Bendix/King has announced that its myWingMan application is now available for download from iTunes. The app is an all-in-one navigation, weather and flight information tool that combines moving map, weather and synthetic vision in one package with a simple user interface that does not use multiple menus for on-screen navigation. “We didn’t set out to simply design another application for the GA marketplace,” said Kevin Gould, president of Bendix/King. “The myWingMan app sets a new standard for what pilots can expect from future mobile flight planning and navigation tools.” Bendix/King’s Jeff Simon took us through the app in this video.
Bendix/King introduced myWingMan at AirVenture Oshkosh and announced last week at AOPA Summit that it had submitted the app for review by Apple. Apple took less than two weeks to approve the app. The app features a two- or three-way split screen that can be easily sized and manipulated with touch controls. The information available on the app can be synchronized with panel avionics like the Bendix/King KSN 770 using the Aspen Connected Panel system.
