App Store Description

Attitude Indicator and other key flight instruments on your iPhone or iPad, using the iPhone 4 and iPad2's built-in gyros and GPS.

Key features:
-Attitude Indicator using solid state gyros in your iPhone, iPad2 or iPod Touch, with extreme attitude chevrons to guide you back to a safety if you find yourself in an unusual attitude
-"Glass cockpit" Primary Flight Display using digital tapes for Speed, Altitude, Heading, Vertical Speed, Rate of Turn and slip indicator
-Position relative to nearest airport in plain English (convenient for ATC position reports), with communication frequency where available
-Fully configurable display, with landscape mode and choice of aviation or metric units
-Continuous auto-calibration feature adapts to different airplane environments and flying conditions

IMPORTANT: Engine vibration can cause problems: mount the device such that it is least exposed to vibration, 'level' the attitude indicator in level flight (tap the AI center) and allow time for it to auto-calibrate while flying level.

DEVICE LIMITATIONS: For iPhone3GS and iPad 1 with GPS, attitude is derived from GPS instead of gyro sensors, because those are only available in the iPhone4, the iPad2 and the new iPod Touch. For iPads and iPods without GPS, we recommend plugging in an external GPS such as Bad Elf, because without GPS there is no valida altitude, speed, heading or position information available, and attitude indication will be degraded.
