This new version further distinguishes iFlightPlanner as the leader in cloud-based flight planning, making it the only EFB with comprehensive 2-way sync of pilot information, aircraft profiles, routes, weather briefs, weight & balance calculations, flight plan filing status, and digital flight track and logbook data between your iPad and the web.

“We were the first to bring wireless sync technology to the EFB market when we first introduced iFlightPlanner for iPad,” said Andy Matthews, iFlightPlanner’s Director of Business Development. “This new version of the app gives pilots the tools they need to make their flight planning process safer and much more efficient than with any other product. It eliminates the need to use one resource to plan a flight and copy-paste a route into another to fly it. iFlightPlanner.com and iFlightPlanner for iPad do it all for pilots, seamlessly.”
