Why only these 29? Because these are the aircraft that I am currently flying. As I get requests to add others I am doing that. Also, these are some of the most popular GA airplanes.

How it works
-------------
1. Select an aircraft
- 29 are available

2. Select an airport
- The App comes with a worldwide airport database.
- Runway information is available only for US airports

3. Enter conditions
- Wind, temperature, pressure altitude, weight and runways
- US runway information is filled automatically or can be entered, there is also an option to define default runways on the Options tab

4. Check the results

Real time METARs for weather
------------------------------
If the airport has a METAR station the current weather can be obtained by touching the "Get WX" button
Internet access is required to get the weather

Options Tab
------------
You can select a default Airplane and Airport to be loaded at startup.
Weather can also be set to load automatically at startup.
Measurement units for Wind speed, temperature, Distance and Weight can be set on the Options Tab.

As Always
----------
Make sure that any Takeoff and Landing calculations are verified using the manufacturer's approved flight manual or POH.

Please Note
-------------
I have tested these calculations and believe them to be reasonable. However I want to emphasize the need to verify them. I have had some experience building other software that uses METAR data for input. One thing that you may not realize is that METAR data may be entered by hand. That means that it is possible that there could be typos or simply some added information that is not expected by the software. This added information could cause unpredictable results and the user should be alert to this possibility.

About CFI Tools

I'm a Pilot and a CFI. I build these iPhone apps and other software for my own use.

Some other pilots saw them and said "Hey you should sell those".

So here they are for sale. I hope you enjoy them. Any suggestions for improvement or new apps are always welcomed. Have a good flight.
