PFD with FD & AP engaged (reversionary mode)

The C182 G1000 has a fully integrated flight director and autopilot with lateral and vertical navigation modes. It has all the functions that you would find in a modern jet airliner, like:

* Lateral navigation: Heading, VOR/LOC/BC navigation or flight plan RNAV lateral navigation

* Vertical navigation: Maintain altitude, level change maintaining IAS, vertical speed, ILS glidepath or following of the vertical path in the RNAV flight plan.


There is even a go around (GA) button to change the FD mode. Only the autothrottle is missing.


Nothing to do with the crappy autopilot system found in the 172 G1000, which is not integrated in the Garmin system.


PS: Actually this display is the MFD with all the PFD info in the emergency reversionary mode, but they are indistinguishable with this function activated.
