Repairs, Annual Inspections and ARC Renewals

Navboys has moved into a large workshop in Congleton, Cheshire. 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 maintenance job. 

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

Please find our current pricelist here.


Avionics Installation and Instrument 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.

Contact us here to discuss your project.


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.


Firmware Updates

Every year we recommend you update your moving map, electronic variometer and Flarm firmware. We also recommend updating airspace and turnpoint files regularly too, so that you are always flying with the latest information. You can dig out the manual, download the files, find the cables, wade through instructions.

Or we can help you with our various services.
