If you’re a professional pilot looking for a convenient way of accessing runway codes and flight calculators then you’ll definitely want to keep @Flight handy on your iPhone and iPad before you next take off.
I don’t pretend to know the first thing about aviation but I can definitely say with some confidence that the features within this app seem to all run very smoothly; I haven’t come across anything but a highly functional set of tools so I’m very impressed overall.
What we’ve got here is a great collection of tools that professional pilots can use to accurately calculate crosswinds, and head / tailwind properties in knots or meters per second, as well as wind direction which can be viewed in magnetic or true directions.
Within the app you can establish your own wind speed limits based on your aircraft’s specifications, and you can even make corrections for altitude and cold temperatures down to -50C.
Handy wind calculations
Decode MOTNE Reports
@Flight is capable of decoding TAF turbulence and icing reports in 6-digit format, and it provides support for MOTNE runway reports so that you can easily decode and interpret 8-digit runway reports (including Russian friction coefficients).
I really like what I’ve seen of this app so far, so if you’re a pilot who relies on his or her iOS device for this kind of data then I really think you will find @Flight to be an invaluable addition to your cockpit.
