AeroCharts has released iTerps, a new app that allows iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch users to download and store the entire FAA Terminal Procedures Publication (TERPS) library of instrument approaches, departure procedures and STARS on their hand-held devices. iTerps displays current charts in the cockpit without without the need for an internet connection. While iTerps is optimized for the iPad’s large display, it can also be used on the smaller iPhone and iPod Touch.
Charts are updated — on demand — through iTerps each 28-day FAA publication cycle. Users can download individual states or the entire U.S. TERPS library. The charts are delivered in PDF format for a fraction of the cost of the traditional printed 26-volume set distributed by the FAA. iTerps downloads include:
- Instrument Approach Procedure charts (IAP)
- Departure Procedure charts (DP)
- Standard Terminal Arrival charts (STAR)
- Airport Diagrams
- Take-Off, Radar and Alternate Minima textural procedures
Once downloaded, charts may be selected by state, city or airport, or searched for by the airport’s 3- or 4-letter identifier. Top 10 charts viewed remain available as favorites. The iTerps high definition digital presentation graphics may be re-sized with normal touch commands.
iTerps is available on the iTunes App Store for just $4.99, which includes the App and an initial full charts download. Subsequent 28-day cycles may be downloaded for only 99¢ each.
