“We found a gap in this niche market; there was a need for an mobile application for pilots that would be useful from training and continue with them through their career,” said iApps managing director Rick Hoy.
The app combines an array of functions that were previously built as individual apps
“Being a trainee pilot myself, I appreciated the need for an all in one app that was user friendly and covered all the flight intelligence I needed,” said Mr Hoy.
“One major benefit of FlightBOX is the personalised logbook, there is no other logbook on the market that can be customized.”
Already a hit on iTunes and downloaded by thousands of aviation workers around the world, FlightBOX is already being used as an educational resource for training and instruction. As of 2011, there are on average 3 pilots per 1000 of the population and this figure is set to slump in the coming years due to the current workforce gradually retiring.
