AvPlan EFB: Flight Planning Made Easy

Last edited: 25 February 2021, 5:40pm

Recreational Aviation is a well-known early adopter of technology, from modern engines such as the Rotax 912iS to a myriad of fully appointed glass-cockpit, air-conditioned, ballistic-chute equipped aircraft. Having embraced the technological advances of the late twentieth and early twenty first century, it is not surprising that the use of electronic flight bags (EFBs) is extremely popular among RA-AUS pilots.

Words & Images: AvPlan Australia

At AvPlan EFB, we are proud to include several RA-AUS and recreational pilots as staff members in both the development and support teams. Between us, we’ve flown Foxbats, Jabirus, Tecnams, Savage Cubs, Eurofoxes, Sportstars, Powered Chutes and all manner of home-builts. As RA-Aus pilots (and an instructor) ourselves, we understand your EFB needs, which is why we offer a VFR only subscription designed to give you everything you need to plan your flight, avoid controlled airspace and stay alert with up-to-date weather and traffic services.

Live Traffic

Improving situational awareness is an obsession of ours. We understand the space limitations of smaller cockpits and have placed our focus on bringing the user as much information as possible without ever having to change pages. Almost all in-flight features can be accessed from the map page exclusively, including:

-          All weather radar overlays (rain, cloud, visibility, and ceiling)

-          Traffic - see traffic in your area, including ADS-b equipped traffic operating on the cellular network OR connect your external ADS-b receiver, free of charge

-          Flight Plan – your flight plan is visible at all times on the left-hand side of the page

-          Airport information – tap an airport to find frequencies, weather information (including plain English TAF and METARs) NOTAMS and charts

-          Aerodrome diagrams accessible on the map by simply pinching in on desired airport

-          Notification alerts for CTA, terrain, battery level and frequency changes

-          Synthetic vision, fuel availability, profile view, obstacle database, terrain database


We also understand the beauty of simplicity, bringing the user the ability to create, build and file a flight plan with minimal input.
