Airguide Publications is launching a new application for Apple’s iPad-Flight Guide iEFB, which has special packages available for both VFR and IFR pilots.
Flight Guide iEFB-VFR includes all airport and supplementary information that Flight Guide is known for, and additionally provides sectionals and terminal area charts (TACs) to satisfy FAA flight requirements, company officials said. Sectionals and TACs are geo-referenced and can be zoomed in or out using Apple’s standard “pinch & drag” interfaces. Touching an airport on a sectional will bring up that airport’s information including: airport diagrams (with taxiways identified), class B, C and selected D airspace graphics, frequencies (navigation and communication), flight operational information, FBOs (services, location and contact information), fuel prices, food, transportation, lodging and recreational information. A link from the airport information page will take you to that airport on the sectional. The iPad’s built-in GPS will display your location on the sectional or TAC. With an Internet connection, NEXRAD weather will overlay on the sectionals and METAR data will be available on the airport information page. Flight Guide iEFB-VFR provides weekly updates for the lower 48 states.
Flight Guide iEFB-IFR contains everything the VFR package provides with the addition of instrument approach plates and geo-referenced IFR Low Enroute charts. Touching an airport on the enroute chart will display that airport’s information.
Flight Guide iEFB-PRO includes everything Flight Guide iEFB-IFR provides, plus IFR High Enroute charts that are geo-referenced as well. In addition to the lower 48 states, chart coverage has been expanded to include: Alaska, Hawaii and the Caribbean.
