We released an update to the Segment Info of approach segments.
In the landing screenshots on the right and below we can see at a glance:
The runway is depicted as a thick black line.
The pilot landed on EPPO RWY 28.
The touchdown was at 1506’. Till that point the runway is displayed to-scale.
The runway remaining was 6710’.
Over the threshold the aircraft (SR22T) was at MSL=346′ and airspeed of 86 KIAS.
The short approach was stabilized: on the glidepath, with stable airspeed.
To display the Segment Info of the Final we clicked the icon in the segment list. Note the runway depiction in thick line on the lower-right. Click the picture below for details. To check the airspeed and altitude over the threshold, we dragged the time crosshair to the runway threshold.
Along with the depiction of the runway, Segment Info graphs have been enhanced in these ways:
The x-axis along shows the distance from the runway threshold, or in the case of a missed approach the point at which the missed approach started.
The touchdown point is labeled with the distance from the threshold to touchdown, as well as the length of runway remaining after the touchdown.
The airport and runway number are shown just above the runway.
The accuracy of determining the location of the touchdown point depends on the data quality. An external GPS with good sky visibility will yield better accuracy than logging with your phone or tablet’s internal GPS. For best accuracy, import the flight data from your EFIS. See this.
We released a revised version of the Flights tab, with two important improvements.
The layout of the Flights tab is now adjustable
The Flights tab consists of two parts: the flight list (left) and the selected flight’s details (right). A new handle, on the vertical border between the two parts, allows you to close or open the selected flight’s details. Click or tap the handle to toggle open/close.
This adjustable layout is especially handy on narrow displays such as the iPad when you want to view the Remarks fields of all the flights in full. Reminder: you can always search for flights with specific text in the Remarks (as well as search other flight parameters) using Search on the upper-left.
This functionality is available on the iPad in CloudAhoy app, or in Safari. It is also available on the iPhone in Safari; it is not yet available in the iPhone’s CloudAhoy app.
Decimal display of air and ground times (in addition to H:M:S)
Useful for logbook entries – the Air and Ground times are now displayed in decimal values as well.
What is CloudAhoy 5.0? It’s a new generation of our power debrief tool, available to all CloudAhoy users – whether you debrief on the web (Windows, Mac, Android, Linux) or in our iOS apps.
New Approach analysis: check how stabilized your approach was
Our enhanced flight analyzer detects, computes and displays approach information.
New VFR / IFR charts, worldwide
We partnered with SkyVector to provide high quality and up to date charts.
Redesigned Flights tab
Including a powerful flight search, thumbnails, and manuever list per flight.
We also released a new version of our iOS app, supporting pilot roles: you can now specify the role of each pilot (e.g., co-pilot, CFI) and whether he or she are the PIC. A new version of our Android app is in the making.
Decluttering is useful for focusing on specific segments of a flight. It is especially helpful in training and currency flights, which tend to have multiple maneuvers and complex flight paths. We recently redesigned our declutter tool, integrating it with the tools in the left panel.
