In-Flight Operations: Public Beta (iOS)

ah ok, my bad.

OK, currently uploading beta 13, making the app work again for airplanes with no seatbelt sign. :)

The way it will work is for any airplane with the following in their name:

“Skyhawk”, “Caravan”, “Decathlon”, “Globemaster”, “Cirrus”, “TBM”, “A-10”, “F-16C”, “F-14”, “C-130”, “F-22”, “P-38”, “F/A-18”, “Spitfire”

I will not require the seatbelt sign but simply an engine start.

This is a good point - currently then for non-airliner aircraft it will automatically start the flight logging, which of course isn’t optimal if you want to first set the fuel. But on the other hand, you could set up the fuel first, and only THEN open IF-O in this edge case.

Note this version should hopefully also have the “final” fix for the “wrong runway” issue (which at least was getting more and more rare 😜).

@epaga I may have asked this in slack or on here-but is there a way to record the fuel used/remaining per each waypoint?

Shouldn’t I receive a notification that I’ve saved the flight report? If not, would love to see that

Sorry, but what is the point of this app? I don’t quite understand.

There’s a topic which has all info about this app. It’s a very nice idea, and all apps of @epaga are awesome! So if you have iOS, I recommend you to test it!

Why instead of starting the logging when an engine is started why not start it when the beacon is turned on, then finish the logging when the beacon is turned off. Only aircraft that it won’t work for is the TBM930, but that could work off engine start or even brakes release for the first time.

Also I’m currently in the Herc with all engines running unable to get it to start logging on the latest build (13)

Need any help with testing?

Yep! It’s a public beta for all of us to help find bugs to squash! Just click the link in the OP to get started (if you’re on IOS of course)

Not yet. I think it was posted in the middle of my flight.

Another 100% accurate report 👍🏻

I thought this was like the simbrief stuff where it would give you all the information you needed such as flight time fuel needed stuff like that turns out I was wrong

Also this!

This will allow you to CROSSCHECK your simbrief info at the end of your flight. If you use simbrief, you’ve still got to run your simbrief planning first, then compare (as I did above) your numbers after the flight.

For example:

My simbrief plan called for the following weights:

My end of flight report matched my simbrief numbers to the T! The “airline” is happy that I haven’t used any extra fuel in this case lol.

So I flew from Charlotte to Orlando. I couldn’t get the application to start recording after setting the seatbelts and smoking sign the first time. I had to terminate the application and restart it and the plane to get it to record.

Just had a little play around with it and Is completely accurate!

I was going for a step approach angle then flattened out. Don’t know how I pulled it off.
