Pilot Wiz has been designed by GA pilots for GA pilots. It provides all of the basic conversions , calculations and key functions to keep you ﬂying safely.
It has most of the wizz wheel (E6B or CRP-1) functions. And more importantly provides Weight and Balance, Fuel calculations, Holding Patterns, Crosswinds, Weather Decoding and Route Planning. It can also operate in most international units.
What's New in Version 1.0.6
Weight & Balance
Added display for CG & %MAC for Zero Fuel Weight, Added Max Zero Fuel Weight, Added display of usable weight within zero fuel weight limits. Added Zero Fuel magenta dot.
Change the update methods. It will now load the weather the first time the page is opened only. It will then require a Refresh to re-load the data. All loading is now done faster by parallel loading. The display will also dynamically indicate how old the data is. Also refined definitions of VFR/MVFR etc. added Pressure Altitude/Density Altitude and Elevation and many other improvements.
Also added airport information, show in Google maps and nearby stations. Also updated timezone information.
Remember last page
Remembers the last page/section it was running when it was last closed and opens it again on starting.
NEW in the PRO version:
Route Plan with GPS CDI All new route planning with 70,000 NavAids/Airway Intersections and airports, automatic distance and angle calculations and also a full GPS CDI with bearing and OBS modes, with direct to and plan leg selection.
Lateral w&b is now supported directly by linking a lateral w&b aircraft to its longitude counterpart. (See Aircraft examples)
** Fixes problems with Route plans being duplicated **
First Class App!!!!
For starters, I can't believe this app is free. I'm a commercial helicopter pilot in the Gulf of Mexico and use this app numerous times each day for weight & balance computations, especially since it shows a graphical cg envelope. Once you set up all the aircraft that you fly in the aircraft section, the rest is a piece of cake. This app is also great for quick calculations of fuel load and indurance. I highly recommend this app to any pilot at any level. This is a great tool to add to your cockpit tool bag. Grab this app while it is FREE!!!!
Froze when ISO 8.02 installed
Have been using and recommending this app for several years but since recently updated to ISO 8.02 it is not working. It is frozen on the last page I viewed. Please update the app so it works with the new ISO. When it was working I would give it 5 stars. It I takes a little work getting aircraft info in to use the W/B feature but once entered it is easy to use. I have other apps that do W&B but I used other features in PilotWiz the conversion tables because they were quick, easy and convenient to use.
Lots of handy pilot stuff
Very useful to have the calculations and quick log together. I don't think I'll ever use the holding or the crosswind functions but the weight & balance and weather functions are something I will use often. Great app, and very good manual to help set up the functions.
