FLIGHT PLANNER 5000 V2.8.1 UPDATE PACKAGE

 

 

Flight Planner 5000 version 2.8.1 is available for download from the iTunes store.

 

Flight Planner 5000 is an advanced system for electronic flight planning for pilots.  The software is based on the Flight Planner 3000 software which has been extensively used on Windows based computers for a many of years.  The operation of FP5000 on the iPad is very similar to the operation of the FP3000 software on a Windows computer.

 

FP5000 is a complex product that has been developed from scratch, based on the Windows FP3000 product.  The complexity of the product and the different programming language and mathematical routines means that the same flight plan may produce slightly different figures for some calculations.  The data behind the FP3000 and FP5000 software products is built from the same master database so should be exactly the same.

 

Please feed back any problems or suggestions to us.  We appreciate your comments.
