Best flight planning and navigation tool
I have been using RunwayHD for well over a year, and during that time have used it as my primary navigation tool when touring the UK. It is easy to use, and also puts all of the information you need for flight planning and navigation in one easy application. I believe it is the best package available on the market, particularly for the General Aviation community. When I demonstrate it's capabilities to friends and students they are often amazed, and few resist the urge to buy it!
A great flying app
I have been using RunwayHD for about 3 years now and It makes navigating a doddle. Having the OS50 charts in the lower level is very useful especially if your curious to know the name of some small village or country estate your flying over. Free flight plan filings via Rocket route seems to work well on the few occasions I've had to file one. I know there are other good flying apps out there but I'm very happy with RunwayHD.
A must have, I can't be without RunwayHD especially in the summer season when I'm bouncing around the UK. It frees up capacity so I can fly safely and interact with my passengers. So if you're trying to avoid airspace or navigate through it RunwayHD is highly recommended.
