The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has released the FlyQ Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) for the iPad, the latest addition to its family of digital flight planning products.
The new app is a complete pre-and in-flight planning tool that provides airport directory information, aviation weather and flight planning, according to AOPA officials. Key features include geo-referenced moving maps, runway diagrams and approach plates; split screen view; 3D Synthetic Vision; Highway in the Sky display; Levil AHRS connection; and smart auto-routing based on predicted winds aloft.
Other features include: the ability to sync user information, including flight plans, between all FlyQ products; 2D and 3D flight simulator; detailed data on more than 20,000 airports; information on more than 31,000 FBOs; and access to METARs and TAFs.
“Our iPhone and Android app, FlyQ Pocket, has been embraced by our members, with more than 60,000 downloads since its launch in April,” said Chris Ward, AOPA vice president, eMedia. “AOPA’s members asked for an even more powerful app, and now they have FlyQ EFB, which offers users the tools they need to make flight planning smarter and more convenient.”
The AOPA FlyQ EFB requires a subscription purchase. AOPA members can buy subscriptions directly from AOPA and save 30% at AOPA.org/flyq/tablet. Users must download the app from the iTunes App Store to access their subscription.
