Just to expand on my prior posting, I'm starting to think the GTN650 will be a requirement for an IFR trainer. Even though the newer GPS navigators from Garmin are cheaper, if the intent of the RV-12 is to use as an IFR trainer, it sounds like the NAV radio will be a requirement. Better question for a CFII (hopefully someone here can give input), but a GPS only panel, although legal for IFR flight, would not let a student pilot working towards their instrument rating perform 3 different approaches. Better question, what is the minimum panel requirements required by a CFII for a student to earn his/her certificate for IFR?
