Just landed with -26 FPM 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Consider “saying” the out,off,on,in Times.
That is a common cockpit conversation.


#368

I just realized this- could there be a distance flown (in nautical miles) statistic listed on the report? It’s slightly inconvenient for me to travel back to fpltoif.com each time to see my plan’s distance.


#369

Hm, that’s not so nice. Think the call outs are the best option.
Some thing like “engines started” “in cruise” “at descend “ “touchdown” “reached gate”


#370

Yes! Or just at the end of the flight saying something like, your flight has been recorded but please don’t scrap this app, its amazing


#371

butter -28ft/min is so smooth


#372

Thing is that would kinda conflict with the IF-A callouts - which voice would they be, etc.

My current idea is that you could pick iTunes songs/playlists for each phase of your flight - pre-flight, taxi, takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, approach, landing, taxi, post-flight…seems like that could actually be kind of fun, no? It would be deactivated at the start, but it would at least justify the background audio flag.


#373

I would not mind a welcome aboard when the seatbelt sign is turned on, then when at cruise it says we are at cruising altitude and after the engines turn off a thank you for flying with us.


#374

So I just did a proof of concept, and it works!
Just need to make it pretty which will take a few days…but you’ll (optionally) be able to pick an album or playlist to play for each phase of your flight.

I have to say, it is kind of magical to have music suddenly start playing when you enter the runway. 😎

These are pretty much all part of the PA in-app in In-Flight Assistant! :)


#375

You could have this song begin playing once you turn final 🤷🏼‍♂️


#376

I would delete the app if that was ever associated with it.


#377

I just choacked on my toast


#378

Will there be an option to turn it off lol?


#379

It will be off by default, in fact!


#380

Hey I tried it out and it’s amazing my flight plan looked super detailed great job 🙂🙂


#381

I will be installing this after my long haul flight from YSSY to KIAH. A lot of us at UVA have it. Keep up the great work @epaga


#382

Do phone calls not interfere with the app anymore? I had someone call me and the flight completed and the app still ran.


#383

Yeah, it was fixed a few builds ago.


#384

Oh ok nice
