DAeC-Ferienlager „Jugend fliegt“ – noch freie Plätze im August in Eisenach!

Posted on


Sie kennen Jugendlichein Ihrem Umkreis, die Fliegen cool findenund keine Lust auf Langeweile in den Sommerferien haben? Dann könnte das hier genau das Richtige sein! Das Ferienlager „Jugend fliegt“ der Luftsportjugend im Deutschen Aero Club e.V.dreht sich rund um die Fliegerei. 

In der Woche vom 4.-10. August lernen Jugendliche im Alter zwischen 14-17Jahren auf dem Flugplatz Eisenach-Kindel die Welt des Fliegens und des Luftsports kennen.

Dabei ist auch für alle Jugendlichen mit ein wenig Geschick etwas dabei: Begleitet wird das Programm nämlich von zahlreichen Workshops, in denen die Teilnehmer in den Modellbau hinein schnuppern und ihre Fähigkeiten beim Bau von verschiedenen Flugmodellen wie z.B. Balsagleitern und Raketen unter Beweis stellen. So lernen die Jugendlichen auch die verschiedenen Disziplinen des Luftsports kennen: Ob Segelflug, Motorflug, Ballonfahren, Hängegleiter oder eben Modellbau, bei „Jugend fliegt“ ist alles dabei. 

Dazu gibt es für die Teilnehmer auch noch spannende Vorträge rund um das Thema Luftfahrt: „Die Fliegerei begeistert viele schon seit Kindheitstagen an. Dabei ist es uns wichtig zu zeigen, dass es nicht nur Piloten gibt“, betont Jan-Hendrik Römermann aus dem Organisatorenteam der Luftsportjugend, „ob Privatmaschine oder Ferienflieger, es ist immer eine Teamleistung. Fluglotsen auf dem Tower, Flugzeugmechaniker oder die Flugbegleiter, alle arbeiten mit.“ Deshalb werden die Vorträge unter anderem von Experten der Deutschen Flugsicherung, Jeppesen, dem Deutschen Wetterdienst und Piloten der Lufthansaunterstützt. „Wir wollen bei den Jugendlichen Begeisterung wecken und Möglichkeiten des Luftsports zeigen“, so Bundesjugendleiter Max Heilmann, „und den besonders Interessierten Perspektiven bieten, wie man das Hobby zum Beruf machen könnte.“  

Hört sich interessant an? Noch gibt es freie Plätze !

Garmin GNS 400/500 series – non-WAAS & WAAS – 8.33 kHz frequencies

Posted on

Since the beginning of January 2019, especially after the change to the 8.33kHz frequencies, Garmin has informed us about the following:

Related to the database format, older unit software versions do not provide information for facilities using 8.33kHz spacing from the navigation database.

All GNS 400/500 non-WAAS and WAAS units are affected and are not able to provide the 8.33 kHz information automatically.

Although Jeppesen is unable to help with a new NavData update, the 8.33 kHz frequencies can be found on Jeppesen Charts and on AIPs and it is possible to tune the 8.33 kHz frequencies manually as the GNS 400/500 non-WAAS and WAAS units are 8.33 compliant.

Please find all the details here, provided by Garmin and please also note the overview of Garmin’s Avionic units where a software update is the solution: https://s23634.pcdn.co/en-US/aviationalerts/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/1865A.pdf

GPS “Week Number” Rollover

Posted on


On 6 April 2019, the “week number” broadcasted by GPS satellites will be reset to zero. Some panel mounted GPS navigation systems and portable units require a software update to ensure proper functionality.

Many GPS receivers are prepared for the rollover and will continue to work without problems. Others need a firmware update so that they don't suddenly behave as if they've made a leap back to 21 Aug 1999. 

In order to mitigate any safety risk related to the GPS week rollover, EASA recommends taking the following proactive measures: 

  • Ensure that the latest software update is installed on potentially affected GPS receiver(s)

  • Request information from the GPS receiver manufacturer regarding its robustness against the GPS week rollover

  • If possible, perform tests that simulate the GPS week rollover, e.g. using a GPS simulator

Easily find your Garmin avionics software version and system IDs.

This information is crucial for placing your order correctly, and ensuring there are no issues between the update data provided by us and the transfer into your avionics unit. If you are updating your data via Garmin FS510, JDM helps to find the correct system ID. 

Please have this information available when you place orders. 

1. With the latest update to version 3.7, JDM shows the correct avionics software version and/or system ID: 

  • The SD card must be inserted into your computer 

  • The SD card must have been used at least once to upload data into the Garmin avionics 

  • A new or reformatted SD card will not have the system ID information available

  • Click the JDM menu in the upper left corner

  • Go to Tech Support > Show Airframe Info


2. The pop-up displays the airframe name, Garmin system ID and avionics software version.
