Ratings and Reviews
We were hoping this app would assist us in our transition to EFBs and reduce staff retraining being a similar interface to FP3000. Unfortunately there are a number of differences from FP3000 that have caused us to migrate. Fuel figures are often quite different to FP3000 despite the same detailed data being entered. Some of these errors can be explained by 5000 requesting a different GRIB forecast, others seem to be rounding errors, but not all can be accounted for. It has tried to keep the same interface, but reliance on the apple keyboard in some areas, eg segment detail wind, or the lack there of in others, eg flight level make it painful to use. Can't click ok after entering winds without hiding the keyboard, can't quickly change flight levels without hitting + 1000 times. Pro is overpriced while so clunky and clumsy. Disappointing all round
Great to see this on IOS. Easy to use and great for planning
I can click on it, it flashes open for a moment then is shuts down. Rubbish.
