Note: Always cross check with your current AFD. Updates will be issued frequently (imported directly from the FAA database), but there is no guarantee of up-to-date information. This app does NOT allow you to listen to frequencies - a scanner or transceiver is required to listen to the frequencies listed. If you experience any problems, please e-mail me BEFORE posting a bad review!

FlightIntel does not use the obnoxious banner ads to generate revenue and never will. Also, providing data updates every 4-8 weeks takes a considerable time and efforts. Please show your appreciation by donating generously. Help me make FlightIntel one of the best in its class.
The AeroNav products (TPP PDF charts and A/FD PDF pages) are only available after making a donation. This is because due to recent policy change by AeroNav, I have to pay for the DVD to get access to the important metadata file. Please consider donating at one or both levels to help me continue working on this app.

(1) Voice vertical guidance into any airport. This helps flying consistent & safer short field VFR approaches into runways with no vertical guidance.
(2) "Flight Analysis" to review the approach precision and improve from feedback on every flight.
How does it work? (reference 1st App Screenshot)
* Connect Phone audio to headset, adjust audio volume
* Select desired approach
* Identify "Green Arrow" in HSI and turn aircraft to Top of Descent. (67 deg)
* Localizer bar is "red" indicating that loc is past the right limit.
* Localizer will turn "yellow" once in range
* "White Arrow" in HSI is the direction of touchdown point. (60 deg)
* "Yellow Arrow" in HSI is the direction of final approach course. (37 deg)
* Descent to "TOD altitude" (top of descent) using aircraft altimeter as reference
* Now a GREEN glide slope bar will appear and be centered
* As we approach the TOD and the synthetic ILS GP in "yellow" is coming down
* YELLOW ILS glide slope and the GREEN TOD glide slope will merge at TOD
* Passing the TOD turn to the final approach course shown as "yellow" arrow
* Descent with the YELLOW ILS glide slope
* Voice will announce: "50 up", "Center", "Down 100" etc....
* Menu: "Request Flight Analysis" after landing, suggest connecting via wifi
* Examples and details at: http://www.reuter-family.com/gpsils/GPSILS_Details.pdf. Thank You to Timothy Nathan
Watch the example video of on an actual ILS: www.youtube.com/watch?v=85AdUUd-kZw
We are approaching the localiser on a 125 heading and a TOD altitude of 1200ft. We are about 60 ft too low. The Green, White and Yellow arrows show the direction to the TOD point, the touchdown zone and the approach course respectively.
As the localizer comes in we turn to 207 for the intercept.
As we approach the TOD the Green and Yellow GP merge. The green arrow swings around to the left indicating that we pass TOD on the right.
The decent with the GP starts. The white arrow is now hidden behind the yellow arrow. The TOD is now behind us and hence the green arrow is pointing to our 6 o' clock position.
The voice announcement are suppressed. However you can see the announcements in the upper left of the phone screen. "Up 80" for example. The app shows an altitude of 510 ft at touchdown. According to the charts the runway is at 517 ft.
Once we pass the touchdown zone the white arrow moves to the 6 o'clock position.
Note, we used an external Bluetooth GPS on the glare shield with a 5 Hz update frequency. Any change in color of the "accuracy" field indicates a new GPS data point. CAUTION, usage of the internal phone GPS may materially reduce the accuracy.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqyAXyufBK8&feature=youtu.be shows a good match between GPS and ILS. At 1000 ft agl the tower switches the approach from circle to land to straight in. Compare the two glide slopes.

The app asks for the pilots e-mail address. The address is attached to log files and makes it possible to send comments back. Privacy is ensured. Upload/download of data may best be done when connected to internet via wifi. The data stays private.
To add more approaches drop me an e-mail or press the request button on the phone. 37,000 approaches can be down loaded via "Menu->Download Approaches".

The Air Safety Institute (ASI) Flight Risk Evaluator is designed to help pilots take a more systematic approach to those gray areas of go / no-go decisions. Take a few minutes to think about your own approach to risk management. Then, when you move on to the app, remember that its guidance is meant to be general; it’s your assessment of the situation that counts. Be realistic about your skills and proficiency. If you feel uncomfortable about something the program says is safe, always trust your own judgment and err on the side of caution.
• Provides an objective, real-time, and specific report on the risk involved with your next flight.
• Helps you make better choices about flight risk
• A great learning tool for new pilots in targeting the areas of greatest risk for your flight
• Helps craft your own personal minimums
• Tells you why a particular flight area may be too risky for your experience level
• Uses your current and total flight experience to evaluate your risk on any flight
• Automatically downloads real-time airport weather and runway lengths and configurations
• Offline use allows you to manually input any variables you choose to determine what the risks are if conditions change
• Stores your flight time and experience
• Stores multiple aircraft profiles for use with flying clubs or FBOs
In the real world of flying it can be tough to make calls about what’s safe and what isn’t. Airline and corporate pilots have rules that clearly spell out how to deal with sticky situations, but for the most part general aviation (GA) pilots are left to their own judgment. And that’s a good thing—but it doesn’t mean we always have to go it alone.
It sounds simple in theory…but out in the real world it’s not always easy to decide whether a given flight is safe or not. In some cases one particular factor may be marginal while everything else is good, while in other cases there can be a multitude of variables involved, and it can be hard to decide exactly how much weight to give each of them. Sometimes things look OK to start with, but then change en route. That’s when the calls can get really tough—and you need to choose carefully because the stakes can be high.
GA pilots prefer more flexibility when it comes to risk—more like guidelines than actual rules. Thing is, for guidelines to work you need to have good judgment …and a good choice for one pilot might be a really bad choice for another. The ASI Flight Risk Evaluator is a step to help you determine which choice is best for you.
