John Ewing has written a post for his Aviation Mentor blog where he has reviewed or mentioned a few new aviation iPad/iPhone applications. These new apps include:
AirWx. A handy app for getting a quick view of an area’s weather before getting an official weather briefing. There is no recurring subscription price and the cost is just US$10. In other words, buy once and use forever.
CFITools Preflight Wx. This integrated tool will help you with several important pre-flight planning tasks, namely weather, runway lengths and takeoff/landing performance for various types of aircraft. For example: Just enter a departure airport for a graphic representation of the winds along with the airport’s runways plus a headwind and crosswind component for these runways. The app will also provide a historical plotting of altimeter, ceiling, dew point, visibility and winds – all for only US$30.
Radio Navigation Trainer. This final app is great for both student pilots who are still trying to master VOR and NDB navigation or any pilot who spends a considerable amount of time staring at glass panels as the app will display two navaids of your choice. The price is only US$2.
John ended his post by asking readers to comment about their favorite aviation iPad/iPhone apps and we invite you to do the same – especially about any aviation iPad/iPhone app specifically meant for the UK.
