Today we released AvPlan EFB 3.2 and it is now available in the Apple App Store. In this release we have added the ability to overlay instrument approaches and airport diagrams on the Mega VFR and En Route Low/Hi charts. Find the chart on the terminal page, then tap the pencil icon. Select ‘View chart on map’ and the En Route pane will open. The chart will then appear, along with a slider to change the opacity of the chart, and a close button to remove it from the map.
In addition we have added the ability to draw on the pages on the terminal pane. This can be used to highlight closed taxiways, altitudes on step down fixes, your taxi clearance, circuit direction and more. Tap the pen icon at the top, and the pen colour. Use your finger to draw on the chart. Double tap to stop editing, or select the pen icon and deselect the pen. A quick way to begin drawing is to double tap and this will use the blue pen. Double tap again to stop editing.
In addition we have added the following tweaks;
- When submitting a flight plan with a SARTIME for the first leg, the subsequent legs will have a SARTIME of TBA
- Deleting old data is much faster
- Updated map legends
- Removed ‘Not for use for air navigation’ disclaimer
