Arinc Adds More to Its iPad EFB App

Arinc Direct has further developed its iPad app, which was launched at the NBAA Convention last year and designed to be a low-cost electronic flight bag (EFB) solution. The Arinc Direct app will soon include a moving-map display, weather-radar feed, runway analysis and enhanced flight-planning tools.

International business manager James Hardie showed AIN the FlightRisk feature last week during Arinc UK’s annual press event in London. He also demonstrated the increasing array of functionality, including runway planning, a map incorporating routing and weather-radar imagery. Hardie said the company is working to establish a position feed to allow inclusion of a moving map.

Existing features of the free app (Arinc subscription required) include access to flight-plan packages and trip records by city pair, tail number and departure date; D-ATIS, Metars, TAFs, notams and winds aloft for departure, arrival and alternate airports; and airport diagrams, takeoff minimums, instrument approach plates and SIDs/STARs.
