IFR Paper Chart Price Increases Coming

Monday, August 29, 2016 @ 8:00 AM

The cost of IFR paper charts is expected to rise significantly in the next few months.  The increase applies specifically to terminal procedures publications (TPP), which include instrument approach procedures (IAP), departure procedures (DP), standard terminal arrivals (STAR), airport diagrams, as well as takeoff, radar, and alternate minimums.

This will not affect the freely-accessible charts available on iFlightPlanner.com or in iFlightPlanner for iPad.  All charts, including VFR Sectionals and Terminal Area Charts (TAC), will continue to be available to all pilots at no cost through iFlightPlanner.

Instrument approaches, SIDs, STARs, airport diagrams and minimums can all be printed from the Documents tab for each airport in the Airport/Facility Directory.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the iFlightPlanner Crew!

iFlightPlanner to Fully Support Bad Elf ADS-B Receivers

Monday, December 21, 2015 @ 8:00 AM

The iFlightPlanner Crew is excited to announce that we will be fully supporting the Bad Elf ADS-B receivers at product launch!

In 2010, Bad Elf brought aviation-grade GPS to the iPad.  The Bad Elf GPS receivers became the best selling Apple approved external GPS accessory providing high performance GPS data to location-based iOS applications.  Now Bad Elf is announcing their affordable ADS-B weather and traffic receiver with support from Kickstarter.

After five years of portable ADS-B receivers being on the market, less than 10% of pilots are flying with real-time, subscription-free weather and traffic in the cockpit.  They cite high price and restricted compatibility as the two main reasons that they have not yet purchased an ADS-B receiver.  

With Bad Elf taking a fresh approach and building their ADS-B receiver around open standards, iFlightPlanner is fully on board.  We’ve never been a fan of exclusivity and we absolutely love the path that Bad Elf and others are forging with ADS-B device interoperability.  Together we recognize that pilots want a choice, and a chance to find the solution that best suits their needs.

The next version of iFlightPlanner for iPad is in the final stages of testing, and we've pushed its release back to include this new opportunity with Bad Elf.  Including the to-be-released Bad Elf ADS-B device, iFlightPlanner for iPad will support ADS-B connectivity for nine different manufacturers and at least thirteen different receivers, including both portable devices and certified ADS-B installations.

Be sure to keep an eye on the iFlightPlanner Blog for the latest updates on iFlightPlanner, as well as Kickstarter to learn more about the Bad Elf campaign!

Connecting X-Plane to iFlightPlanner for iPad, The Details

Wednesday, March 04, 2015 @ 10:31 AM

As described in an earlier iFlightPlanner Blog post, you have the ability to connect connect your iPad to your favorite flight simulator and make iFlightPlanner for iPad behave as if it were flying in the virtual skies with you!

The iFlightPlanner Installation & Setup Guide available in that post was a little soft on the details on how to connect with X-Plane so we're here to offer some clarification for our iFlightPlanner Premium members who are taking advantage of this functionality that's included in their memberships. Know that you will only need to refer to the step-by-step instructions starting on on Page 3, beginning with Step 8, as X-Plane does not require the FSXFlight Plugin.

In X-Plane you will want to go to Settings > Net Connections > iPhone/iPad Tab and select "send AHRS data to ForeFlight, WingX Pro, SkyDemon or FlyQ on ONE iPad or iPhone" or "send AHRS data to ForeFlight, WingX Pro, SkyDemon or FlyQ on ALL iPads or iPhones" (see additional screenshot).  If you select "ONE iPad or iPhone, be sure and note the IP address shown in the virtual GPS setting within iFlightPlanner for iPad for the correct IP address.  Once in iFlightPlanner for iPad simply select the Simulator GPS setting from the Settings menu and you'll be on your way!

As always, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.  There is a thread in the iFlightPlanner Forums with some great conversation and feedback on how pilots are using iFlightPlanner in the virtual cockpit and we invite you to join in!
