Quote from Lou Drendel, President of the National T-34 Association and Charter Member of the Lima Lima Aerobatic team:
"FlyBy Nav www.skywritersoft.com These folks are not sponsors, but this Palm program is so utilitarian that it deserves mention. For those of you who have GPS, (and, who doesn't?) how would you like to have your GPS database in your Palm? FlyBy Nav puts all US and/or Canadian airports and cities in their program. Operation is as simple as tapping in the city name or identifier of your departure and destination airports. If you put in your airplane data (TAS, fuel burn in gallons per hour, and fuel cost per mile), plus the current winds aloft , you get distance, time en-route and total cost. The same folks make FlyBy E-6B for your Palm, for those of you who want to noodle the numbers further. What, you don’t have a Palm? Come on, get out of the 20th century! The Palm is one of the most revolutionary organizational tools ever invented...."
