Description

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 live weather and wind information including live TAF & METAR reports

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

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

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.

What a great app!

Just started using this app recently and what a surprise I’m a flight instructor and Instrument Instructor (CFII) and this app offers all sorts of utilities for both teaching and flying. The applications for this app are too numerous to detail but . . . I like to set the ADF (RMI) to the destination airport when shooting approaches so that when I’m turned over to CTAF I can give very accurate position reports Additionally, I keep nearby VORs in the flight planner function so that I can give rapid position reports relative to Nav Aids when I’m requesting flight following or practice approaches. I use the chronometer for always having access to ZULU time and flight time and, it has an approach timer as well (and fuel estimations). The map function allows me to teach navigation to primary students augmented by the creation of virtual positions for teaching prior to a flight. The new flight planner function makes this app more practical than many other similar apps. I keep an active list of favorite NAV-Aids and airports and can easily “tune“ them with the flick of a finger I’m really looking forward to what this developer will continue to do with this app, I’m using it now for most flights.

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.

Chronometer!!

Shuflar on

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