Latest Addition to Tools Section on FltPlan Go for iPad: Cloud Tops

By tapping on the Tools icon on the left side of FltPlan Go, you can find many valuable features that will make your in-flight experience easier and safer. The latest addition to this list is FltPlan’s new Cloud Tops.

Cloud Tops is a sight level that works using the camera on your iPad FltPlan Go app. Once your level is aligned and locked, Cloud Tops will allow you to set your Distance in nautical miles to the clouds, compensating for curvature of the earth. Distances will display in green when flying above the clouds, in red if headed into or below the clouds, and in orange when close to the clouds.

For directions on using Cloud Tops, click here.

FltPlan Go Now Connects with Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro

Jeppesen Mobile FD ProIn our last FltBrief, we announced that FltPlan Go for iPad integrates with the Jeppesen Mobile FD Version 2.7. Now, FltPlan Go also works with Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro.

Because many Part 135 operators and corporate pilots use Jeppesen charts versus NOS charts, we have made it so your FltPlan route can be transferred directly to your Jeppesen Mobile app. This offers you the best of both worlds. With FltPlan you get all of the features you’ve come to depend upon, and with Jeppesen you get high quality charts. Now there is no need to copy and paste a route from FltPlan to Jesppesen or to manually type it in.

For written instructions on how to transfer from FltPlan Go to Jeppesen Mobile FD, click here. You can also view our Jeppesen Mobile FD Integration support video for more information.
