This application is a fantastic pilot aid. However, it is not a replacement for a full pre-flight briefing. Pilots should always check with a flight service briefer, prior to flight, to obtain the latest NOTAMS and TFRs.
The TFR data of this application only covers the United States and United States territories. This application is available worldwide for any international pilot planning to fly to or transit United States airspace.
- iPhone/iPodTouch OS 2.0 or later
- Active Internet network connection.
*note: The FAA briefly published incorrect, blank map data. Version 1.12 will attempt to detect such incorrect FAA data in the future.
What's New in Version 1.12
Blank TFR map -- FAA's published an incorrect, blank tfr map for a brief period of time. Since this application relies directly on FAA data, the blank map was displayed in TFRs. This update attempts to detect if FAA is incorrectly returning a blank map and alert the user.
It delivers exactly what it claims, a quick and easy way to check for tfrs. I used to use have to sit down at the computer 10-15 times a day to check tfrs (airspace here gets a ton of vip tfrs) for our flights. Now I can check as I walk out to our plane.
Quick and useful
load up app and quick view of tfr map shows me if I have any for my route. cant get quicker than that
Good potential, but buggy
A very useful app, but it is quite buggy. It crashes often when navigating between screens. Also, the sectional showing a TFR is very pixelated, making it impossible to read.
