FlightPlanHD - featuring FlightScale

Jeff Cardillo
FlightPlanHD is the iPad version of the aviation super-tool, FlightPlan - Pilot's Toolbox. FlightPlanHD isn't just a port of FlightPlan - iPhone functionality, it has some special tools built in specifically designed for the larger screen format.

FlightScale is built in! FlightScale is a powerful and evolving weight and balance app for the iPad. Rather than just bring over the iPhone's weight and balance tools (that are a bit more limited because of the smaller screen) I integrated the full version of FlightScale right in to FlightPlanHD! For a full list of FlightScale's features, such as the ability to plot non-linear fuel CGs, please read about it on the website or see the FlightScale app in the app store.

The Navigation Log Calculator is a new FlightPlanHD feature that doesn't yet exist in the iPhone version. This screen makes quick work of calculating your VFR navigation log reports.

All of the tools available for the iPhone version have been brought over too, and the larger screen makes these functions more useful than ever! Take a look at the screenshots showing airport data etc.

FlightPlan has lots of functions and a fairly complete list is detailed below, but some specifics may be omitted for space limitations. For more screenshots and information please visit the dedicated website for my aviation software. I always welcome feedback from users and will continue improving the products for you.
