Android app tips

Postby Johan G » Sun Aug 09, 2020 2:37 pm

What aviation related apps do you have?

Some flight computers[1] for flight planning. While a real flight computer costs about $10 and up new, you could use an Android app as well (in the simulator :wink: ).

  • Free E6B by Intineo - This one does what it says on the box. Simple and easy to use.
  • Flight Computer Sim by Diego Rodrigues - This one is a bot more refined and and can be zoomed as well. More than 100000 downloads.
  • Rule Slide by Mastermodeling - This one I have not tested, but it appears to emulate a Russian sliding rule for navigation (and thus is in Russian).

A barometric altimeter that can be set in inHg (very few altimeter apps can be set for a pressure).

  • Pressure Altimeter by Edward Falk - God for demonstrating how a pressure altimeter works, transition altitude (on ascent) and transition level (on descent).
