AvPlan EFB 7.10
AvPlan EFB 7.10 for iOS is now available from the App Store. This release adds a number of new features and improves a few others;
- RNAV approaches can be inserted into a flight plan by dragging and dropping on the map and terminal page.
- New flight plan report formats (3 new in total)
- Correct altitudes of ADSB targets for the local QNH
- Big improvements to aircraft model syncing across your devices
- Support for the uAvionix SkyEcho2
Insert RNAV Approach
Use the drag and drop function on the map or terminal pane to insert an RNAV approach into your plan. Insert an initial approach point and the app will prompt you to choose the relevant approach and insert it into your flight plan.
Flight Plan Reports
Pro users now have the option for three more types of flight plan reports. Two different options for landscape reports and a new portrait report.
The flight plan reports can be viewed and selected under Planning, View/Print Flight Plan Reports
AvPlan EFB 7.10 includes support for the uAvionix SkyEcho2. This device is the first approved VFR only ADSB-in and ADSB-out device in Australia. With the SkyEcho2 you will both receive ADSB broadcasts from other ADSB out equipped aircraft and it will also transmit your position to aircraft with ADSB-in. With a 12 hour battery life, the SkyEcho2 will last a full days flying.
Just connect your iPad and iPhone via WiFi to the SkyEcho2 and enable Traffic under Map Settings. Cellular iPad’s will also receive other data via the cellular connection when connected to the SkyEcho2.
AvPlan EFB will also use the GPS in the SkyEcho2 in lieu of the internal GPS, saving battery life on your device.
Aircraft Profile Syncing
In this release we have greatly improved the way aircraft profiles sync across your devices. We’ve completely reengineered the way we sync content in AvPlan EFB, and aircraft profiles is the first of many improvements this will bring to the app in the future.
AvPlan EFB 7.10 now corrects the altitudes of traffic received from a directly attached ADSB receiver. Altitudes are now converted from a pressure altitude to the altitude based on the current QHN. This happens automatically for all aircraft below the transition altitude.
See the AvPlan Omni page for a list of currently supported ADSB devices.
Flight logging is also greatly improved in AvPlan EFB 7.10. AvPlan EFB will do a far better job recording block off/block on times, departure events on multi stage plans and even go back to Plan mode automatically after your flights complete.
AvPlan EFB 7.10 also includes a number of fixes and small improvements.
- An issue where minimum variable reserve causes a negative margin is resolved
- Fix in issue when cancelling a plan via NAIPS
- Fix an issue getting multi stage SPFIB briefings when an alternate is present
- Fix an issue where the app could crash accessing an approach plate with many annotations
