Computation of wind components (head- or tail- / crosswind left/right) in knots for wind-direction and -speed on a given runway.
Decoding of runway report (8-digit-code) found in METAR aeronautical weather reports for adverse runway conditions.
NEW: Decoding of Turbulence and Icing-Codes.
Get TAF- and METAR-Data directly from National Weather Service (NWS). Select airport from list of more than 6000 airports.
Hold Over Time
Shows hold over time-guidelines for commonly used de-icing fluid types (I-IV) according to selected weather conditions.
Meter Flight Levels (New design)
Shows flight level conversion table: Meters (STD) to Feet (STD) for China.
Build your own height-conversion-table from meters (QFE) to feet (QNH).
Fuel Calculations (New module!)
Calculate fuel uplift-, fueling- or fuel check-data and convert different units.
Please note: All data is for information only and not for operational use.
For some reason a buggy 4.3.2-Version was released. This update should fix these problems.
Ratings and Reviews
Good app, but unable to change the fuel density for fuel calculations.
GREAT for international airline pilot
As an international airline pilot, I have used the Feet/Meters conversion in Russian airspace, and the Xwind calculator numerous times. The Runway Report decoder has been useful on occasion to decode SNOWTAM and runway braking. The De-ice/Anti-ice calculator, although not strictly legal to use by airline procedure, would be a great tool for cross-checking Holdover time.
These features alone would rate 5 stars and in addition, PToolbox can update airport weather & forecast via WIFI. As a free app., it is a service to the pilot community. THANKS!!
Future considerations --- pls include Feet/Meters conversion for Chinese Airspace.
A very professional app
This app has the friction coefficients correct for all the countries in the world. I really like this app because it got a lot of little details worked into it, that are very useful.
Thanks a lot. I will send an email if I got an idea how to improve the programm, but got no idea rwhat there could be done better..
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
