fDeck is an aircraft flight deck in your pocket that provides real-world functionality to a suite of full-featured, graphically beautiful flight instruments for your mobile device.

It allows you to virtually tune any radio aid from a worldwide aviation database, or create your own 'virtual' radio aids whever you want to practice radio navigation. Use the app as a training aid, or use it as a set of complimentary flight instruments when flying.

In addition to the beautiful flight deck instruments, fDeck also has a built-in aviation moving map that shows your location as well as relevant airspace, airport and weather and navigation data. You can move your location on the map to reposition your virtual aircraft and the flight instruments will reflect this new location. This allows you to use fDeck as a radio navigation trainer - you can see in real-time what the VOR, HSI or NDB will look like at your new location!

The following instruments are currently available in the app:

• Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI)
• VHF Omnidirectional Range Receiver (VOR)
• Automatic Direction Finder (ADF)
• Artificial Horizon
• Groundspeed Indicator
• Vertical Speed Indicator (VSI)
• Aircraft Compass, with functioning heading bug
• Altimeter - with functioning barometric pressure adjustments
• Chronometer with fuel totaliser
• Flight Planner
• Weather and Wind - display current live weather and wind information including head/crosswind components

If you use the X-Plane flight simulator you can even drive the flight instruments straight from X-Plane!

Key features:

• Instruments are proudly graphically accurate with ultra smooth animations
• Grid and Swipe user interface modes
• Go full-screen to focus on a single instrument, or use multiple of the same type
• Tune each instrument slot to a different radio station
• Simulate flight by panning your location on the map - use the app as a radio aids trainer!
• Worldwide aviation database containing over 20k airports and radio navigation aids, updated monthly
• Fully searchable navigation database, filterable by type
• Map view with aviation overlays showing location and tuned radio stations
• Each instrument has an associated video tutorial
• Add your own navaids - want to practice VOR radial tracking on your house - now you can!
• Supports tablets and phones and both portrait and landscape orientations

Excellent. Love having standard 6-pack as a backup.

I use fDeck quite often as a backup to my glass instruments as well as when flying the light-sport that has the bare minimum instruments. I guess it’s a good comfort zone for me as an older pilot.

Great for Land Vehicles Too!

DooDaddy1 on

I bought this app for the inclinometer and found it super useful for vehicles. The extra aviation instrumentation is a bonus. Thanks for putting this out. Awesome

Amazingly Simple (like me)

I can’t wait to use this on my Trike that I fly !

Flight deck

Argyle_Sox on

This is the perfect companion for the road or air! I use it daily!

Hoping it works on my ultralight.

Yournamegoeshere4ever on

I’m going to use this on my Affordaplane Ultralight. I’ll give a honest review when I start using it. I’ll show actual video on my YouTube channel of me using this. I hope it works as good as it works.

Does not support iPad split screen

Markdcf on

The app seems well done, but I want to use it in conjunction with a different app on my iPad, and split screen is not allowed so it does me no good. Deleted.

This app was perfect before but this Chronometer and GSI will help so much. Thank you!

Interesting so far.

Looks great, doesnt work

KloneMonk on

Great idea and the app looks amazing. I was really looking forward to using it with the X Plane simulator. Unfortunately it’s very glitchy and the connection to the simulator mostly doesn’t work.Too bad maybe a later version will do better.

Killer App!

I fly a trike (microlight) with no on-board instrumentation and discovered FDeck a few months ago after trying a few other iPhone flight apps…I’m thrilled I landed on this-it’s amazingly simple and easy to use. I have it set up so each instrument gets its own full screen view and swipe to the next one whenever I want a different instrument. The Automatic Direction finder is killer but so is the Attitude Indicator and the Vertical Speed Indicator and Compass. I’ve not used the VOR or the HSI indicators yet but I’m sure they are just as easy to follow and read as the others. The design is great. I can easily read the instruments at a glance and the functionality of FDeck is incredible and so well thought out-I purchased a lifetime membership and was more than happy to do so. I use it every time I’m up. Works great with my iPhone. Re using an iPhone while flying in the open air: I’m impressed with the the ability to keep on running in the freezing temps here in the Northern Pennsylvania Wintertime. I was up recently at 22 degrees F (-5.5 C) for about 2 hours and it never faltered. Awesome! I have it mounted on my Ram Mount and using it with an iPhone SE. My trike is an Australian made Airborne Outback.
