Will the live webinars be recorded, and available for later review as well?

Be sure you get that set up, archiving that is, to allow for non-live review. Not many folks can make single date/time webinars.

Agreed, that's why we will have multiple dates and times. The Master CFI will also have a DVD available.

Also, the last link is BAD, it has an extra space (%20) at the beginning.

Simpson,

I've been waiting....

"13. Integrated WiFi & Bluetooth® Connectivity to iPad programs like FlyQ & ForeFlight"

Did SA make their IFD connectivity plans official with FlyQ?:)

Great!  Will he be demonstrating 10.2? Also, I agree with Orest. They should be captured and published on YouTube for all to see at their convenience.

I'd also recommend collecting some questions in advance to supplement the questions asked live.

I'm really glad you all are doing this.

I communicated with Gary Reeves about the 5+ hour IFD training videos. For those curious, he will be demonstrating 10.1. However, within a few weeks of 10.2 release, he will email a link to those who purchased the training videos to a new video demonstrating the new features of 10.2.

I don't think it is released yet. It will be by Gary Reeve, and within his group's products I think.

Sorry. I should have included a link to the Video Pre-Order page. As Orest mentioned, they are not completed yet, but you can pre-order them here:


*edit* added the hyperlink for you -SB

Avidyne page at PilotSafety

Here is the free video

The press release refers to a free 90 minute training video but the video is 60 minutes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I recently attended an Avidyne Live IFD Seminar put on by Gary Reeves. It was well worth attending. There was a lot of verbal interaction, hands-on training and I discovered many things about my IFD that I didn't realize it would do, and I've been flying behind the IFD since December 2014.

There are probably CFIs out there that really knew the Avidynes, but no one I've seen knows the IFDs and Foreflight better than Gary Reeves.

We have a sizable investment in the Avidyne upgrades on our panels. Whether you attend a Gary Reeves seminar (www.AvidyneTraining.com) or buy his videos I feel you'll find it money well spent!

Talked with Gary Reeves at Oshkosh, he fixed a problem/question I had going in on a vector to final at Port Columbus (CMH)  and pointed out how easy it is to switch to Vectors after I made an oops, RNAV/GPS entry.  (Showed me two ways to fix it) I bought his DVD - it's excellent
