Navtech WiFly for iPad

iPad screenshotNavtech and partner International Flight Support (IFS) have expanded the scope of the WiFly product to also include  online performance data for iPad,  providing customers with additional choices in hand-held EFB Class I devices for use with Navtech’s aircraft performance calculation tools.

The WiFly Class 1 EFB product for iPad is based on a unique 24/7 online flight support system where the communication is handled by the award winning software which uses its own IP/http based communication software to  achieve rapid sending and receiving of data, without using the WAP and Browser on the device. The application checks for network availability and quality, and where possible, it establishes a local connection in order to minimize the roaming cost. Connecting to the server takes approximately 5-10 seconds. During this time the pilot can start entering values for the computation. The time from the request of a calculation to the reception of the results is 2-5 seconds.

Currently, the following aircraft types are supported: Boeing 737/757/767, Airbus 318/319/320/321/330, ATR42/72, CRJ200/CL850, MD80/90, ERJ135/145, RJ70/85/100, BAE146, SAAB 340/2000, and Fokker 50/100. New aircraft types can be implemented and ready for testing in 3-6 weeks.
