Adrian Lewer Posted June 6, 2008 Share Posted June 6, 2008 ok guy's, not knowing much about air nav i have decided i might go the gps way after obtaining my X country.(yes the basics will still live with me when i fly) i have been doing some reacarch and decided on the garmin 296 in the future. but (once again) have 50 q' for you all ? #1. what does online jepesen nav data, waas , and blue chart mean ? i was taliking to a couple of people on friday (sorry forgot your names) from ballarat and they where using this great thing called AIRNAV Premium... what a great thing, you just plot stuff on the computer programme and it spits out maps, where to change channels ECT... i was stoked... but to top it off you could use the information you programmed into the computer for the flight and printing WAC's and actualy upload the flight plan to the Garmin 296 WHAT A GREAT TOOL now obviousely you can make your way around controlled airspace by plotting on the map. (refer to #3) #2. can you buy DATA.. how do i explain... like a database of all the airfields in australia so if i wanted to fly in flight without AIRNAV i could hop in after checking the weather turn on the gps and take off from ballarat and push lets say tooradin and off we go.. follow the yellow brick road.. #3. on the subject will the garmin (or can you make it) without the aid of AIRNAV, make you aware of restricted airspace, different classes of airspace, so on my flight from ballarat to tooradin will it (or can i ask it or make it) make me fly around controlled airspace/restricted areas ? cheers.
