Student Pilot Supplies

Hey all,
I just got enrolled at the Livermore site for an October start date! I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been studying and have ordered all of the required supplies/equipment. I was curious if you all had input into other items that were helpful/you couldn’t get through school without.

Thanks in advance!

Kaela,

Don’t worry, you will end up going to the local pilot store and spending plenty of money :slight_smile:

Kaela,

Congrats on your enrollment! I loved having my External Battery. No more
worrying about my iPad dying. Another handy gadget is the Stratus. Some
people swear by it. I never had the money to buy one. It’s a $900 device
that creates its own wifi network to provide up to 5 iPad users with real
time weather info, traffic, altitude, and GPS data. Depending on who your
instructor is at LVK they might already have one. TOTALLY up to you. It is
actually better to not use one in the beginning while you’re developing
your situational awareness.
