AltitudeAlert is the first GPS altitude based alerting app for General Aviation pilots using the iPad or iPhone.

Designed with the IFR pilots in mind, AltitudeAlert provides a capability once only allowed to those with a panel mounted altitude preselector, but at a fraction of the price.


APP FEATURES:

• Never again worry about searching for a piece of paper to write down and remember your altitude clearances.

• GPS Altitude based alerting!!! NO SEPARATE BAROMETRIC PRESSURE DEVICE REQUIRED.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Altitude Alert uses a special algorithm to correct for the GPS altitude error that increases with the increase of altitude.

• Altitude Alerting and Monitoring.

• Alerting for supplemental oxygen use for both pilot and passengers.

• GPS accuracy monitoring.

• Pilots that primarily rent aircraft will immediately see the safety benefit in all aircraft that they rent.

• Aircraft owners will see the safety benefits without the high cost of adding a panel mounted altitude preselector or a separate iPad connected barometric pressure sensor.


*** AltitudeAlert is available SEPARATELY for iPhone or iPad in the App Store.  ***
