Airguide Publications said recently that its popular Flight Guide iEFB iPad application now features georeferenced approach plates and airport diagrams.
Like similar services before it, Flight Guide iEFB has partnered with Seattle Avionics for the service.
What this means for users is that an airplane symbol representing their current position will show up on approach plates and more than 5,000 airport diagrams in real time. The capability allows for unparalleled situational awareness.
Airguide says its service, which can be paired with a WAAS-capable GPS, is even more accurate than most because of its proprietary airport diagrams that are cleaner than the FAA’s.
Flight Guide iEFB is an application that closely mimics the popular Airguide books. It has the added benefit of moving-map charts and approach plates. Annual subscriptions cost between $109 and $319.
Aircraft and Avionics
Frustration-free manuals are now available for the Garmin GTN 650 and 750 panel-mount units.
The Flight Data Systems GT-50 G-meter is now available for certificated aircraft.
To help pilots focus on learning the avionics, Garmin on Nov. 12 launched an interactive online training course for the G5000 integrated flight deck.
