Dear friends of Mobile FliteDeck VFR, this new section “DID YOU KNOW?” is created to explain all possible functions which were frequently missed even though they already exist. This section is going to be updated on a regular basis and therefore we kindly advise you to keep an eye on this section. Thanks
Turning on graphical weather and wind forecast
There are many reasons why pilots have to circumnavigate and therefore divert from the planned route. This animated GIF shows you one option of how to circumnavigate with Jeppesen’s Mobile FliteDeck VFR.
Detailed Airport Information II
Please note that this popup contains even more information. By scrolling down until you see “MORE AIRPORT INFO” and by tapping on “opens in textviewer” you get all airport related information.
Once the popup appears you can tap on the chart symbol on the top left (highlighted in red) in order to get information with regard to the airport diagram (US Coverage) or to zoom in to view the airport layout (European Coverage) for briefing purposes. Note that there is a difference between US and European Coverage.
Detailed Airport Information I
Have you ever asked yourself where to find additional and detailed airport information for planning purposes? Here is the solution using the example of LIQQ (Castiglion Fiorentino/Italy).
Next Waypoint vs Destination
A frequently asked question by many customers: Where do I get any information about my next waypoint in terms of ETE, ETA, distance and bearing while in Live-Mode/”Go Flying” Mode?
Answer: Tap within the highlighted area on the left widget to switch between destination mode (default setting) and the next waypoint mode.
By tapping on the highlighted date you can adjust the date and time of the flight. Note that the NOTAMs are based on THIS date and time and the following day, hence you have to check the validity of this criteria prior to each flight. If you don’t, you might miss the relevant ones. The NOTAMs are valid within a corridor of 10nm from the planned route (5nm on each side).
