    FAQ

    How many downloads will I consume per flight hour?

    New weather data is available every 15 minutes. So when running the ADL device in automatic download mode it will download four times per hour. So outside of included downloads you are looking at 4 x 0,99 EUR = 3,96 EUR + VAT per hour as a worst case.

    How many downloads might I use on a continuous plan?

    Typical pilot owners get along with the free 20 downloads included with the continuous service plan A. Especially once the plan runs through the first winter, most pilots accumulate some unused downloads which they can then use in summer. Unless you fly commercially you will most probably not have to budget for many downloads outside the included volume.

    How many downloads might I use on a trip kit?

    Obviously this will depend completely on your usage. We have trip kits with just one downlaod which probably got orderd just in case worse weather did develop. And we get one day trip kits with 10-20 downloads if pilots really flew for hours through awfull weather. But the general feedback is that when more downloads have been used pilots report they have been worth every penny on a very challenging flight.
