[prMac.com] Herndon, Virginia - CFI Tools today is pleased to announce the availability of CFI Tools Nearest 1.0.1. This is the latest in a popular line of iPhone and iPad Apps for the aviation industry. The value of this App is apparent to any pilot. It's simple intuitive design makes it a natural for any pilot with an iPhone or iPad.
The strength of this App is its simplicity and usefulness. A touch of the button and you see the bearing and distance to the 100 nearest Airports and NAVAIDs. The Bearing "To" the station can be flipped to the Radial "From" the station with the touch of the From/To button. The NAVAIDs can be filtered by type. If you are just interested in Airports or VORs you can turn off the other stations to just focus on the items you need.
The data base of Airports and NAVAIDs is derived from the FAA National Flight Data Center data base. Therefore it contains data only for the United States Airports, VOR, NDB and other NAVAIDs.

It is very simple and very useful. One touch and you have all the distance and bearing information that you need at a glance. This App complements the GA pilot's training and enhances the pilot's situational awareness. That makes a better pilot and that makes a safer pilot".
