FltPlan.com's New FltPlan Go iPad App to be Demonstrated at Air Venture 2013
FltPlan.com will be launching a new version of our free iPad app in August named FltPlan Go.
FltPlan Go will be demonstrated at the EAA show in Oshkosh July 29-Aug. 4th.
Our FltPlan Go iPad app has many new enhancements with an easy-to-use interface. Some of the features include:
Rubber banding for flight planning
Ability to create and edit routes offline
ADS-B and XM - WX capabilities
Helicopter Routes, TAC Charts, SUAs for offline use
Geo-Referenced Airport Charts (in addition to Geo-referenced Charts)
Multiple Binders for easy access to the info you need, all in one location
Ability to save notes and highlights on multiple approach charts
All these features will work online and offline
The best part is that this new app integrates with our website (and our other mobile devices) for one-stop flight planning. FltPlan Go also includes our current eLogbook, Weight & Balance, and PDC features.
Stop by Booths #2002 and #2003 to see the newly enhanced app. We'll also keep you posted in FltBrief.

New Feature: Helicopter Route Charts
FltPlan.com now offers Helicopter Route Charts on the website. You can find them by clicking on the Charts and Maps link on the log-in page or on the left side of the Main Menu page, then entering your airport pair in Sectionals with TFRs and Weather. Check off Helicopter Routes in the list of available map layers. You can also access the Helicopter Routes from the links on the NavLog.
Click to View
Helicopter Route charts depict current aeronautical information useful to helicopter pilots navigating in areas with high concentrations of helicopter activity. Information depicted includes helicopter routes, four classes of heliports with associated frequency and lighting capabilities, NAVAIDS, and obstructions. In addition, pictorial symbols, roads, and easily-identified geographical features are portrayed.
This feature will be available on our free iPad and Android apps in the near future.
As note, you can also purchase paper Helicopter Route Charts from Store.FltPlan.com
FltPlan.com's Pressure & Density Calculator Now Available on the Web
Our Pressure & Density Altitude Calculator, previously only available on our popular free iPad and Android apps, is now also available on the website. This is an easy to use, professional grade tool for all pilots who need accurate information when calculating Pressure and/or Density altitude.
Our calculator offers a multitude of options and features:
You can enter an altitude in feet or meters, a pressure in inHg or millibars, and a temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius.
This Tool will display ISA for the altitude entered and the ISA deviation for the actual temperature entered.
You can find the Pressure and Density Calculator on our Weather/Notams page. (The link is on the left side of the Main Menu page.)
After several uses, you'll soon find this an indispensable part of your flights. This feature is also available on our iPad, Android, and Blackberry apps.
