FltPlan Completes Rapid Decompression Testing for Android Tablets

FltPlan recently completed the Federal Aviation Administration's required rapid decompression testing for Android tablets. The tests were successful, showing the Android’s integrity in the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure. Tests were conducted to an altitude of 51,000. This means your Android tablet can be FAA-approved for in-flight use.

Android Icon Testing was performed on four different Android tablets made by two different manufacturers: Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab, and ASUS MeMO. View the testing video here.

FltPlan will be making these test results available, so FltPlan users can use it to become certified by the FAA to use android devices in their aircraft. Last week we announced that FltPlan Go is available on the Android. This great tool allows you to keep FltPlan at your fingertips in-flight and offline. Android FltPlan Go’s latest version includes:
