New FlightView Training Video

So here is a new 55 minute monster training video covering all things FlightView App. We start off with a quick review of what FlightView is and does, then take a brief look at the architecture. Next we walk through the process of installing the app on an iPad. Then we dive deep on the screens, with detailed descriptions of the overall layout, the PFD, MFD, EMS, COM Radio, Transponder, Autopilot, and Checklist system.

It’s a lot, but it does a good job of explaining how to use FlightView. I’ll follow it up with some other extended tutorials on installing the FlightView Hardware and configuring FlightView – both of which are likely to be equally as long and involved.

Please check it out and let me know what you think.

While this is still “experimental” we’re offering the plates and database for free.

Download the Data

  1. On a computer (not the iPad) download the plates data, which comes as a 3.95 GB zip file.
  2. Unzip the […]
