Why Get Locked in to One ADS-B Unit?

iPad FltPlan Go works with a variety of ADS-B Receivers.

FltPlan Go for iPad supports ADS-B, and we give you the freedom to choose which receiver you’ll use. Our iPad FltPlan Go app currently works with four different ADS-B units: Sagetech Clarity, Dual XGPS170, Flight Data System's Pathfinder, and the SkyRadar DX. We will be adding more receivers to the list in the future.

Where some apps may lock you into using one brand of ADS-B receiver, FltPlan allows you to select your own, based on your needs and your price range. Conversely, if you decide to use an app other than FltPlan Go (we can’t imagine why you would), you’re not stuck with an unusable receiver that you paid hundreds of dollars for.

When you use ADS-B in conjunction with FltPlan Go, you get access to NEXRAD, METARSs, TAFs, NOTAMS, and PIREPs.

As always, FltPlan Go is free. After all, you’re not getting free weather if you’re paying for a subscription to your app. To download the free FltPlan Go app, visit the iTunes App Store and search for FltPlan.

New Enhancement: FBO Addresses Displayed on Multi-Leg PAX Briefing

FltPlan’s Multi-Leg Pax Briefing now includes FBO addresses and phone numbers. This information has already been displayed on the Single-Leg Pax Briefing for some time. This can be a great help in locating some of those hard to find locations at the airport. It’s as simple as selecting your departure and arrival FBO.

To use the PAX Briefing go to Main Menu > Flight Planning > PAX Briefing. From there you can select Single or Multi-Leg.
