    Have any of you flown the glass yet? I've seen and read a lot about the Avidyne, G1000, and Chelton systems. With just this information, I've been thinking that I'd prefer the G1000 (at least when they get the integrated AP operational).

    I'm interested in your opinions, especially those of you with experience with glass.

    Sadly, no personal experience with glass. The Chief CFI at a local school, however, REALLY loves the Garmen G1000 glass in the new C182s. He's flown a lot of the more advanced stuff in anticipation of FITS and mentioned that he's most impressed with the G1000.
