Sporty’s: CloudAhoy offers free app again


Sporty’s published a review of CloudAhoy Free, a service which we have announced recently.

A quote:

“Pilots can download the app free and use all of its features for 35 days. An account is required, but no credit card is. After 35 days, pilots can still use the logging features of the app, but many of the high end debrief features require the subscription.”

Simple Flight Radio: an Interview

On 4/27/2014 I (Chuck) was a guest on the weekly Simply Flight Radio show.

Simple FlightThe interview is in Simple Flight’s archive.

My hosts, Al Waterloo and Marc Epner, were professional, funny and knowledgeable. Turns out that they are also long-time CloudAhoy users and fans.  I was on the air for about 50 minutes, starting 25 minutes into the show.

A quote from Simple Flight’s writeup:

As guest audio technician, Trevor Wesolowsky stated, “CloudAhoy will save me two lessons over the course of my instrument training.” Now that’s value!

AIN: making deviations easy to spot

AIN_futureAIN has recently produced a report, The Future of Pilot Training.  It’s a thorough report (17 pages), and a great read.

One of the topics is recurrent training for business aviation pilots. To debrief flights, the article mentions sophisticated Flight Data Monitoring systems, available in high-end aircraft, and low-cost hardware from companies like Appareo which needs to be installed in the aircraft. They continue (page 5):

An even lower-cost solution is available from Apple iPad developer CloudAhoy. […] The debrief view shows graphical views of each maneuver performed, as well as overlays of charting information such as IFR approaches, making deviations easy to spot.
