  1. iGoDispatch for IXEG's Boeing-733

    iGoDispatch has been updated to version 1.15. It is now compatible with iOS 11 and the latest plane's update. The major change includes revised fuel and time calculation. The images show how accurate the fuel calculation is. On the first image, the application calculates the required trip burn fuel for a flight between CYYZ and KMIA (1074 nm) at FL330 based on the 280/.74 climb and .74/250 descent. The landing weight is 44,411 kg (ZFW of 43,486 kg and the final reserve fuel of 925 kg). The calculated fuel is 5,905 kg. On the second image, the application calculates fuel for a flight between KSFO and PANC (1752 nm) using Long Range Cruise Step Climb (>1000 nm) and the same loading parameters. The required fuel is calculated at 9,216 kg. Both images also include fragments of the Boeing-733 FPPM demonstrating fuel planning charts for the above trips. Note that the iGoConnect plugin must be updated to version 2.21.
  2. iGoDispatch for CRJ-200 (iPad)

    Within the next 24 hours, an update for the application to version 3.0 should be available on AppStore. This is a major update that includes completely rewritten code. Although testing has been performed in the last couple of weeks, it is possible that the application may still have bugs. Please let me know if you find any. Some of the changes include: Added compatibility with iOS11; Revised UI; Added flight planning using SIDs, STARs, and Approaches; Added downloading current winds aloft from the NOAA servers; Fixed bugs. If someone is not familiar with the new UI, you may read the manual available here (not from the application yet, this will be fixed later): http://igoapp.ca/resources/files/igodispatch_crj200_manual_pad_v5.pdf http://igoapp.ca/resources/files/igodispatch_crj200_manual_phone_v5.pdf Enjoy!

    This is a problem with the 4K resolution. I had exactly the same problem and had to give up on it. Set it back to 1080p and it will work just fine. We are not there yet with UHD...
  4. iGoDispatch for Saab-340A

    The iOS application is currently not fully compatible with iOS 11 and opening the Performance panel may crash the application. I am working on solving the issue. Cheers.

    Zero Fuel Weight is a dry operating weight plus payload ( passengers, cargo, snacks, booze). So, the ground service menu simply restricts the payload from being less than .... whatever the difference is. )))

    I just noticed that PFPX uses 33,549 kg as DOW for the plane, whereas IXEG's DOW is slightly different (32,831 kg, according to my notes). I guess, one of the reasons to use iGoDispatch for flight planning for this particular plane. Does anyone know what SimBrief has as DOW? cheers!

    A short video showing a few features of the desktop application that is currently in development.
  9. Trim Power TO setup

    There is an application for iOS called iGoDispatch that does exactly that. It even updates your CG dynamically during your flight. Although, it is not free. There should be a desktop version available later this year.
  10. iGoDispatch for IXEG's Boeing-733

    The application has been updated to version 1.10 and the update is available on AppStore. The main feature of the update is an ability download global winds aloft and temperature information from NOAA. Since all major X-Plane weather engines, that I am aware of, use NOAA meteorological data, the application allows you to plan your flight with greater precision whatever engine you use. There is also an option to use custom winds data from X-Plane or set your own in the application. In addition, a few other issues have been addressed, including but not limited to: displaying runways for certain STARs incorrectly (what okernel was complaining about); retaining your flight path on the map when switching to another application; Destination Runways drop-down menu appearance; improved memory management; etc. There have been some significant but necessary changes made and I hope this will not affect the overall performance. If you feel that the application becomes laggy, try to completely delete it from your iOS device and reinstall from scratch. Unfortunately, working on this update, as well as on an update for my other two applications (JRollon's CRJ and LES's Saab) that is currently underway has put development of the desktop app on hold at least until summer. Hopefully, it is worth it. Cheers.
  11. iGoDispatch for CRJ-200 (iPad)

    The iGoConnect plugin has just been updated to version 2.20.17. The update addresses the following issues: - Fixed a bug when X-Plane crashed under certain conditions during the flight; - Fixed a bug when errors in the Plane Configuration file could cause a crash; - Fixed a bug when some Navigraph data could not be obtained in Linux; - Improved compatibility with X-Plane 11. Removed downloading winds aloft for US (winds.rwx) as this is no longer supported by Laminar. Global winds aloft data is to be downloaded from the iGoDispatch application; - Added compatibility with the newer version of iGoDispatch for CRJ-200 (to be released soon). The update is available here:

    okernel. I am glad it worked. Please keep me in the loop if the problem persists. A new update will be coming soon with an option to download NOAA global winds data. Best.
  14. iGoDispatch for IXEG's Boeing-733

    Aerosoft or Navigraph navdata is included in the iGoConnect plugin. Have you updated it? Please refer to page 7 of the application manual. Let me know if it did not work. Cheers.

    okernel. One of the [cool ] features of the application is dynamic adjustment of CG based on the current weight. The application uses a specific formula to calculate it, and obviously applying the same formula on other planes will produce weird results. )) One thing occurs to me: if people are interested in using the ACARS function for other planes, I could make the CG adjustment optional (with ON by default) in one of the future updates. As soon as I am done with incorporating the real global winds into the application, I could consider it. Cheers.
