If you’re a pilot who is looking for an all-in-one point of reference for important information on your iPhone and iPad then you’ll almost definitely want to take Pilot’s Toolbox for a spin as it should provide you with just about everything you need.
I’m not a pilot and don’t know the first thing about flying so I can’t really say whether or not this app is entirely comprehensive in its coverage of the topic, but I’m very impressed with the overall layout and presentation of the features, all of which seem to run very smoothly from what I’ve seen so far.
This must-have pilot’s companion app has been designed to help you quickly and easily calculate wind conditions with headwinds, tailwinds, crosswinds, and more, while also providing you with access to detailed runway reports with a METAR eight-digit code for adverse conditions.
Pilot’s Toolbox also delivers TAF and METAR reports from the National Weather Service, which should be very handy when you’re looking to gauge the conditions before heading out onto the runway for a day of flying.

Easy Conversion of Metrics
What’s more, with this flying app at your disposal you’ll also have full access to the guidelines detailing hold over times for common de-icing fluid types based on various weather conditions; especially essential for severely cold weather.
Pilot’s Toolbox makes it incredibly easy to convert from metric to imperial systems, and you’ll even find that it includes tables for conversions between Russian and Chinese altitude metrics, which I personally think is a great feature.
