Hilton Software has introduced a Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS) with Look Ahead Protection to WingX Pro7 for iPad and iPhone. WingX Pro7’s new GPWS warning system alerts pilots to an impending or immediate danger of impacting terrain or an obstacle, company officials said.
WingX Pro7 Version 6.8 also adds new FlightShare technology enabling pilots to share flight information between devices, two-pilot crews, and between a student and a flight instructor.
“Building on our legacy of safety innovations that include our Passive RADAR Altimeter, Synthetic Vision, and integrated ADS-B Weather and Traffic, WingX Pro7 Version 6.8 adds an incredibly powerful look-ahead GPWS system that warns pilots of impending terrain and obstacle threats,” said Dr. Hilton Goldstein, the company’s CEO. “Pilots are using WingX Pro7 in all flying conditions including night and IFR. We are proud to provide pilots with the additional look-ahead capability to help reduce Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) accidents. Version 6.8’s new FlightShare technology is a perfect fit for professional pilots and the training environment. A pilot can plan a flight on an iPhone, FlightShare it with an iPad, then send it wirelessly to an Aspen Connected Panel – very powerful.”
WingX Pro7 Version 6.8 is a free update on the App Store and iTunes. WingX Pro7 is compatible with and optimized for iPad and iPhone running iOS 4, iOS 5, or iOS 6.
