Piper Aircraft is sponsoring the launch of AirNav.com’s new app for iTouch, iPhone and iPads.
The first 2,000 subscribers will have the option to receive an annual $4.99 subscription to the application for free when they complete a brief online survey from Piper Aircraft. To subscribe to the new application, go to AirNav.com, click on Apps and follow the instructions.
“Piper welcomes the opportunity to support the 35,000 visitors who access AirNav daily for valuable information about FBOs, airports and surrounding areas,” said Piper Executive Vice President Randy Groom. “We embrace this kind of information sharing across all aspects of aviation because it makes flying easier, more enjoyable and more productive.”
AirNav.com is an online service that provides updated information to aid aviators and aviation enthusiasts. In addition to the introduction and rollout, Piper is supporting the new AirNav.com iApp and its various website pages, including Airport, Navaids, Airspace Fixes, Aviation Fuel, and AIRBOSS.
The new app does not depict the entire AirNav database, nor replace flight planning software, but it enables quick access to some important data, according to company officials. The information on the app is pulled from the AirNav website while connected to the Internet, but any search can be saved to an operator’s phone for in-flight use or while out of Internet contact.
