About Us

NAVboys has been setup to better serve the gliding community with the best of breed products fully supported with honest and practical advice. We are responding to a growing need within the gliding community for support and advice for the new and improved instruments and planning tools available for your glider. With the increasing regulation, annual changes to airspace, turn points and navigation software, we believe there is a better way. Spending half the season getting your gliding kit updated or worse, flying with out of date software, firmware, airspace and turn points could seriously spoil your day.

Our website will be updated regularly with all of the latest and best equipment but to keep you bang up to date, why not register with our newsletter. We won’t “Spam” you to death but will keep you informed of what’s new, what needs updating, when and more importantly, how.

You don’t need to wait for the newsletter, why not give one of us a call or drop us a line and we will do our best to advise and help.

Have a great season and fly safe

Shaun has been gliding for 14 years, has all three diamonds and is a keen club and Nationals pilot. With a background in IT and an interest in navigation, starting a gliding  business seemed to be a natural choice.

Jake started gliding after a trial flight at the age of 14 with the Kent Gliding Club and has never looked back. He moved to Nympsfield when he started his Aerospace Engineering Degree at the University of Bristol where he started flying Cross Country. Following graduation, he has since gone on to achieve all three diamonds and has worked as a professional gliding instructor for two seasons, including one in New Zealand. Now a keen cross-country and competition pilot, Jake has always been a "go to" person for help and support on the grid. Recently Jake took part in the Junior Worlds coming a very creditable 5th and followed this up with a win at the Junior Nationals in 2017. Working with Navboys now gives Jake the chance to provide support to fellow pilots further afield and help them reach their aspirations for trouble free effective navigation, communication and pilot equipment.
