All main screens (5 portrait and 5 landscape could easily be customized. Pilot can choose from around 100 values to display. Example:
- Altitude GPS or barometric
- Ground speed
- Vertical speed
- DME to next point / destination
- Estimated time to next point / destination
- Time since departure
- Stop watch
Displayed information could be customized too depending of users preferences (VFR, IFR or both) and zoom level. The more you zoom IN, the more detail, information, waypoints,.. you see
The integrated logbook, allows recording:
- Duration since departure time
- Departure and arrival time
- Departure and arrival airport
- Flight track (it is possible to export it as .kml or .gpx and to replay it)
- Used aircraft
- Pilot(s) and copilots in charge
- Distance, average speed, maximum speed
Navigation data available from open source database are updated according AIRAC cycles.
Charts and elevation dta
Free charts and elevation data are available for most of countries and could be imported directly via the application store.
Other charts could be created and imported by the pilot itself or made on request available as commercial service.
Pilots could select the most appropriate charts: free open source charts as well as commercial charts as ICAO, Cartabossy, SkyVector, FAA sectional and terminal charts…
