Hilton Software LLC has just released WingX 2.5 for Pocket PCs and Pocket PC Phone Editions. WingX 2.5 adds DUATS support, which streamlines the preflight process and minimizes ground delays. Additionally, WingX 2.5 allows pilots to view animated RADAR, lightning probability and satellite images more easily and efficiently than ever before. The program provides the tools for pilots to calculate their weight and balance, plan a route, view color-coded METARs and TAFs along that route, check the animated RADAR, receive a legal DUATS weather briefing (including NOTAMS) and then file a VFR or IFR flight plan, all in a matter of minutes. WingX 2.5 is Windows Mobile 5.0- and 6.0-compatible, VGA-optimized and Internet- and GPS-enabled.

RAM Aircraft LP is now offering new, state-of-the-art propeller technology for turbocharged Cessna 200-series aircraft.

The ScimitarPlus SE offers a combination of blended-aluminum airfoil design and tip sweep. A high-lift series of airfoils enhance takeoff and climb performance, and the total weight of the propeller assembly is lighter than that of stock propellers for applicable aircraft.
