Smile Aviation Apps

Please Login to Remove!

Hey, I'm new to this forum, and I landed here trying to find an aviation application for my BB. There is a program that will run on Palm products and anything that runs Window's Mobile, but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about an application for pilot's to do flight planning on a BB? Any help would be appreciated.

Flight Deck can be found at: FltPlan.com's Flt Deck Airport/FBO Guide.

Another aviation weather provider is WXSYS: WXSYS On Demand - Aviation for BlackBerry

John Clark - one of the forum moderators is a commercial pilot and may be able to chime in on some others...

The Flight Deck program as noted above. It is a pretty good program. It is like having a Airport facility Directory on your BB. And you can use it in the air; no internet access is required once you get it installed.

I use mobile.wunderground.com for weather a lot. It has 5 day forecast, Moving Radar, and the nearest airport weather when you select cities. Also, one of the best features is that you can generally put any 3-4 letter airport ID and get the local weather, metar etc.


Also, fltplan.com/cell.htm is great for very easy access to Metar, TAF, and Notams.

fltpan.com/pda.htm for the same, but you can file flight plans. (gotta have a flightplan.com account, which is free)

Those are the programs/sites that I use the most.
