AvPlan takes flight in NZ

iOS app now contains full local support with officially-licensed maps

iOS-based flight planning software, AvPlan, has entered local air space with its latest version, which is now available for pilots in New Zealand.

Launched in 2011 by pilot and software developer, Bevan Anderson, AvPlan intends to simplify the process of developing and filing aircraft flight plans for iPad and iPhone users. In addition to automatically maintaining the latest available maps and charts on the iPad, it uses Internet access to download and interpret current weather forecasts for optimal route planning and to calculate the most time and fuel-efficient flight altitudes.

AvPlan EFB 3.4 includes full support for NZ after Anderson officially licensed all maps and the Aeronautical Information Package (AIP) from Airways NZ.

In using the app, NZ-based pilots will have access to a NZ-specific VNC chart, IFR en route chart and the complete NZ AIP (Volumes 1 to 4), including geo-referenced airport diagrams and VFR and IFR approach and departure procedures.

According to a statement from AvPlan, the NZ version of the app has already attracted “hundreds of Kiwi pilots,” extending the app’s expansion momentum which was boosted by investment from Internode founder, Simon Hackett.

Hackett, who is a professional pilot himself, invested in a 40 per cent stake of AvPlan in November last year following his own experiences with the software.

AvPlan is available as a subscription which starts from $99 per year. Maps for Australia and the US are also available.
