Seems like just yesterday (ok, 5 weeks ago) that I was announcing version 2.2 with 300% faster mapping, 4,600+ new Seattle Avionics Airport Diagrams, and CAP routing. Well, today is another day and another great new version – 2.3!
FlyQ EFB has connected to more devices and apps than anyone else for some time – 20+ ADS-B systems, all the major external GPS units, Aspen Connected Panel, X-Plane flight simulator, FlyQ Online, FlyQ Pocket, AOPA Flight Planner, and more. Today we extend our lead by adding integration with Dynon SkyView, AFS AF-5000 series, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Prepar3D flight simulator.
With new version 2.3, getting your flight plan to and from your Dynon or AFS system just takes a few clicks rather than dozens of knob-turns! When you combine new Web-based FlyQ Online with this, it means easy planning on your large-screen PC or Mac with a keyboard and mouse then getting it into you panel with almost no effort! It’s almost too easy!
Connecting to your panel also means that FlyQ EFB gets rock-solid GPS and AHRS feed so no more worrying about GPS batteries and recalibrating your AHRS.
FlyQ EFB has supported the X-Plane Flight Simulator for some time. Now with version 2.3 we also support the popular Microsoft Flight Simulator and sophisticated Prepar3D flight simulator. This reduces your training and concurrency costs — not to mention adds some fun on days that you can’t really drill holes in the clouds!
Learn about these great new features from the revised Pilot’s Guide in the new External Devices and Applications section.
Upgrades to FlyQ EFB are free.
