Welcome to PPGpS, a Flight Computer for Paramotor, Paraglider, Glider and Ultra Light plane Pilots.
-PPGpS can now display an Airspace overlay on the map.
It is using OpenAir files that can be downloaded from the net and copied in the \PPGpS\airspaces folder.
You may also use the AirspaceMap app to help you download some OpenAir files from various sources easily, and customize these large airspace maps to fit your needs,
and then export them to the PPGpS airspace folder.

PPGpS can display Google or OpenStreetMap maps in connected mode.
Download map files in your smartphone in case you don't have an internet connection during the flight.
Use the integrated PPGpS Offline Map Creator to generate offline maps.
PPGpS provides the altitude, vario, bearing, magnetic compass, acceleration and ground speed.
With just one click on instruments you switch easily between different data modes : instantaneous, average and maximum values.
Altimeter can be set to actual altitude or elevation (QHN, QFE) just by long-pressing on the altimeter.
If your smartphone has a barometric sensor, it could be used to compute a very accurate altitude.
You can use PPGpS Wear companion application to display your instruments on your SmartWatch.
Create waypoints by tapping on the map or by entering their GPS coordinates.
Select a waypoint with one click on the waypoint instrument (WPT).
Rename or remove a waypoint from the contextual menu of the waypoint list.
Follow the displayed route (bearing, estimated travel time and distance).
Prepare your waypoints from Google Earth and import your KML files (PPGpS folder in the phone).
Waypoints may be automatically loaded at startup and saved at the end of the session.
In case your KML file doesn't import well, please send me the file and I will fix it quickly.
*WIND AND SPEEDS HUD:
The average ground speeds are graphically displayed for every azimuth.
The wind direction is displayed (red arrow) and may be reset at any time during the flight.
Home direction and Estimated Travel Time to return home is always displayed (shaded red line).
Computations are done according to the wind for accurate results.
Enable the Live Tracking feature to allow your friends and family to see you live on map ! Go to www.ppgps.info for more details.
Copy OpenAir files in the /ppgps/airspace folder to display airspaces on top of the map
Use my other app AirspaceMap to help you download and customize your openAir files
