General Conditions For All Plans
All prices plus 19% German VAT if applicable.
We reserve the right to charge extra for excessive use with download
corridors much longer than 400NM but currently there is no extra charge.
SMS/text and email messages (outgoing or incoming) will be charged
as 50% of a download.
Automatic position updates every 10 minutes are included with all
active service plans. A fair use policy applies.
Payments can be made by credit card or SEPA direct debit.
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.
