FlightPro has released a flight planning and navigation app for the Android platform.
FlightPro was developed after the founders could not find an app that met the scope of their requirements for a streamlined experience for flight planning and navigation.
The Android platform was chosen as the launch pad for FlightPro, as its hardware and software flexibility ensure each pilot can choose the device best-suited to their individual in-cockpit requirements, company officials said.
Chief Technology Officer of FlightPro, Mark Spencer said of the new release, “Since day one, we have worked tirelessly to develop the app’s features in a way that gives pilots quick access to the data they need as they need it, with an easy-to-master user interface and intuitive workflow.”
TR Wright, CEO of FlightPro, added, “2014 is going to be a big year for FlightPro, beyond this release we have some very special things in store for pilots of all ratings and experience.”
