[prMac.com] Herndon, VA - The latest version of the CFI Tools Takeoff & Landing App continues CFI Tools' expansion in the iPod/iPhone/iPad aviation App industry. The T&L App allows pilots to enter the weight and weather variables for their flight and get the expected takeoff and landing distances for the flight. To make this process easier the App will download the current weather conditions from the National Weather Service (NWS) to make the calculations. This aviation weather data is known as a METAR and is the standard weather report supplied by thousands of airports worldwide.
Pilots are required by FAA regulation to calculate expected takeoff and landing distances for each flight. These calculations require current weather reports including temperature, wind direction and speed and air pressure. The T&L App gathers this information from internet sources as and uses it with generic guidance from airplane owner's handbooks to make the calculations. With this information it makes a useful training device for pilots who must make these calculations.
This addition of the Cessna 172L, Cessna 172M and Cessna Cardinal brings to 16 the number of general aviation aircraft now supported by the T&L App. CFI Tools expects to continue this expansion based on aircraft popularity and customer requests. This list includes the most popular general aviation aircraft manufacturers including Beechcraft, Cessna, Cirrus, Diamond and Piper.
