Textron’s Cessna releases application to App Store

Posted 9/24/12

PROVIDENCE – Textron subsidiary Cessna Aircraft Co. has released its Citation Performance Calculator – CPCalc – to Apple’s App Store.

The app, which is part of the CESNAV flight planning and performance suite and already available on PC, is available for all current production Citation business jets, as well as many out-of-production Citations.

“The new Cessna CPCalc app unquestionably gives us, as pilots, the ability to maximize the performance of our aircraft in conjunction with a tool like the iPad,” Steve Workman, Cessna’s flight operations manager, said in a statement. “We don’t have to round up, round down, or interpolate the data. The app allows us to demonstrate all our models to their maximum capability.”

The CPCalc maximizes takeoff and landing data and helps pilots determine engine-out performance. The app, which is already FAA-approved for its PC version, is currently in the process of undergoing FAA approval for use on the iPad. It does not require an Internet connection. •
