Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 offers a new flight planning option that allows you to create a flight plan on any of the company’s seamless charts.
Your flight plan and way points can be created by either typing in an airport identifier or by using the “One Touch” add, remove and insert way point feature. You can also locate intersections, navaids and search for nearest airports to add to your flight plan without ever leaving your chart. Selecting the Flight Planner main menu page will allow to reorganize way points, auto reverse your flight plan for your return, customize your airplane profile, file your flight plan and more, according to company officials. Flight plan out of view? The one touch “Display Route” icon allows you to view your entire route instantly.
Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 gives you the opportunity with itsPLUS” plans to overlay your Instrument Approaches and/or Flight Guide Airport Diagrams on the Seamless Charts in geo-referenced location. Zoom in on your desired airport’s icon, using Apple’s standard “pan, pinch & drag” interface and watch as the entire Flight Guide Airport Diagram comes into view without ever having to leave your chart, according to company officials. With iEFB’s Moving Map capability, your aircraft’s geo-referenced location is displayed on both the chart and the over-laying Flight Guide Airport Diagram. To take it a step further, Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 allows you to overlay a semi transparent IFR instrument approach, geo-referenced right on a Low or High Enroute, Sectional or WAC chart.
Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 also includes a “Track Up” feature, allowing you to manually toggle between either “North up” or “Track Up” depending on your desired display. You can also set your charts to default to “Track Up.”
Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 has added the ability to alert and display traffic graphically, TCAS-like, using the ZAON PCAS XRX connected to Flight Guide’s FLY-Wi GPS. Traffic shows on Flight Guide iEFB’s Seamless Charts with Moving Map, displaying standard TCAS I symbols. Flight Guide iEFB will identify the location, distance, vertical separation and heading of any aircraft within the traffic system range. Pilots will have immediate situational awareness of traffic that they can easily track. Flight Guide iEFB’s traffic feature is included in the Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 update and available free with all Flight Guide iEFB subscription data plans.
