Flight Breaks is an intuitive and simple way for airline crews or pilots to seamlessly calculate rest periods on augmented international or long-haul flights. The app is designed for airline crews worldwide who need to divide up specific amounts of flight time for determining rest and work periods.

Simply set the “Off Time” (take off time), then set the “Flight Time” (duration of flight) as shown on your flight plan, and the “On Time” (land time) is calculated. Additionally, if the “On Time” changes significantly (longer or shorter) due to short cuts or favorable/unfavorable winds, you can change the “On Time” to match the flight computer. This will then in turn alter the flight time and breaks accordingly.

Various break options are available depending on how your airline or crew wants to divide up the breaks. The parameters for when the first break starts and when the last break ends are easy to change. There’s even an option for the amount of time in between breaks too!
Features include:

• Alarms for your specific break with countdown timers until your wake up time.
• Share the break schedule with others who have the app by AirDrop or E-mail.

You’ll always know how much time remains until your break is over to ensure you’ll be back to the flight deck on time!

Would like to be able to modify each break

Due to the shorter flights, it would be nice to be able to modify each break so to compile with 117.
Like the IRO gets 1:45, while the PM and PF
Get 2hrs.

Good Start. Basically an update of "Cruise Rest" which was the best crew rest app out there until it quit working with the later IOS. My issue with Flight Breaks is the Ratio sliders wont give you an even 4:30 or 5:00 for the Center Block option. It sets the break at a couple minutes short or long of an even number (i.e. 4:58 or 5:02). If you do manage to set the break at 5:00 and close the app it changes all the end times back to the app's preferred times and thus the alarms change by several minutes. I have seen alarm times change by as much as 6 minutes.

Also, changes don't always stay changed. I entered the wrong flight times on the top of the app and then made corrections. When reopening the app the times sometimes revert to the initial entry. So, you can't always trust the app.

A good start but is still needs some work.
