We’re tired of lugging around big green AF/Ds and having to hit the FBO flight planning room for the preflight intelligence we need. A mobile phone (i.e. iPhone) is capable of providing access to the information we need while remaining stylish and light weight.
We figured that we need to pack ForeFlight iPhone Edition with data covering more than 220 countries, 25,000 landing facilities, 9,000 FBOs, 11,000 transportation providers, and more. We also figured that data needed to be refreshed every 28 days and be of the highest quality possible (not “scraped“). That would be pretty cool. Maybe we’d even save a few trees in the process.
Well, we’ve done it, and it’s coming soon to an iPhone near you. You’ll even be able to get data on Antarctica, if you’re thinking of flying your trusty 152 up there. Stay tuned.
