Pre-Flight is a multi-leg flight planning app for the iPhone. It allows you to do most of the work that would normally require a ruler, maps, protractor and E6B calculator. What is more: Pre-flight provides you with a world wide forecast for wind aloft which is automatically used to calculate the wind correction angle for each leg of your flight and to suggest the most economic cruise altitude.

To set up a flight takes less then 5 minutes: select your origin, destination and alternate fields from a build in database. Add optional (custom) waypoints to your route. Select your aircraft from the list of aircraft available. Set your desired cruise altitude, temperature and QNH and you are ready!

Pre flight calculates:

– The wind aloft (from on-line database)
– Time and fuel requirements
– Magnetic heading, wind correction, true course
– Most economic altitude for every leg in the flight

Pre-Flight also supports:
– Multiple planned flights
– World wide forecast for wind aloft for the next two days
– Map-based custom way point editing
– A database of over 52000 fields and nav-aids
– Simple slider based controls.

    An outstanding application that provides access to weather, NOTAMs and
    flight planning information to help you prepare for, and complete,
    your flights. Simple, largely intuitive, interface makes use very
    straightforward.
