About this app

The Hughes App is the first of its kind, Navigation and Weather communications tool, connecting Hughes valued customers directly to various channels within the Hughes organization. It incorporates SMS into various reporting and notification features internally and externally. Each user will be required to register before being able to use the Hughes App. After validation, subscribers will have access to their Special Instrument Procedures (SIAPs) as well as weather and NOTAMS associated with these navigation procedures. Use of the Hughes App is free of charge to existing Hughes customers. Non-Hughes customers can subscribe through the Apple/Android store. Subscribers will only have access to their own SIAP charting products. Subscribers can list their base airport/heliport along with other favorites, along with their aircraft and avionics. Whenever the Hughes App is opened, it will automatically pull weather, NOTAMS and current SIAP charting. Hughes SIAP charting features a scannable QR inventory code in the lower left-hand corner of the Plan View. When submitting a report or request to Hughes, the App will allow the subscriber to either scan the QR code or select the chart from the library. The subscriber can also access their inventory of current and future instrument procedures that are in development to view the current status. A robust Reporting menu is available to provide instant notifications and communications. For example, if a subscriber wishes to report an obstacle, a geo-referenced camera will appear and allow the subscriber to capture up to (3) geo-tagged images and submit the report. In three easy steps, Hughes App subscribers can report an obstacle on the fly in a matter of seconds. (1. Open the App 2. Select Report an Obstacle. When prompted, select the affected procedure & use the geo-referencing camera & submit.)

The Hughes App will support the following reports from our subscribers.
• Report an Obstacle
• Report Navigation Data Issue
• Report a Chart Change
• Report a Safety or Security Issue – Directly or Anonymously (Hughes will not have visibility on the contributor of anonymous reporting)
• Request an Instrument Approach
• Request a Survey
• Request Flight Inspection
• Request a Heliport Inspection

The Hughes App features two-way communication (except in anonymous reporting) so subscribers can be assured of feedback. The Hughes App will also provide push notifications to subscribers, with timely notifications of safety of flight concerns such as NOTAM issuance. Using survey feature, the Hughes App, customers can complete a survey and provide valued feedback at any time, or periodically be asked to participate in a specific survey.

Aside from public weather feeds, Hughes will be providing weather and camera images to Hughes Subscribers from Hughes network of automated weather stations. Hughes can provide an automated weather station to your airport/heliport. Contact Hughes to find out more.

Hi Stefani, Thanks for your feedback, we are improving the quality of the application with every update we would recommend you to update the application to the latest version for the best experience. Please share more detail on why you found the app expensive, wherein we don't have a payment system integrated 😅😅 Did you even use the app?
