CoPilot is a multi-leg flight planning program for general aviation. It performs the calculations that you would normally perform with a ruler, a protractor and an E6B calculator. CoPilot performs time, distance, heading, fuel, and weight&balance calculations.
A free (worldwide) online database is consulted whenever you input a waypoint identifier. All of the waypoints in the same area as the requested waypoint are automatically downloaded so they are available for offline planning.
Within five minutes you can completely plan a multi-leg trip, with detailed climb calculations and fuel planning. The weight and balance is calculated and plotted. A flight plan form is ready for when you call the FSS.
The information for multiple aircraft can be entered into the database. When you plan a flight, you select the airplane that you will use and the calculations will be performed using the information for the selected airplane.
The Palm version of this application has been the best selling aviation application for many years. It has been completely rewritten for the iPhone.
