FlightKit is an all-in-one tool for general aviation. It includes all VFR sectional and TAC charts with sophisticated overlays for airport/navaid info, route planning, and airspace. A/FD and plates are available for airports. Charts are cached locally for offline use, and plates are cached after they're viewed. A drop-down HUD shows current speed, heading, and altitude along with a customizable altitude history graph and vectors to the three nearest VORs. Switch the chart into 3D mode to visualize restricted airspace in three dimensions.
FlightKit is free to download and includes a 15 day subscription. Additional subscriptions may be purchased in the app.
What's New in Version 1.2
- Charts now use the full resolution of the Retina Display on new iPads
- Stability fixes
- New CIFP database
- Updated charts
- Fixed a bug which would prevent weather from loading upon opening a chart
App works great! Took about 30 minutes to really get a handle on the UI, but the tracking is good, and the interface is nice. On the ipad, flying at night the screen is too bright, even on the lowest setting I find.
Not sure exactly how to extract the GPS files, but the histogram for altitude is nice. I agree with the other review that distance to target would be nice, so that you do not need to continually measure. Also it would be nice if the sectional transition was seamless, and not a separate page.
Our of date. Any plans to Update?
I just downloaded this app today. February 8, 2017. The last review appears to be 2013 and I confirmed after downloading the app that 2013 appears to be the last time the app and charts in it or updated. Thank goodness I did not pay for this app as it would be completely useless. It looks like an extremely helpful app for pilots. If there are plans to update it, I would gladly subscribe. Please let us know if there are any plans to update the app to make it current with latest iOS standards as well as the most recent sectional charts.
Very good! Used it while ferrying a light sport almost 1000nm. I like the track up navigation with a DG superimposed on the airplane. Gps capture is fast and your position on the sectional is super accurate. Wish list: On direct function to an airport it'd be great to have distance and ete to destination also displayed on the hud. Seamless transitioning to downloaded charts would make it perfect. I will keep subscribing.
