These are just some of the Gadgets & Gizmos I like to fly with:
||The Lightspeed ZULU ANR Headset.
For many years, Bose was
the best headset available. Lightspeed changed that with
the ZULU. She's modern, good looking & the top performer.
Even the price beats the competition. If you haven't tried
a pair of these, I highly recommend it. The
features are certainly an added benefit. I can't find any
flaw with this headset design.
||AvMap EKP IV GPS & So much more!
This is an Invaluable
tool when flying at night, near mountains, under class Bravo or
The first iteration had some flaws with the software, but
they have worked them all out. This company stands behind
it's product & routinely comes out with new updates that it does
not charge it's users for.
Lowrance Airmap 600C
This little guy could easily be a primary GPS system, but I use
it as my backup. Has several different ways of presenting
you with information about airspace and terrain. The batteries
last a long time & reception is never a problem. It's nice
to know it's there if I need it & makes a great travel GPS if I
am going to be flying someone else's aircraft.
Surecheck TrafficScope VRX
(Traffic Proximity Alert System)
Ok, this thing has a few flaws, but it's still quite useful. I'd much rather
have it than not. They just hadn't perfected the technology yet
I think. It gives false alerts & sometimes none at all,
(although the manual explains that false alerts are impossible,
I claim otherwise) Even though it's not perfect, it has caught my attention before my eyes saw traffic on
The new Zaon XRX unit is the way to go
if you are in the market for one of these devices. It even
integrates with a bunch of GPS systems to show traffic on the
GPS screen. The XRX even tells direction. The VRX only tells relative
Altitude & Distance.
2 miles seems to be the useful range for this device but I don't
have externally mounted antennas.
Airport and Frequency Manual. One of the most
used tools in my cockpit. Flight Guide is
clear & has the useful information we need & excludes useless
information. I use it mostly to check frequencies, runway
directions, and traffic pattern altitudes. It even helps
you find the next "$100 hamburger"
