Pilot's Companion

Pilot's Companion


This application was inspired by the information and situations I faced during my education as a commercial pilot. I hope you can find it as useful as I wish I had it back then.

Some general and theoretical aviation knowledge is required, which I hope will encourage you to keep learning.

One of the purposes of this app is to make some tedious work as automated as possible, so please drop me a line if you miss any features.
