For maintenance work?

I used two apps extensively for general aviation in the US:
- Foreflight. Navigation, flight planning. Replaces AF/D, charts, approach plates, navlog etc.
- Aviation W&B. Weight and balance for general aviation.

Theres a flightradar24 app which is quite nice, theres a free version with basic surveillance info and a pro which gives you essentially the same as the PC app, at 2.70€ it is worth it.

Yes.I'm looking for Aviation Maintenance related apps.
I've found a few E-Magazines & Tutorials, but majority are for Flt ops,very few for Mx.

I checked out Flightradar24 last night , it was very accurate,The Aircraft touches down on the runway & the location is identical to the image on the map.Amazing.

Only noticed that not all Aircraft were being identified, any reason?.

An aircraft needs to be equipped with a ADS-B transponder to be visible to flightradar24. The other hang up is it uses a lot of enthusiasts with local radar equipment uploading info to flightradar24. This seems much improved from a year or two ago.

You may like "767 EICAS" with reference information for all Boeing 767 EICAS msg, description, level, and fault code. Some time it helps.


A "NO" is a positive answer. My Tutor

Foreflight for charts & plates.

For weight & balance, nothing comes close to being as good as W&B Pro ( http://www.wnbpro.com/ ) - it is remarkable.

I'm a fan of this app, as well as the upcoming radarbox24 app. I have the paid version of FR24, and it's actually pretty cool to be able to tell what airlines are flying over my house (granted, there's a delay imposed by the FAA).

AeroPlus is my weather app of choice.

It has a really nice interface and is very nice to use. It presents information in raw and decoded formats.

METARs are free with the app, you then have to subscribe for additional functionality such as TAFs etc.

Maybe Boeing toolbox application and a longer lasting battery on the 4S would help.

I've seen our mechanics come out to the airplane with iPads nowadays.

Before they'd arrive with paper copies of the maintenance procedures, now they are arriving with an iPad with electronic copies of the fault isolation manual, then referencing the appropriate maintenance procedure thru their iPad.

I have no idea what app they are using though. It could be goodreader for all I know.

On the flight ops side all of our manuals are PDFs that we read through Goodreader. As great as that sounds, the flight manuals are quite useless in PDF/electronic form they way they implemented them. And the Jeppesen app is not much better, if you aren't using the latest iPad it's quite buggy, slow, unresponsive and prone to crashing.

More useful are the two internally developed company apps which allow us access to all the things we'd normally access on the computer in ops and at the gate on our iPads and personal iPhones. Ever since we got these two apps, I haven't needed to touch a company computer at work.

The first allows us to access our dispatch flight release paperwork on the iPad, but we still need to carry and sign the paper version to handout to the gate agent. From the app we can pull anything we want: passengers lists, non-rev passengers, connecting gate info, performance numbers for the runway, our schedule, the airplane's routing, maintenance deferrals, the flight release, NWS and WSI weather and NOTAMS, company/station ops and deice frequencies, etc.

The second app, allows us to have realtime access to our Flight operations system/SABRE FOS and the passenger reservation/SABRE RES and watch the gate agent check each passenger on the flight as they're doing it and watch the passenger numbers go up, and pull up each passenger's PNR details.
