iPADS in the Cockpit
This is not your father’s airspace.

Stoo Davies
Brief Description:

Flying today is faster, airspaces and restrictions more numerous, and skies more congested than when dad flew. What if it’s the first time in a new area? Can your eyes, pilotage and paper flipping keep up?

 The power, speed and flexibility of the iPad make it the ideal electronic flight bag. Many of us have already experienced the ease of electronic charts over paper charts. On a multi-state journey, it’s hard to beat the ability to zoom and scan rapidly. And it can be a lot lighter to take an iPad than several A/FDs, E6Bs, charts, and approach plate catalogs.

 Join Stoo Davies, instrument rated private pilot and computer programmer,  in this seminar  as he  covers the uses of the iPad as an electronic flight bag especially in relation to the most commonly used app, ForeFlight.  Pilots are invited to participate and share their experiences both with paper and electronics. A projector with an iPad connector will be available to share the iPad’s screen with the group at large.

 Flight planning, navigation, weather, airport information, and instrument procedures. Which uses are a good idea, and which can get you into trouble? Join us for a lively discussion of the latest in iPad applications and technology.

 This seminar is a must for the 21st century pilot.
