Avidyne Announces Availability of iPad App for IFD540
The IFD540 Free-Play Simulator allows pilots to become more familiar with the operation of Avidyne’s innovative new IFD540 FMS/GMS/NAV/COM; IFD540 App for the iPad is available at no charge from Apple App Store.
Using the iPad or through an iTunes account, customers can download either the Americas or International version of the IFD540 simulator. Each version of the IFD540 simulator includes a full regional database of airports and charts, allowing pilots to get familiar with the user interface and operation of the IFD540 in the region and specific airports to which they fly.
“We have had a tremendous amount of interest in our new IFD540, and this free-play simulator allows pilots to become more familiar with the system and all its functionality,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are pleased to be able to offer this simulator at no-charge so that any potential buyers can see for themselves just how easy it is to use the IFD540.”
Apple iPad users can perform virtually all IFD540 product functions including flight planning, mapping, configuration, and frequency management via the iPad touchscreen. With a WiFi internet connection, users of the Americas version can receive live “datalink” WSI weather while ‘flying’ in the Continental US region.
