Garmin International Inc. has announced new enhancements made available within the Garmin Pilot app for iOS mobile devices. Pilots flying around the globe, including Europe, are now offered the option of filing VFR flight plans for free directly with the country Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) with a Garmin Pilot subscription. Additional features for iOS include a flight profile view, new VFR charts for the United Kingdom and France, customized personal minimums, preferred runway selection based on favorable winds, aera® 660 integration and new, cost-effective pricing subscriptions. Rich, interactive maps integrated within Garmin Pilot offer comprehensive coverage throughout Europe, so flight planning is simple. Unique to Garmin Pilot, a radial menu provides easy on-screen access to create user waypoints, navigate direct-to, graphically edit flight plans, view weather conditions and airport information at a glance.
