Flight Guide App

"With the recent release of our Flight Guide FLY-Wi WAAS GPS, we are now able to offer a reliable way to depict aircraft position on IAPs and our Flight Guide diagrams for a fraction of the cost of traditional avionics systems", said Brenda Garcia, Publisher, Airguide Publications. Flight Guide iEFB is available for free through the Apple App Store, and monthly data can be purchased through the Flight Guide iEFB app itself. Annual data plans are purchased through www.flightguide.com.

PRODUCT PREVIEWS


Color-Coded E6-B

ASA's new E6-B is enhanced with color for quick identification of key elements and easier readability. For example, weight and volume are depicted in red, distance and time in blue. The flight aid is based on ASA's original slide-rule-style flight computer, and is identical in size and made with the same aluminum construction. A vinyl case and instruction booklet both are included. Contact: www.asa2fly.com.

Knee Dock

In the cockpit, space is scarce. Originally developed for pilots, the Knee Dock is a light and comfortable holder for the Apple iPad that features a split base to keep your leg cool, even on long flights. A strap and buckle allow for quick adjustments with one hand, while the retaining clips keep your iPad secure. Contact: www.kneedock.com.
