What counts as glass cockpit experience (for a resume)?

 

Fully integrated with engine instruments, I assume?

 

Thanks!

EADI EHSI PFD MFD primary instruments.

Standby instruments can be steam or glass, but primary cannot be steam.

Is a prospective employer really going to care about glass cockpit time?

Thanks, that's what I figured.

 

G500H?

 

That seems like it should certainly count.

Well, I am looking at a job where it is a plus to have previous glass cockpit experience.

 

I've been flying with a 696 a lot, which I am sure is very similar in operation, yet doesn't qualify as the instrumentation it displays (VSI, ASI, TC, ALT) are all GPS-derived and not based off actual input from the aircraft.
