The Sabena Aeroclub is organising a refresher course for its pilots on February 10th, followed by a Happy Hour (cheese & wine). The refresher course starts at 19h. We ask you register for the Happy Hour before 08/02/17. All members and their family are welcome.
The Sabena Aeroclub offers its pilots a GPS training on the Garmin GNS430, similar to the one in the DA20. The course will take place on March 25 starting at 20h in the clubhouse.
The course objectives are:
- A basic comprehension of the GNSS.
- Understanding the pagination of the unit.
- Defining a user waypoint.
- Editing a flight plan.
- Achieving a fast and comfortable manipulation at a glance to avoid time spent head down in the cockpit.
The course will not cover:
- any kind of procedure.
- vertical navigation.
Caveat: this training is not a lecture, but a hands-on training, and it will be profitable only if you can bring your laptop with this GNS430W trainer installed. Minor differences with regard to our GNS430, but the GNS430 (without the W suffix) trainer is for WindowsXP only. If you still have WindowsXP (in standalone it still works well for what is following), please download this GNS430 trainer.
All club members are invited for our annual refresher course which will be held on the 31st of August 2018. Special topics this year are latent failures in aviation, aviation reporting, Belgian AIP changes and club communication. This interesting evening will end with one of our usual Happy Hours.
On the 2nd of September 2018 we hold our Castle Road Trophy. More information about these events can be found on the events page. Further info is provided by email.
