No “visual approach” option...

Post by AviatorK »

Good morning all. I did all my multi-engine training in a DA42 with G1000 and it had visual approaches (in addition to RNAV and GPS etc). I've been in a DA62 for the last few days, and it doesn't have the option to “load” a visual approach. It's odd, because this DA62 is loaded, I don't think any expensive was spared. Both the cirrus and the 172 (multiple) that have the NXI have a visual approach option.

What's going on? What don't I know?

Visual approaches are part of the "Phase III" release of the Garmin G1000 NXi software for Diamond Aircraft. Per this update (scroll to the third item), it's available for DA42-VI and DA50 RG models, and not yet for the DA40, DA40NG, or DA62.

Can you confirm details about the DA42 you flew for your multi-engine training? What was the tail number?
