FltPlan Go IconFltPlan Go Apptitude: This Week’s Tip from the FltPlan Tech Team

FltPlan Go BindersThe featured app function in this week’s FltPlan Go Apptitude is the Binders feature. We are finding that many pilots are not familiar with all the ways the Binders can make your trip easier.

The Binder feature comes with a pre-loaded binder named Documents. This is where you find any documents you’ve downloaded from the Downloads - Documents section. You can add personalized documents, i.e., V-Speeds for your aircraft, to this tab by uploading them to your account and downloading them to your iPad.

You can create a binder from the Binders section or right from the Airports page (using the folder icon on the top right) and add the Airport diagram, Approaches, Arrivals, etc. Then go into that binder and add your weather for the route, your NavLog, and A/FD.

Now that you have all those documents in one place, you can toggle between them.

What’s Up in the HUD?

FltPlan's HUD feature, located in the Maps section of the FltPlan Go App, has new additions. One is the ETE (Estimated Time Enroute) data field. You can now find the ETE to the next fix on your route and to your destination. In addition, the HUD feature factors in different points along a SID/STAR routing. Also, when flying over a waypoint, the HUD auto-switches to the next waypoint along your route. When passengers ask, “How much longer?” the answer is right there in the HUD.

The HUD can be customized as well. If there are any data fields you do not want to be displayed on the HUD, you can interchange them with different data fields. Tap on the data field you would like to replace and a drop-down box will appear with a list of options (Lat / Long, Ground Speed, Altitude, etc.) that you can display on the HUD. Tap on the option you want and the data field you chose will replace what was previously displayed on the HUD.
