Honeywell announced its latest flight planning application for the Connected Aircraft, GoDirect™ Flight Bag Pro. GoDirect Flight Bag Pro is available via an iPad app, and versions for other tablets are in development.
This app is for business aviation pilots that they can create and file flight plans for easy reference, calculate and compare aircraft cruise modes to increase performance, and access real-time weather updates to ensure the aircraft arrives at the destination on time.
"This pilot-designed and pilot-approved technology simplifies flight planning and provides access to important flight information anytime," said Kiah Erlich, director, Flight Services, Honeywell Aerospace, and a pilot herself. "With real-time information made possible by in-flight connectivity, pilots using GoDirect Flight Bag Pro on a Connected Aircraft can stay informed of the best routes and weather conditions to get to their destinations safely and on time."
GoDirect Flight Bag Pro's simple, intuitive interface works on both domestic and international flights. For access to the app, pilots only need an annual subscription to GoDirect Flight Services and an active Honeywell account.
