June 12, 2014 - FltPlan.com, the largest online and mobile device flight planning service, has rolled out a new app for Android devices.
Just like the company’s very popular app for Apple iPads, the new Android app links seamlessly to www.FltPlan.com. You can go from a desktop to a mobile device in any order and not need to change anything or lose information.
Apple iOS devices, like the iPad, dominate in the cockpit, but more and more capable Android devices are becoming available from companies such as Google and Samsung, and FltPlan.com wants pilots to have a choice. Pilots can use any combination of Apple’s iOS or Android devices and if the battery goes dead or you forget your mobile device you always have full FltPlan.com capability available from any computer.
As always flight planning and flight information, including FAA certified and approved weather, are always free on FltPlan.com.
The company, founded and operated by pilots, introduced a new service in January called FltPlan Go. It is a streamlined version of the original FltPlan.com that offers even more features than the original legacy system. FltPlan.com will continue to support the legacy system so there is no need for pilots to change to Go if they don’t want to.
Any pilot can register to use FltPlan.com for free at the website. More than 145,000 pilots use the service regularly and a large majority of the non-airline flight plans are filed using FltPlan.com.
