To Jack,
Forgive me if you've already gotten a lot of mail on this, but now that you have an iPhone, check out Foreflight.com. Optimized for the iPhone, lots of airport info, charts, weather and DUATS interface. I'm not affiliated with the company, but I like my subscription.

Thanks for the great podcast.

Yes, I have looked at foreflight.com. It seems to be one of the best of the bunch.

Thanks.

Jack,

I remember listening a few weeks ago on the podcast about the legality of using a cellphone while airborne. From what I've found, it looks like the FCC rules makes it illegal....

FCC 22.925
Revised as of October 1, 2007

Sec. 22.925 Prohibition on airborne operation of cellular telephones.

Cellular telephones installed in or carried aboard airplanes, balloons or
any other type of aircraft must not be operated while such aircraft are
airborne (not touching the ground). When any aircraft leaves the ground, all
cellular telephones on board that aircraft must be turned off. The following
notice must be posted on or near each cellular telephone installed in any
aircraft:

The use of cellular telephones while this aircraft is airborne is
prohibited by FCC rules, and the violation of this rule could result in
suspension of service and/or a fine. The use of cellular telephones while
this aircraft is on the ground is subject to FAA regulations.

Also, there is some good info here...

Is this what you and the other Ucap gang have found?

Another website worth mentioning is NavMonster:

http://www.navmonster.com/mobile/

METAR/TAF/radar and all, airport charts, IAPs, FBO information, link to 100LL.com for fuel information.

A very cool and totally free web application nicely formatted for the iPhone. Worth a try, given the price tag! ;)

Of course, you can also use NavMonster in full-screen mode on your PC, and enjoy the same and better functions.

Ciao, Luca
