Annual inspections and ARC renewals

Navboys has moved to Lasham Airfield and we have expanded our team to include a total of 4 BGA inspectors and 3 ARC signatories. This means that we are well-positioned to carry out annual inspections and ARC renewals on all types including turbos and self-launchers, composite repair work (including insurance estimates), modification, refinishing, and almost any other glider maintenence job. 

We still offer our usual panel refurbishment services as well as avionics installations.

Please find our current pricelist here.


Instrument installation and glider panel rebuilds

We don’t just supply and support instruments we fit them too! We can also completely rework your panel with new instruments as required, rewire and repaint. If you are happy with the existing panel but are not so pleased with the bird's nest of old kettle cables that it’s wired up with we can rewire and re-plumb it to the highest standards.

8.33kHz Radio Installation

Upgrading from 25kHz to 8.33kHz unfortunately is not always straight forward, often requiring the upgrade of accompanying hardware (microphones, PTT switches etc.). We can supply all the equipment you need as well as fit everything for you to make this transition as painless as possible.

Contact us here to discuss your radio upgrade.


Software and firmware upgrades

Every year, sometimes twice a year your moving map needs updating, firmware, software or new airspace and turnpoint files. Every couple of years your Flarm needs new firmware. You can dig out the manual, download the files, find the cables, wade through instructions then hope it has all worked.


...Or you can

  • send the instrument to us
  • or book a visit
  • or book a phone talk through


And we will sort it for you.
