Banyan Pilot Shop to Host MyGoFlight iPad Seminar


Fort Lauderdale, FL – Banyan Pilot Shop will host MyGoFlight’s iPad Takes Flight! EFB Challenge – Connected Flight(TM) Edition Seminar. This seminar is designed to advance the use of iPads and tablets as an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) and a connection to critical information and on-board navigational systems during all phases of flights. The goals of Connected Flight(TM) are to improve safety, reduce stress, simplify flight operations, and increase the number and duration of flights.

This seminar will be presented on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Banyan 5360 NW 20th Terrace, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) Fort Lauderdale, FL. Banyan Pilot Shop is sponsoring the $49 seminar cost and requests interested pilots to register at to ensure a space at no charge.

The seminar will introduce MYGOFLIGHT’s concept of Connected Flight(TM), a combination of iPad gear, electronics and methods designed to provide a pilot of any aircraft a way to significantly improve flight operations. Mastering Connected Flight(TM) will help to reduce accidents due to loss of control and flight into hazardous weather – two of the NTSB’s top areas of focus to improve flight safety.

The seminar will cover using the iPad for pre-flight planning, understanding weather, picking your application, cockpit readiness, re-routing/re-planning, and diversions and emergencies. It will demonstrate what it looks like to have mastered using the iPad in flight.

The instructor, Charles Schneider, CEO of MyGoFlight, requests that participants bring their EFB/tablet/iPad charged, apps loaded, and data updated so you can follow along as real-world scenarios are used to demonstrate what it looks like to have mastered the iPad in-flight. You will be able to test and assess your skills.

Schneider is an instrument rated pilot and a staunch advocate of pilots properly using advanced technology in-flight. His seminar series, iPad Takes Flight!, has been given to thousands of pilots over the last four years. For more information, visit
