airplanes (e.g. TBM) have 2 independent pitot static systems.

I really don’t see any scenarios where you lose both G1000 screens without also losing the whole electrical system. In that case a separate CDI won’t help.

Do you have an example?

I think the answers are in the thread I linked to, or a similar one. The G1000 can lose it too but it uses GPS data for the background gyro erection / integrity checks, whereas the EFD1000 uses airdata which is arguably a lot more vulnerable.

Is the NAV/COM display not usable at least for localiser backup?

I think they had an Aspen not a 1000 in the 210.

Here’s their flight from Nuuk to Kulusuk, and then on to Rejkjavik:


In “live” terms, they still seem to be somewhere in the east of Austria.
