    I've used this app a few times for flight planning and it's very easy to use. Not tried flying with it yet but it looks to be well featured

    Amazing app, I just hope that in the next versions we'll be able to download charts, or better yet, Brazilian charts from AISWEB like another user mentioned before, and any other country where we can get free charts. Keep up the good work!
