Lockheed Martin Simulation Software Talks To Popular Tablet App
The same ForeFlight Mobile app used for flight planning and enroute navigation is now available for Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D simulation software. With FSXFlight as the interface, Prepar3D aircraft position information is sent to ForeFlight Mobile’s app, providing a moving map electronic flight bag. ForeFlight Mobile is another option to tailor the training experience in Prepar3D to match how pilots fly.
ForeFlight Mobile is an app used by pilots and flight operators to gather preflight weather information, plan flights, conduct preflight research, file flight plans and keep enroute charts and terminal procedures up to date. ForeFlight Mobile includes many FAA and NAV CANADA official flight publications, including the FAA Digital Terminal Procedures, the FAA’s digital aeronautical data, digital VFR and IFR enroute charts, NAV CANADA’s Canada Air Pilot procedures and more.
With this app, the user can can:
- Use the ForeFlight Mobile moving map.
- Display aircraft position on taxi diagrams.
- Display aircraft position on select approach plates.
- View aircraft speed, track and altitude information.
The interface requires the download of FSXFlight to connect Prepar3D to ForeFlight Mobile.
Prepar3D (pronounced "prepared") is a visual simulation platform that allows users to create training scenarios across aviation, maritime and ground domains. Users can train anywhere in the virtual world, from under water to sub orbital space.
