EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedForeFlight upgrade brings new features to iPad
Software publisher ForeFlight this week at EAA AirVenture 2010 announced the immediate availability of “Touch Planning” and “Bring Your Own Procedures” capabilities in its wildly popular flight-planning and in-cockpit application for Apple’s iPad tablet. The company said new touch-planning capabilities in ForeFlight Mobile HD 3.6 allow pilots to tap out flight plans by touching different points on a sectional or IFR en-route chart, move waypoints with their fingertips, and quickly bend routes around weather, military operations areas, and restricted airspace.

“The touch-planning capabilities in ForeFlight Mobile HD exemplify how pilots will interact with flight-planning software now and into the future,” said Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight’s co-founder.

“Planning via gestures and by touch is more natural than planning by keyboard entry. With ForeFlight Mobile HD’s touch planning, building complex cross-country or intercontinental flight plans takes only seconds.”

ForeFlight Mobile HD 3.6 also introduces a new feature the company dubbed “Bring Your Own Procedures” (BYOP), which allows pilots to load their own digital terminal procedures or supplements directly into ForeFlight Mobile HD.

More information on the new software release, touch planning, and BYOP is available on ForeFlight’s blog at http://Blog.ForeFlight.com and on the web at www.ForeFlight.com/byop. Touch planning is on display throughout AirVenture 2010 in Exhibit Hangar D at ForeFlight’s booth, number 4143.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
