Roger’s Runway: Overseas flights


RogersrunwayAviation_3Since our aviation units can work anywhere in the world, people are always asking how they can make their unit work outside of the United States. For folks going across the pond (better known as the Atlantic Ocean) having the correct database on the unit is important, as your options are limited. If you are planning an outback adventure in Australia, you too, can load a foreign database on your portable unit. Keep in mind however, that the handheld units can only hold one aviation database at a time. You can replace that database with another database but you will need a computer to do that with. Currently, if you are planning on flying to Europe in your plane, and the Americas database is loaded, the Atlantic can be installed when you hook the GPS up to a laptop and install that database. I would recommend however, that you have the Atlantic database purchased before you leave your home since an Internet connection may be hard to get.  As for the panel mounted units, you just need to get a Navdata card from Jeppesen that has the area that you need for you overseas excursion. Enjoy the flight!
