Airports for iOS (iPhone or iPad) is a handy companion app designed exclusively for flight simulation enthusiasts. For users of FSX, FS2004 or X-Plane (indeed any sim) it provides a quick and easy way to search for world-wide airport, navaid or weather information, and view terminal procedure charts (for the US).

The world aviation information database is massive! Downloading and managing it all can be prohibitive, not to mention pointless if you don't use it all. Airports solves this by delivering the data as requested, from the Cloud. Think big data without the big downloads.

Some airport information services can display data in a way that is overwhelmingly complex and hard to follow. Airports presents the more useful bits of information that flight simulation users rely on in an attractive, easy to read format.

Meteorological conditions are an important consideration for any flight and many flight sim pilots use real-world weather in their simulator. Airports will display the latest METAR (report) or TAF (forecast) if the airfield has those services.

The Airports app includes access to the full set of US TPP charts (Terminal Procedures and Airports). When viewing the information of any US airport, the app will present a list of any applicable SID, STAR, approach and airport diagram charts. The listed items can then be selected to view the PDF right within the app. This feature alone makes Airports a must-have for any sim pilot who flies in the US scenery area.

General Features List:

- Simple to use, attractively designed user interface
- Organises and displays information into easy to read sections
- Search for airports and navaids by name (e.g. San Francisco) or ICAO ident (e.g. KSFO)
- Cutting-edge mapping technologies present an initial overview of the airport or navaid
- Select the overview map to see a larger scrolling map for better orientation
- Access to the full collection of US TPP charts (Terminal Procedures and Airports)
- US TPP charts are displayed within the app using the internal PDF reader
- World-wide METAR and TAF weather information
- Tiny app size, no massive data file downloads required
- Data is retrieved as requested, meaning low bandwidth usage
- Powered by Amazon Cloud technologies (60+ content delivery servers world-wide)
