En Route: Honeywell’s New iPad App Optimizes Routes

Honeywell has released its latest flight planning application GoDirect Flight Bag Pro. Pilots can create and file flight plans for easy reference, calculate and compare aircraft cruise modes to increase performance, and access real-time weather updates to ensure the aircraft arrives at the destination on time. GoDirect Flight Bag Pro is available via an iPad app, and versions for other tablets are in development.

GoDirect Flight Bag Pro’s simple, intuitive interface works on both domestic and international flights. For access to the app, pilots only need an annual subscription to GoDirect Flight Services and an active Honeywell account.

Features of GoDirect Flight Bag Pro:

Flight Plan Overview: To view an upcoming flight route, pilots can type in or paste a route from a website, email or text message into the app. Pilots can also view frequently cleared and optimized routes for best aircraft performance. With in-flight connectivity, pilots can even make adjustments while in the air.

Flight Bag Pro Performance Calculator: Calculate multiple cruise modes and determine the most efficient flight by comparing speed, flight level, time, fuel, cost of the trip and more.

Trip Kit: Package all of the trip documents into a Trip Kit to view during flight. Access the latest weather information for your destination such as icing, winds and temperature, even prior to takeoff.

Flight Schedule Updates: Pilots can receive real-time updates to flight schedules when information is released from air traffic control with a pre-departure clearance, when filing status changes, or when weather conditions change.
