In flight, Xavion constantly imagines engine-failed glides to every runway in gliding range, and then shows you the safest-possible route as a Highway-In-The-Sky to take to an airport in the event of engine failure. This, finally, gives you guidance after an engine failure that is based on energy-management all the way down, where the computer does the glide-planning for you… you just fly through the hoops to the runway. Xavion also has instrument approaches in 3-D for the United States, so you can simply select any approach and then fly through the hoops to fly it!
As well, Xavion tracks other airplanes via ADS-B, and memorizes their location to track their WAKE TURBULENCE, moving the wake turbulence down and with the wind over time, showing the wake turbulence as little spiraling tornados. Finally, an App that tracks and shows you the wake turbulence of other airplanes.
As well, Xavion gets ADS-B weather if you have a portable receiver, and displays it, including the new icing, turbulence, and lightning products. Xavion also gets METARS and winds aloft from the internet if you have a WIFI or cell signal to help you plan before a flight!
Also, Xavion checks your weight and balance, and even estimates your takeoff distance and compares that to the length of the runway that you are about to take off on to warn you if the available runway length from your current location is marginal for a safe take-off.
Also, Xavion estimates time and fuel burn at all different altitudes to any destination, showing you the time and fuel burn required for each altitude enroute, so you can pick the best altitude.
Xavion, and Xavion alone in the sky, gives engine-failure guidance and wake-turbulence avoidance.
Xavion is free to download, and requires In-App purchase of current airport data ($9.99/month, or $99.00/year). As well, you may OPTIONALLY buy USA Sectional Charts, Low and High Enroute Charts, and Approach Plates for $149.00/year.
Bug fix: Crash-on-launch bug fixed, which could happen if you have added custom-airports.
Other recent improvements: For power-off airport selection, Xavion now gives a bit of preference towards selecting airports that are CLOSER, even if farther airports are still technically within glide range. This gives you the ability to descend quickly if you want (as desired for pressurized airplanes that have lost pressure, a guaranteed result of losing power in a single-engine pressurized plane!)
This will also make it a bit more likely that you can CIRCLE down rather than glide TO a destination, allowing you a bit more flexibility in your descent.
Small UI Improvements and Bug fixes:
The resolution used to go to poor settings when rotating between Portrait and Landscape on some older devices.
This is now fixed, and Xavion is confirmed to run all the way back to the iPhone 8!
The main menus used to disappear sometimes when Xavion was in HUD mode. This is now fixed.
The touch-zone for the numeric entry is now displayed as larger, to make it easier to see where to touch.
The due-date for your medical exam was previously confused if you were within a dew days of turning 40 on the day of your medical, but this is now fixed!
Notes et avis
Please support iPhone X and new iPhones
Otherwise it’s a good app for xplane 11
Une application excellente !
Gage de sécurité en vol VFR ou IFR
Instrument de secours en cas de panne électrique en vol .
Excellente application !
Excellente application ! Excellente approche, orientée terrain, et qui a déjà fait ses preuves avec par exemple des utilisateurs qui avaient perdu en conditions IFR tous leurs affichages primaires et ont pu atteindre un terrain de façon plus sereine grâce à XAvion.
