About this app

Airservices Australia's NAIPS service provides flight briefing services to pilots operating in Australian airspace. This app provides a quick and easy way to access basic NAIPS functionality in an app, rather than having to log on via a web browser.

Within the app your username and password are remembered and used automatically, rather than having to log on every hour or so. Current features include location and area briefings and graphic charts (grid point winds, synoptic charts etc.)

Briefings are retained on the device (but marked as outdated after a period of time) so you can easily refer to a previous briefing, or share it via email or other applications. A quick refresh button will get an updated version of any previous briefing - in full, not just changes.

A basic flight-planning mechanism is provided which allows constructing a route with estimates of time, fuel burn etc, and this can be displayed on a map.

Location search uses an on-device database with all Australian airfields, ALAs, navaids and both VFR and IFR waypoints included. Coordinates and distance and direction from your current location are displayed, along with first/last light times.

This app is under active development and more features will be progressively released. All current functionality is free but some future features may be paid-for options.

Unusable keyboard. Edit: Bad interface in general...nothing about this app complies with current android design standards - looks like it was designed by an old weekend warrior coding in his spare time. Uninstalled and replaced with a restored app, Navbag AU, which I've used happily for years. I'm not after support, I'm leaving a review.

Great for getting naips info in a mobile friendly way. UI could be a bit nicer (eg use device keyboard) in places but certainly does the job well.

Great app, used almost daily. Been using it for years but haven't really done a review rating on it. 5 stars, but the only request I would like to make is increasing the validity period from a max 72 hours to 336.
