Good real world review of the latest ADS-B receiver.

It’s common now (and completely legal) for GA pilots to fly with a paperless cockpit, relying on the iPad and iPhone for chart and document storage and viewing. While these devices are very reliable when configured with an app like ForeFlight and properly set up before flight, many IFR pilots still like an extra form of backup and carry a few paper charts with them. Fortunately several of aviation’s top apps make it quick and easy to print these charts right from the app, to either an AirPrint enabled printer or one configured on your wireless network. Here’s how to do it:
The iPad with Foreflight is quickly becoming a popular choice for paper chart replacement. If you’re flying a large airplane (more than 12,500lbs) or turbine-powered airplane governed by Part 91, Subpart F, or if you’re flying as a fractional or an on-demand, Part 135 operation, you’ll need formal FAA approval. Gaining approval for your iPad as an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) can be a time-consuming and complicated process – enlisting an expert can save you precious time and resources.
Sporty’s Easy Approval offers a complete, hassle-free solution for FAA approval of your iPad as an EFB and paper chart replacement. Sporty’s expert team will guide you step-by-step through the approval process and provide required documentation, training and operational guidance.
