Our Eye in the Sky
We love hearing from our users. One of our favorite Instagram accounts, @carlsbadpilot got in touch with us to show some of his use-case scenarios with his Bad Elf GPS units. He's a US-based pilot and typically flies CRJ-700 aircraft. His story and photos are below.
Hi Bad Elf! I have been using the Bad Elf GPS since 2011. I fly CRJ-700 aircraft, which can reach altitudes of 41,000ft and Mach .85. Needless to say, the Bad Elf GPS has exceeded all expectations in the airliner. I use it as a purely back-up position source with ForeFlight and JeppFD apps on the iPad, and I am always able to verify my position with the utmost integrity.
Before I was an airline pilot, I started my career just as any other pilot, time building in small aircraft. My main job was spotting swordfish for commercial fisherman and reporting fish to BloodyDecks.com, a very popular site for fisherman. I used my Bad Elf GPS in the Citabria we flew in association with my navigation software and iPad. With the Bad Elf GPS, I was able to precisely pin-point the location of the fish to my customers, within 5 ft of the actual location! This device made my job a lot easier and very precise.
I have been a customer of Bad Elf for 5 years now, and the technology is the best of its kind. I recommend this product to student pilots and airline pilots alike. Whether you are just flying with your friends in a Cessna 172 at 120kts, or precisely tracking your location at 41,000ft at over 600mph, the Bad-Elf GPS is the way to go! Cheers to the Bad Elf team for continuing to make amazing products for the aviation industry.
