Flight Guide Updates iEFB APP To v4.0

Offers Advanced Flight Planning Option

Flight Guide has rolled out its upgraded iEFB v4.0, offering a brand new Flight Planning option that allows operators to quickly and easily create a Flight Plan on any of the apps high resolution Seamless Charts. Using "Your Flight Plan," waypoints can be created by either typing in an airport identifier or by using the "One Touch" add, remove and insert waypoint feature. Intersections and navaids can also be quickly located, or search for nearest airports to add to the flight plan without ever leaving the chart. Selecting the "Flight Planner" main menu page allows the user to reorganize waypoints, auto reverse the flight plan, customize airplane profiles, file a flight plan and more. Flight Plan out of view? The one touch "Display Route" icon allows the entire route to be viewed instantly.

With Flight Guide's "PLUS" plans, Instrument Approaches and/or Flight Guide Airport Diagrams can be overlaid on the Seamless Charts in geo-referenced location. Simply zoom in on the desired airport icon, using Apple’s standard “pan, pinch & drag” interface and watch as the entire Flight Guide Airport Diagram comes into view without ever having to leave the chart. With iEFB’s Moving Map capability, the aircraft’s geo-referenced location is displayed on both the chart and the over-laying Flight Guide Airport Diagram. To take it a step further, a semi-transparent IFR instrument approach, geo-referenced, can be presented on a Low or High Enroute, Sectional or WAC chart.

Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 also includes a "Track Up" feature, allowing users to manually toggle between either "North up" or "Track Up" depending on the desired display. Charts can be set to default to "Track Up."

The upgraded version has also added the ability to alert and display Air Traffic graphically, TCAS-like, using the ZAON PCAS XRX connected to Flight Guide's FLY-Wi GPS. Traffic shows on Flight Guide iEFB's Seamless Charts with Moving Map, displaying standard TCAS I symbols. Flight Guide iEFB will identify the location, distance, vertical separation and heading of any aircraft within the traffic system range. Pilots will have immediate situational awareness of traffic that they can easily track. Flight Guide iEFB's traffic feature is included in the Flight Guide iEFB v4.0 update and available FREE with all Flight Guide iEFB subscription data plans.

In addition to annual data plans, monthly data plans are also available and can be purchased through the Flight Guide iEFB App itself. Simply download iEFB from the Apple App store onto your iPad and purchase a monthly plan.
