Flight Planner & E6B for Palm OS Handhelds......

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience using Flight Planners on a Palm Handheld?I'm considering one of the three following programs and I'd like to get opinions on what works best for simming or if they simply overkill:1. [a href=http://www.inhandaviation.com/products.htm#]FlightPlannerFlight Planner for Palm OS [/a]2. [a href=http://www.larrylowe.com/ie/ACPro.html] AirCalc Pro 2[/a]This is actually being superceded by the Inhand Flight planner3. [a href=http://lauriedavis9.tripod.com/copilot/]CoPilot Flight Planning[/a] The cool thing about this program is that it is free and comes with a complete Navdata set that allows you to fly to and from the most obscure airports without having to manually input lat/lon positions.Now...why would I want any of these when I already have FSNavigator and FSBuild 2? Because after years of simming with 767 PIC, I've been spending a lot of time flying GA aircraft, especially the Dreamfleet Piper Archer II. I've gone back to basics about navigation and flight planning and I actually do enjoy doing it by hand. Right now my biggest problem is trusting my own calculations and not sneaking a peek at the moving map in FSNavigator. BTW, Am I the only person not particularly excited about COF2004? :-lol

I have used Co-Pilot for a year now. Takes some getting used to, but is pretty simple. And FREE. Try it first. Works well.Murdock

Thanks Murdock....I'll give CoPilot a try. I was kinda reluctant to install any of the applications without opinions from others because they all require some time to set up/edit the aircraft parameters correctly.
