Equipment and Testing Materials

Below are various options for different items you may need during different stages of your training. I’ve included what I have as well as other options, when applicable. Click any of the links below to order straight from Amazon (with the exception of the home built Stratux).

Headset’s

Bose A20 – Personally Use and Recommend!

Rugged AirLightspeed ZuluLightspeed Sierra – Close friends have used and personally recommend. Less than the Bose but similar functions.

David Clarks – Great starter headset, used that as my first pair/training pair.

iPad location and weather

Stratux– Personally Use and Recommend!

Prebuilt Stratux – same as above but built already for you so if you aren’t good with tools, we recommend!

Flight Computer

E6B – Solid piece of equipment for anyone who doesn’t want to spend the money on an electronic version but needs one for a few checkrides.

Electronic E6B – takes the guess work out of the human error with a manual E6B.

Paper E6B – great for pilots on a budget, or plan on getting just their PPL.

Radio

Comm/Nav Handheld – great back up in the plane, can pick up VOR radials and Localizers for that “just in case” moment.

Comm Only Handheld – great to put in your bag for when
