Flight Planner 5000 iPad App.:
Flight Planner 5000 is operationally very similar to FP3000, the Windows based software. The functionality is very much the same, screens are mostly the same names, but are different in layout due to the different screen format and the different controls available on the iPad. Specific differences on the iPad are:
1. Alternates are not supported in FP5000.
2. The NAIPS screens have been redesigned in FP5000 for improved usability.
3. There is no support for Uploading to GPS, Abeam waypoints, Generic aircraft types, Flight numbers, the Airfield Register, Metflight, Passenger manifest, NAIPS charts, or Pilot Selection as in FP3000.
4. FP5000 does not automatically handle flight plans that are mixed VFR/IFR plans.
5. The Weather decode (FP5000 Pro AUS & WORLD versions) does not decode time information.
6. No international airport data is supplied with the Australia or the New Zealand FP5000 software. FP5000 World contains EXTENSIVE international aviation data- see below.
7. The Graphical Route Display is implemented as a simple Google Earth based map, without the functionality to add waypoints, airspace or other information specifically from FP5000.
