Run by a team of very active cross country and competition pilots, there is no one better positioned in the country to help you with troubleshooting, advising on and upgrading your avionics. Navboys are also expanding their spares and hardware supplies in order to try to provide a one-stop-shop solution for glider pilots.


Navboys has proudly been supporting the Junior Nationals since 2013. Navboys continues to support UK Junior Gliding in fundraising and helping juniors to get access to modern equipment such as Oudies or FLARM for their gliders with discounts or affordable payment plans.
