Cincinnati, Ohio-based Sporty’s Pilot Shop is highlighted at NBAA 2014 its Sporty’s Easy Approval program for iPad use for Part 91F and Part 135 operators. The program is a simple solution for FAA approvals of iPads as an electronic flight bag (EFB) and paper chart replacement using the ForeFlight Mobile app.
“Chief pilots have more important tasks at hand than shuffling the required paperwork involved in this approval process,” said Sporty’s v-p John Zimmerman. “We say, ‘Let Sporty’s do it.’” The approval program includes a detailed description of the approval process and an execution plan, including templates for checklists, operational procedures and training program. Sporty’s said dozens of corporate flight departments have used the program to gain their FAA approvals.
