Sporty’s debuts approval service for iPad/ForeFlight cockpit use

Pilots flying large turbine-powered airplanes governed by Part 91F or flying as a fractional on-demand or Part 135 operation may need formal FAA approval to use an iPad in pursuit of a paperless cockpit. Now these pilots have some help from Sporty’s.

“Gaining approval for your iPad as an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) can be a time-consuming and complicated process,” says Sporty’s Vice President John Zimmerman. “In short, let Sporty’s do the work for you.”

Sporty’s Easy Approval is a complete solution for FAA approval of your iPad as an EFB and paper chart replacement, using the ForeFlight Mobile app. Sporty’s Easy Approval system includes required documentation, comprehensive training and testing and operational guidance gained from its experienced team of pilots.

Sporty’s Easy Approval includes a detailed description of the approval process and plan for execution, including templates for required documents, checklists, operational procedures, a training program, and procedures for flight line evaluation.

Sporty’s comprehensive training program for use of your iPad with ForeFlight includes Sporty’s new Flying with ForeFlight training video, which covers every detail of operation.

A standard application for approval includes up to four aircraft and training for 20 pilots. Unlimited General Operations Manual updates are included, as well as one custom update if necessary for approval. Additional customization is available upon request.

Sporty’s Easy iPad Approval [#5201A] is available for $799.
