Cessna iFlite

Hilton Software LLC
Cessna iFlite is an iPad application and requires a $139.95 annual subscription for full functionality. The initial purchase of 99c enables you to view A/FD and AOPA Directory information, to purchase and view Cessna POHs, and to have full access to the E6B. Viewing your aircraft's location on an approach chart requires a ChartData subscription with Seattle Avionics (not required to view charts or for SmartTaxi).

What's new in version 6.0.0.0
Another significant update introducing the new amazing features found in WingX Pro7 including:

- IAP Routing - add an Instrument Approach Procedure to your route and Cessna iFlite automatically inserts all the IAP points to your route
- Pebble Watch integration - vibration altitude alerts and perfect sunlight readability are just two great things about this wearable technology.

Cessna iFlite integrates with Cessna Connect and includes Weight and Balance, Performance Calculations, and POHs for in-production single-engine Cessna aircraft.
Our verdict: Meh!
  • Cessna iFlite is a poorly rated app (2-star).
