As a special bonus to those buying online at http://www.FlightGuide.me" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; we will be sending all customers a Garmin GDB file with all the co-ordinates from the flight guide edition 2. This version be available from mid next week, as the first print run is sold out bar our demo copies. This will be a huge time saver as well a valuable inflight cockpit safety aid. The information will be on screen in your nearest/user page screen when you need it, and not floating around in a book thats floating about (or forgotten). The waypoints will have a custom symbol graphic so you can positively identify the source of the co-ordinates. Needless to say when the come from our suyrvey GPS, they won't be somewhere in the deep blue ocean....
Careful how you fly it.....

just recived my copy in post today and have to applaud you ,alot of work went into it and its a credit to you ..well done
look forward to the gps file another great idea
Just received mine this morning. Looks really good with a seeming emphasis towards the microlight
community. I never realised there were so many fields available for us.
Looking forward to comparing it with Kevin's guide
Mr Garmin if you' re on frequency - contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send it to you too.... be nice to replace all those R's in the wrong places cluttering up our screens.
I can help you out a bit on that if you want to do it and need any help.
Which GPS is it that you are using? If it is PocktFMS, I can help.
Hand edited this to suit Flymap format for my gps. Bit tedious but didn't take too long.
If you want either file, let me know.
You be amazed how far off some of the Garmin waypoints are.... Try Bantry. Some of the local lakes are named wrong too. Try Lough Owel.....If you have a Garmin there will be the little "R" in a cirlcle for alot of private strips. I cant delete those, but for our home base the Garmin waypoint is far enough out that you wouldnt want to be using it in marginal wx. GPS is a personal thing I suppose and everyone has thier own settings and preferences. I'm a big fan of having all the points installed notwithstanding certain duplication.
