GPS Device Training

 

Device training specified here is specifically for hand-held or panel-mounted devices that do not form a requirement for EFIS Differences Training.

There are a huge variety of hand-held aviation GPS devices (or apps) on the market-place, and its often the case that many, many pilots do not use them to their full potential.

And that's where we can help!

We are extremely familiar with the concepts of such devices, and regularly teach how to get the best from them.

What do we mean by GPS Devices? Well, not only bespoke hardware, but these days, also apps that can run on smart phones too.

Here's a brief list (not comprehensive though!) of the devices we are more than familiar with:

  • Garmin Pilot III
  • Garmin 430
  • Garmin 530
  • Garmin 650
  • Garmin 750
  • Garmin Pilot Watches D2, D2 Bravo, D2 Bravo Titanium
  • Skydemon
  • Runway HD
  • Garmin Pilot

We haven't listed any training syllabus here for any of these devices since it's more beneficial to do the training ad-hoc to your requirements (both device and current knowledge). Just contact us to discuss what you need.

See below for further information.

 

Prices

Remember that you are being instructed by an instructor with an enviable reputation for delivering results to you. Our personal objective is to make sure you land with a smile on your face. If you don’t – we haven’t done our job properly.

There are three options for our instructional charges; £50 per hour, £150 per half-day, or £250 per full day.

If you want us to come to you, just add our travelling and accommodation (at cost).

The aircraft costs are extra; you can use your own aircraft, hire from a training organisation local to you, or hire from a training organisation local to us.

 

Where can I do this course?

We are more than happy to come to you wherever you are! However, we normally operate in Essex, with relatively easy access to the airfields in the area. We teach (and examine) regularly (either as part of a club or freelance) at Earls Colne, Andrewsfield, North Weald, Duxford, Crowfield and Cambridge. There are numerous smaller airfields available such as Elmsett, Clacton, Rougham and Great Oakley within easy reach. Southend and Stapleford are also possible.

 

Which Aircraft can I use?

You can use your own or syndicate aircraft, which in some ways, is better since you'll become really familiar with it as part of the course!

If you belong to a flying club already, most organisations are happy for us to instruct in their aircraft if that's an option you'd like to pursue.

If you need to hire an aircraft locally to us, we have access to a variety of aircraft types and training organisations. Please feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
