Approach Systems Intro's APIC Real Time Approach Plates

Available Via Online Subscription; Current Users Will Receive Free Update

Representatives with Approach Systems Corporation, developer of APIC Glass Cockpit Software Technology, told ANN this week of the addition of Real Time Approach Plate capability to APIC's suite of glass cockpit software technologies.

APIC is an all inclusive, GPS based, Moving Map, Primary Flight Display (PFD), HSI, Engine Monitoring software package that runs on Microsoft based platforms like Tablet PCs, Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC), PDAs and other Windows Mobile based devices.

In addition to displaying standard NOS approach plates and airport diagrams, APIC can now display and fly both the horizontal and vertical let down sections of the standard NOS Approach plate. APIC allows displaying a standard moving map, PFD and approach plate simultaneously in any user view configuration. The new capability is a no cost addition to the standard APIC software subscription.

Approach provides a CD/ROM containing all US NOS plates. APIC is plug and play; the user does not need to "calibrate" their plates. Calibration for all 12,000+ plates is already done by Approach.

Current APIC customers will have this capability with the standard 28 day update in March 2007. New customers can obtain a subscription to APIC for $89.00 on-line. The APIC/Plate CD/ROM cost is just $10.00 for shipping and handling for any single month update. Yearly subscriptions are available for $99.00. Approach will send a new CD/ROM every 28 days with the yearly subscription.

Approach APIC provides modern glass cockpit technology on low cost Commercial off the shelf (COTS) platforms based on Microsoft XP and Windows Mobile based technologies. Approach will be demonstrating APIC's new Approach Plate capability at the Northwest Aviation Conference in Puyallup, WA February 24 & 25, 2007. Booth 267.
