WingX Pro7 Version 6.9 Adds Multiple Features

Includes Advanced SmartTaxi, Search And Rescue Grids, Search Patterns, XGPS170 ADS-B Support

Version 6.9 of WingX Pro7 has been released by Hilton Software of Parkland, FL. The new version includes three significant enhancements including SmartTaxi, Search And Rescue Grids and Search Patterns, and is the first iPad app to support the Dual XGPS170 Bluetooth ADS-B Receiver.

SmartTaxi is a patented technology developed by Hilton Software that was initially introduced several years ago on the WingX Windows Mobile solution. SmartTaxi has been enhanced to take advantage of the iPhone/iPad platform and is now enabled at over 4000 airports. When the aircraft is on or near a runway the entire runway is highlighted in red or yellow respectively on the airport diagram. In addition WingX Pro7 intelligently displays the runway identifiers for takeoff and displays the distance remaining in real-time – this even works when departing from co-located runways.

This additional layer of intelligence was added to prevent accidents similar to the fatal KLEX take-off accident in which the NTSB’s findings indicate: “The implementation of cockpit moving map displays or cockpit runway alerting systems on air carrier aircraft would enhance flight safety by providing pilots with improved positional awareness during surface navigation.”

WingX Pro7 supports about ten WiFi ADS-B receivers including the new XGPS170 Bluetooth ADS-B receiver. “With runway incursions becoming an increasing issue, SmartTaxi is a great feature. The WAAS GPS in the XGPS170 and XGPS150 ensures that SmartTaxi keeps you accurately informed of your position,” said Greg Lukins, VP Business Development for Dual Electronics.

WingX Pro7 Version 6.9 significantly expands its Search And Rescue (SAR) functionality by adding SAR grids and patterns – both are fully compatible with WingX Pro7’s Track Up and Split Screen features. WingX Pro7 generates and displays search patterns on the VFR Sectional based on a few pilot-entered parameters. WingX Pro7 even has an Auto mode that generates the optimal search pattern for a grid cell. Both new and old grid cell formats are supported.

“We are excited that Hilton Software is willing to include our grid references and search patterns in this release of WingX Pro7. These features will provide our personnel with enhanced situational awareness and accuracy augmenting our ability to provide inland search and rescue. We look forward to continuing a relationship with Hilton Software to better our crews with tools that will increase our volunteer’s safety while also increasing effectiveness,” said Capt. Shane Terpstra, Deputy Director Operations, Group 7 - Civil Air Patrol.

WingX Pro7 Version 6.9 is a free update on the App Store and iTunes.
