AvPlan EFB 7.5.3 is now available from the Apple App Store. This maintenance release adds the following new capabilities;

  • Graphical Area Forecasts with a line feature will have that line depicted on the map (see image below)
  • Graphical Area Forecasts with a point feature will have that location depicted on the map
  • When you tap on a sub-area in a GAF you will see the times depicted in both UTC and local time. The sub-area name will also be highlighted as well.

In this release we have reduced the automatic briefing update rate to once per hour (from every 15 minutes) and also changed the default to download low resolution GAF and GWPT images.

You can view high resolution GAF images under Weather -> Graphical Area Forecasts or under Weather -> NAIPS Charts
