Approach Systems Corporation is disclosing details of 'Approach
EasyTaxi,' a free download of geo synchronized location of aircraft
on all NACO Airport Diagrams.
Approach is making this application free (for a limited time) in
the spirit assisting the FAAs current effort to prevent runway
incursions. With Approach EasyTaxi, the company hopes that will be
absolutely no reason to line up on the wrong runway or
inadvertently cross a runway while taxiing.
Approach EasyTaxi is free and runs on any Windows based
platform. Additionally, beginning with the May 2009 release,
EasyTaxi free moving map software we will include airport diagrams
for all airports that have a NACO airport diagrams (692 airports).
Approach EasyTaxi allows the real time display of aircraft position
on each NACO airport diagram. Approach EASYTAXI works with all
Microsoft based platforms.
Approach EasyTaxi uses detailed NACO database to dynamically
render maps of all US airport diagrams and through the use of GPS
technology show pilots their position on the airport surface. Now,
when landing at an unfamiliar airport and being given confusing
ground instructions you no longer have to ask for a "progressive."
You'll know exactly where you are on the airport surface, greatly
reducing the possibility of crossing a runway.
Approach EasyTaxi is plug & play; the user does not need to
"calibrate" any diagram. Calibration for all airport diagrams has
already been performed by Approach. Approach EASYTAXI can interface
to all standard GPS devices and virtual GPS connections. The cost
of Approach EASYTAXI is free, zero, nada, zilch! Approach provides
a new updates for changes every 28 days.
Approach APIC provided modern glass cockpit technology on low
cost Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) platforms based on Microsoft
XP, VISTA and Windows Mobile based technologies.
