Geofa

For Iphone/xplane users

Recommended Posts

There is a program called "skycharts" for the iphone I have been using. It gives you current vfr charts with your aircraft geo referenced, along with approach plates and facility directory for airports which can be called up by tapping on the iphone over an airport. It is a great backup in an aircraft-however.........they just added the ability to use it with xplane. You change two settings in xplane-then using your wifi you now have a cordless moving map on your iphone-pretty cool-and for $10 an excellent value-both rw and sim world! (The new reality xp waas Garmin is amazing too).

Hi Geof-Also, do you know if the Sky Charts app will give you the ILS frequencies for any given airport or is that available on any other app? I am really loving my iPhone and XPlane!!!!!Thanks a lot,Howard

Hi Howard-In skycharts if you click on an airport with your finger you not only get the complete Airport Facility Directory (afd) but also all approach plates. The freqs are all there.
