Hilton Software LLC has unveiled an upgrade to its WingX and WingX Pro7 products by partnering with two industry-leading aviation data companies – Control Vision Corp and Seattle Avionics Inc. WingX Pro7 Version 4.5 for iPhone and iPad adds pinch-to-zoom VFR Sectional Charts and IFR Enroute Charts and enables the simultaneous viewing of enroute charts, georeferenced approach charts, and altitude-aware terrain maps.
Version 4.5 also adds advanced WebPlan Flight Planning from Seattle Avionics to enable pilots to plan wind-optimized flights while avoiding terrain as necessary.
“We are thrilled to work with Hilton Software to offer our ChartData geo-referenced approach plate data for WingX Pro7 for iPhone/iPad and for WingX for Android,” said Steve Podradchik, CEO of Seattle Avionics. “Now pilots get geo-referenced data produced from Seattle Avionics’ FAA-certified processing system on their iPhone, iPad, and Android devices using WingX.”
WingX includes up-to-date and accurate fuel prices thanks to a new partnership with Control Vision Corp. WingX searches for the cheapest fuel prices and then automatically filters and sorts the prices by various criteria to quickly find the best fuel stop. Fuel prices can be searched while in-flight with no Internet connection.
“We’re proud to add WingX as a 100LL.com partner. Users of WingX will be delighted at the savings they experience at the pump. Cheaper fuel simply translates into more flying!” said Jay Humbard, President and CEO of Control Vision Corp.
By supporting Apple’s new AirPrint features, WingX Pro7 Version 4.5 will wirelessly print approach charts and airport diagrams directly from an iPhone or iPad.
Dr. Hilton Goldstein, CEO of Hilton Software LLC said: “As a Certificated Flight Instructor, I find these new capabilities invaluable to enhance situational awareness, reduce the cost of flying, and help reduce CFIT accidents.”
WingX is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile devices. WingX Pro7 for iPad with fuel prices is available now on the Apple App Store. WingX Pro7 Version 4.5 for iPhone and iPad will be available as a free update later this year and will be iOS 4.2-compatible. WingX for Android is available from the Android Market and from Hilton Software’s mobile page
