Southbury, CT – February 27, 2017. FltPlan Go, FltPlan.com’s free EFB app for iPad, now supports DAC International’s GDC64 Tablet Aircraft Interface Unit (TAIU). FltPlan Go users can transfer a wealth of information, including GPS position, heading, altitude, speed, and track information as well as onboard XM Satellite weather information, including U.S. and Canadian radar, lightning, echo tops, and CIP from the panel into the FltPlan Go app.
The GDC64 connects directly to the aircraft’s power buss and is Part 25-approved. The unit features four ARINC 429 ports allowing for seamless transfer of this complex, real-time data to the FltPlan Go app. The wired connection of the GDC64 offers the added benefit of serving as a safe and approved power supply.
“We are very excited to offer FltPlan Go users access to mission-critical radar and weather information through the GDC64. We believe that the GDC64 offers is a great choice for panel to tablet connectivity,“ said Sarah Wilson, FltPlan.com principal. “Our objective is to offer as many connectivity options to our users as possible and the GDC64 is unique in its combination of power supply and data transfer capabilities.”
The free FltPlan Go app, featuring GDC64 support, is currently available for download from the Apple App Store.
