FlightPrep, a division of Stenbock & Everson, Inc., joined the iPad KABOOM! Community Project as a premier sponsor earlier this week. FlightPrep helped gain industry-wide attention for the project as an early supporte, and as one of the project’s leading sponsors, FlightPrep is donating an iPad2 to be used for DO-160 rapid decompression testing. During the test, the iPad will be operating using FlightPrep’s latest release of iChart 2.0.
"FlightPrep is proud to sponsor the iPad KABOOM! project with PaperlessCockpit.com. Since the iPad was announced, FlightPrep has been working hard to make our applications and services available on this revolutionary platform,” said Travis Cannon, FlightPrep’s Director of Engineering and Spokesperson. “Our goal is to help make electronic flight bag technology available to every pilot.”
The iPad2 donated by FlightPrep, along with a one year subscription to iChart 2.0 and a copy of the DO-160 decompression test certification, will be auctioned off at a charity event this fall.
“FlightPrep’s generous donation of the iPad2 hardware and its continued support of iPad KABOOM! is a major step forward to successful completion of PaperlessCockpit.com’s first Community Project”, said Curtis Oden, Managing Editor of PaperlessCockpit.com. “We hope the iPad KABOOM! project can serve as a future model for collaboration across the industry.”
Including the value of the donated iPad2 and contributions from donors from all around the world, the iPad KABOOM! Community Project has raised about seventy percent of the funds needed to complete the project.
“The iPad KABOOM! project will help the aviation community get even closer to a truly paperless cockpit,” said Cannon. “Please join us in supporting Paperless Cockpit and the iPad KABOOM! project."
