Metal Seagulls Support Packages are based on our tested and proven ability to provide help where you need it most – right in your workshop/hangar – without the cost of travel, wherever possible.
We provide standard telephone tech support on all products sold… but sometimes you want something more. Our packages are aimed at providing that, across the world.
Video-Conference Support – right into your workshop or hangar!
We have invested in a 48-inch monitor to enable us to see your aircraft practically life-size whilst we talk with you about your installation and needs. All you need is to have Skype (or other packages as may be determined) on your smart phone, a good internet connection, and to chat to us on loud speech during the support session. We then ask you to move the phone camera around to enable us to see what you are working on, and together we can move your project forwards. (this can be done with a laptop too)
We can also discuss in ‘shared screen mode’ your installation challenges, helping with ideas for your fuel, wiring, etc. We know how challenging it can be, and we want to make sure that you feel supported and encouraged in your build/modification. (clearly all modifications must be approved by the relevant authority as applies.
Our teleconference packages are charged on ‘connection time’, ensuring a total transparent costing structure. For instance, if you purchase 1 hour of support, we just monitor the connection time recorded by the computer. If you have used 48 minutes, you have 12 minutes left, or can top up.
