FltPlan.com has officially released its new free iPad app, FltPlan Go.
The app adds many features for users of FltPlan.com, according to company officials.
The legacy FltPlan app was originally created four years ago to provide pilots with airport information and approach charts. As pilots’ in-flight needs grew, the legacy app continued to add more features and functionality, according to the company. FltPlan.com developers determined however that in order to continue to add more robust capabilities it was better to start over with an improved platform and they developed FltPlan Go, officials explained.
Just like the legacy app, FltPlan Go is integrated with FltPlan’s website for flight planning in one centralized user account.
The new app features include breadcrumbs that leave a trail on the screen to show where the user has flown; rubber-banding of routing in flight planning; ability to create and edit routes offline; and expanded FBO airport information including fuel prices.
In addition, features include a downloadable world map; both Clarity ADS-B and XM WX capabilities; free geo-referenced airport approach and taxi charts; and helicopter routes, TAC charts, SUAs for offline use. Users can also write notes on multiple approach charts and save those notes on the charts. All these features will work online and offline.
FltPlan’s current legacy app will remain available for use and the company will continue to support and maintain it, company officials noted.
