Flight operations engineering firm Aircraft Performance Group (APG, Booth C10021) is introducing two new subscription levels—Performance and Navigator—for its iPreFlight Genesis app that was launched last year. Performance provides runway performance and weight and balance data, while Navigator combines all the features of Performance with global flight planning and filing, graphical weather overlays and textual weather, and Notams. Performance and Navigator will both feature a relaunched graphical engine out procedures (EOPs). 

APG CEO Mike Caflisch said the level of detail provided in Performance is “rarely seen in an app at this level” with features that include “full-on satellite radar and turbulence, winds, lightning, avoid areas, Sigmets, special-use airspace, TFRs, and the ability to create manual avoid areas.” Users can manage multiple flight profiles and routing options directly within the app. It also provides an optimized route called APG Select Route.

APG also announced that it is partnering with Vision Logbooks and will make electronic maintenance logbook data available on the iPreflight Genesis app early next year. By incorporating logbook data in the APG app, “The crew can always validate the airworthiness status of their aircraft,” Caflisch said. 

In other company news, industry veteran Steve Card is joining APG as its chief customer officer. Card comes to the company after a career that included stints at the UK’s Royal Air Force and Jeppesen. APG’s global marketing will be further expanded via a new partnership with Latin America’s Aerowise and its principal Perla Fagendez.
