Aircraft Performance Group

IPREFLIGHT IOS

Advancing Flight Operations for Corporate Aviators

Several of our clients happen to be retired Air Force pilots, including the heads of Sentinel DA, BaseConnect, and Aircraft Performance Group (APG). All of them have bold visions, and entrust Spire Digital with the design and development of their core products. In the case of APG, Spire is helping to bring flight operations engineering best practices and advanced technologies into the corporate aviation market.

Clear for Takeoff

Our work on iPreFlight iOS helps pilots better manage upcoming missions, alter flight paths, perform runway analysis, and monitor engine-out procedures as well as weight & balance. We built the app to operate anywhere in the world, without an internet or data connection, while providing real-time performance data.

Accounting for FAA Regulations

Working closely with the APG team, we utilized existing wireframes and research from interviews with numerous types of pilots to understand their pre-flight procedures and checklists. Designing for FAA regulations requires careful attention, particularly as the rules often change. Because flight planning comes down to the most specific of details, our iOS designs had to mimic that process.

Safe Travels

In the end, the hard work that went into the app paid off through the piece of mind it provides. After all, providing a better understanding of critical flight operations enables a new level of assurance for all aboard.
