Very complete aviation navigation app. Use it all the time for international navigation, flying Helicopters. The only gripe I would have that, at times it's a bit counter intuitive and requires frequent revision of the manual - but that's probably a result of it's completeness.

With open source maps, load-your-own ERSA & not CASA certified, it used to be a cheap & cheerful VFR companion. But with each update (all support to EU & USA) it becomes ever more troublesome. For downunder, add all the wierd terminology to mesmerizing and ballooning array of controls, I'm sad to say it is fast becoming a liability in the cockpit.

You can use it forever, but without new features and data update.. Sorry for trouble. We changed our monetary strategy. We had to make this decision: Either we stop developing and supporting FIF, or we'll have to switch to an annual subscription. It takes a lot of time to develop new parts of the application and maintain the navigation database.

What's new

- Kyrgyzstan is in the nav database again.
- User can delete his virtual radar data at our server. Menu / App settings / Preferences, Virtual radar / Delete all...
- Internal changes
- Removed some bugs
- Updated Italian and Czech version. Thanks to Marco.
