Now have the POH performance data for your Cessna T182T airplane ready at your fingertips for your next flight.
Data from the POH for a Cessna T182T (Skylane TC) have been entered into this program for quick calculations and look up for flight planning, with a Dec 2007 POH referenced.
This program should be used for reference only. When in doubt, refer to the official documentation that came with your aircraft.
"I personally use several of the PunkStar Studio iPhone/iPod applications. Some, like the Cold Air Calculator, are incredibly useful for even the most advanced pilot, while others, like the Hold Pattern Calculator, are perfect for demonstrations with my students (who are thrilled when they see it for the first time). I'm a loyal customer/user of several of the PunkStar Studio apps (even non-aviation related) and look forward to their future releases. I highly recommend their products to all aviators, from the professional airline pilot and flight instructor to the casual pilot."

**** HAVE YOUR PLANE POH MADE FOR YOU ****
It doesn't matter how common, or obscure your plane is, if you want it's performance data turned into an iPhone/iPod app like this one we're happy to do it for you.
All we need is the pages scanned/emailed/snail-mailed to us that contains the performance charts and the weight and balance calculations. That's it.
What's New in Version 1.7
Top Cruise altitude adjusted to 20,000 feet.
It is very disappointing that the Cruise Data tables are ONLY for 65% power and no other typical settings. That greatly reduces the usefulness as a substitute for a paper POH. It would also be a handy addition to put sections in for Normal and Emergency Procedures.
As useful as this this app is, it is crazy that they don't "finish" it as an actual in-flight reference for the T182. It is more of a demo to show what you CAN do with an iPhone app. Somebody should take this concept and complete it because in theory it would be very useful.
The worst iPhone app I have purchased
I'm not ordinarily in the habit of writing reviews but I found this application so bad that I am compelled to. In short, if it was free, it's still worthless. I've been impressed with many of the applications available for the iPhone, but this is definitely not one of them. It's incomplete, poorly organized, falls far short of even a quick reference guide, and appears to have been written by someone who knows very little about safely preparing for and conducting flight. As an FAA-certified flight instructor, don't bother, don't use it and don't trust it.
