Devonport TAS. First weekend of March 2018

Planning continues for our Devonport TAS conference being held from 2nd to 4th March 2018.

WE have some exciting announcements as far as guest presenters and speakers. Our program is taking shape along the lines of feedback from members who attended Goolwa.

Devonport is a beautiful part of the world so please come and join us. Save the date now.

If you are planning any sort of Avionics upgrade including ADSB, or an upgrade to IFR, we will cover that. LOBO Oz is pleased to announce that Patrick Coleman, our Australian and New Zealand Sales Manager from Garmin, will be presenting at Devonport. An ideal opportunity to see the Garmin gear first hand and ask questions specific to us here in Oz.

Feedback from Oshkosh and from the joys of fault finding new avionics like the G3X etc. When you ring Garmin Support with your problem, the first question they ask now is: Do you have a fast stack hub installed. If yes they will ask you to call back when the hub is removed.
