Aircraft Performance Group (APG) announced the inclusion of graphical engine-out features to its iPreflight Genesis app, as well as executive appointments and new sales agreements at NBAA-BACE 2019. The app, launched in 2018, is tailor-made for business aviation, and focused on single-pilot operators and small flight departments.

The iPreflight Genesis app now includes engine-out performance calculations in its flight-planning tools, with text plus a proprietary graphic to help the pilot visualize those departure procedures. A printer-friendly version is available of the graphic and data for the pilot to print and include on a clipboard in the cockpit.

The app comes in two subscription levels now, with the Navigator level offering worldwide flight planning with weather graphic overlays and multiple flight profiles and routing options.

APG also announced the appointment of navigation industry veteran Steve Card as its chief customer officer, overseeing sales and marketing as the company grows. It has inked a partnership with Vision Logbooks—which is “in the process of killing the value chain in paper maintenance tracking,” according to Mike Caflisch, CEO. The AC 120-77-compliant programs will be incorporated into the app so that pilots can access and manage maintenance logs, and have a current, true, certified version on hand for tracking airworthiness. Currently available as a standalone product, the functionality will be incorporated into the iPreflight Genesis app next year.
