- Preflight preparation for pilots
Making a proper
preflight preparation is an important part of flight safety!
safety affects all pilots. Even recreational pilots must be aware of their
responsibility and develop a professional attitude. By automating the
calculation of a navigation log and a mass & balance, the flight preparation
becomes easier, faster and there is less room for errors.
The preflight preparation consists of a navigation log, a mass & balance
and a conversions program. Make your life easy, save time and …
log calculation software
Many recreational pilots become airborne without making a navigation
log. They have no idea of the wind effect and fuel consumption nor
do they have an alternate plan if the destination airport is closed
or if en-route weather deteriorates. From time to time, emergency
landings take place because the airplane ran out of fuel.
The navigation log programme provides a very easy, quick and safe
way to automatically calculate the wind effect, flight time and
fuel consumption. It’s also very handy to make last minute
changes. If for example, after preparing the navigation log the
wind has changed, the pilot can insert the new wind and immediately
see the results. The navigation log
can be saved and printed for use in flight.
& balance calculation software
Too many accidents
happen because the aircraft is not loaded within the limits of mass
& balance. For some reason, a number of pilots never makes a
mass & balance calculation, often because they think it’s
too complicated or it takes too much time. This attitude jeopardizes
their life and the life of others.
& balance programme provides an easy way to automatically
calculate the total mass of the aircraft and the centre of gravity
position. It’s also very handy to reposition passengers and
luggage or adjust the fuel and immediately see how the mass and
centre of gravity move. It can be used for any type of airplane,
single or multi-engine, that can carry up to 6 persons.
It can be printed and saved.
Whether you want
to convert nautical miles into kilometers or pounds into kilograms.
The program includes more than 90 2-way conversions (180 conversions).
