I received my enablement kit for my 2008 Cessna 172SP about 2 weeks ago and SVT is now active in my aircraft. I am currently completing my instrument training, and my few flights so far with SVT have impressed me with the technology. It really helps to give situational awareness that not only helps you to know what's around you but it seems to help dispel those symptoms you get, like the leans or other spatial disorientation, when visual cues are absent.

Also, the price is $1,150 for the pair of SD cards, not per card, so it is just $1,150, not $2,300.

I would be interested in other people's experience with SVT. I have my plane on-line at an FBO/flight school and both students and instructors have really liked it as well.

My FBO is to cheap to order an upgrade.

That is a downside to renting.

Nothing for the Simulators though. *SVT does not exist for C-172SPs.*

Garmin has a disk for the low wing composite Diamond though!

Cessna 182 172 and 206's with G1000 can have the SVT. They are close to getting the 350 and 400's certified.
