Aircraft Performance Group has extended the functionality of its iPreFlight app for the iPad by integrating a flight planning module from Air Support. The revised app is available for preview in its Beta version at the APG booth (6423).

Previous versions of iPreFlight provided runway analysis and weight/balance calculations without the need for an Internet connection. Adding a module using the Air Support PPS flight planning tool allows iPreFlight to be used as a “one-stop” for pre-flight planning purposes.

With the new addition, iPreFlight can be used to generate a flight book–a complete planning package that includes runway and weight-and-balance information, weather, Notams and flight plans. Such flight books can be prepared by dispatchers in advance with changes being made to keep them up to date as new information is obtained.

Aircrew can make last-minute adjustments to existing flight books to generate a new release. One of the features is a maximum payload generator, drawing on weather, runway and other parameters to calculate what is the maximum payload that can be carried for a specific planned takeoff.

Castle Rock, Colorado-based APG’s new app is free to account-holders. Customers need to have their specific aircraft data set up in the system before it can be used. The set-up process takes about a week, using detailed aircraft-specific weight-and-balance data, said APG.
