Bendix/King by Honeywell reports that its AV8OR handheld GPS navigation unit is now available with fuel price and airport information from Airguide Publications’ “Flight Guide.”
Restaurant, hotel, taxi, and discount information is included as part of the package, which sells for a $99 annual fee. The upgrade is accessed via Internet, along with daily fuel price information updates. For more information, see the Web site. The new service plus Bendix/King’s free GoFly software can be downloaded online.
GoFly provides extended runway centerlines, a winds aloft indicator, increased color range for terrain and precipitation screens, additional weather services for those with weather access, obstacle information, increased flight log memory, a ZAON portable collision avoidance interface, and RS-232 output for non-certified autopilots.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
