Overview

Cambridge Aero Instruments offers the world's best soaring instruments.  The 300 Series is the smallest, yet most advanced soaring instrument system available.  The new 302A is a very nice flight recorder with impressive specifications.

Support
My goal is to help you find the perfect soaring instrument system for your needs.  I strive to offer the best technical support available from any soaring instrument dealer.  I have been flying with Cambridge products for 10 years.  I earned my first L-NAV and GPS-NAV by creating CAI's first web site which included online GPS-NAV and L-NAV Demos.  Of course I am knowledgeable on CAI products, but I also strive to be up to speed on competitive soaring instruments, GPS units of all types, Pocket PCs, cradles for Pocket PCs, and cables for connecting them all together.

Repairs and Calibrations
I (Paul Remde of Cumulus Soaring, Inc.) can replace logger backup batteries, re-seal the electronic security seal, and calibrate the logger altimeters for all Cambridge GPS-NAV and 302 products. You can see details here: Services.

Garmin GPS Failures in Cambridge Products
Cambridge soaring instruments (and most other brands) used Garmin GPS engines which seem to have a bug such that they are failing. The issue has occurred to a very high percentage of Cambridge products. If yours hasn't failed, it probably will. The great news is that Gary Kammerer (formerly of Cambridge and ClearNav) can repair or replace the built-in Garmin GPS - making the instrument fully functional again. If your Cambridge flight recorder won't record a flight log, or records flights with a date from several years ago, your logger probably needs repair. Please see the PDF file below for details on the services Gary offers.

Overview Video
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video with sound must be worth a million.  Below is a 13 minute overview of the Cambridge 300 Series Soaring Flight Instruments.  It allows you to see and hear all the functions of the 302.  It is a great way to see if it is the right vario for your glider.  Or, if you already own one, it is a good refresher course on how to use it.  If you find it useful then please buy from me.
