A Dubai company is putting the final touches on flightevolution, a new app for laptops and mobile devices that claims to improve flight planning especially on international flights, integrating the planning with weather and in-flight situational awareness.

Built with Mobile-First Infrastructure, flightevolution sits in the user’s pocket. Available anywhere around the globe, it allows pilots and dispatchers to plan, review, and execute missions, with or without a data connection.

It also can be used in flight and provides access to flight plans, weather, charts, procedures, and global position on a high-definition moving map, as well as synthetic vision technology. Hazards, special events, and restricted areas are shown. A typical flight plan is claimed to run in less than five seconds, and the company said "the mapping engine renders high-definition graphics without delays, pixilation, or frustration."

The system allows users to run optimized routes based on time, speed, and ride quality; users also can select routes from a route catalog. It integrates graphical manipulation of routes (rubber-band routing), and worldwide weather and weather depictions into the flight planning process; these are available throughout the flight. Advanced features such as drift down calculations, ETOPS, runway analysis, weight and balance, and reclearances are expected to be available soon.

Users can view airport information, vendor information, services, and pricing within the web or mobile app. UAS is exhibiting at Booth 2682 at the National Business Aviation Association's Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
