MCKINNEY, Texas, Dec. 15, 2020 /PRNewsCentre/ — Using the iFly GPS app on Android, iOS, or Windows, members are now able to seamlessly retrieve flight plans built in iFlightPlanner.
iFlightPlanner’s "Bring Your Own EFB" program, launched this summer in response to AOPA members’ desire to push flights planned with iFlightPlanner to their preferred Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), has been enhanced through a powerful integration with iFly GPS.
"In our first conversation with iFly GPS we saw a unique opportunity to extend iFlightPlanner’s technology in a way that allowed iFly GPS to offer a comprehensive, web-based flight planner to complement their multi-platform mobile products," said Andy Matthews, Director of Business Development for iFlightPlanner. "We could not be more appreciative of iFly GPS’ initiative to integrate with iFlightPlanner on behalf of their subscribers, especially for those flying with Android!"
Rob Colvin, iFly GPS’ Vice President of Strategic Development, said, "iFly GPS saw this as an opportunity to collaborate with iFlightPlanner and allow our combined technologies to provide a safer flight planning and cockpit experience for today’s pilot. We are very pleased to work with iFlightPlanner to provide a seamless experience for our shared customers."
Walter Boyd, President of Adventure Pilot, makers of iFly GPS, added, "We simply wanted our customers who use iFlightPlanner for web-based planning to have a seamless integration with our mobile EFB applications, to meet them where they are most comfortable flying – whether that’s on an Android, Windows, or an Apple device."
The new features, as well as a live Q&A with participants, were featured in a Livestream hosted by Eric Rush, AOPA’s Director of Product Development, on the AOPA Live YouTube channel on December 2. Members may watch by heading to www.iFlyGPS.com/iFlightPlannerLivestream.
The integration is available for all iFly GPS subscriber levels, and iFlightPlanner Core and Premium memberships, and for a limited time is available for iFlightPlanner for AOPA members.
