E6BJA Software Flight Computer App (Apple iOS / Google Android / Online)

May 2022 - Present

The E6BJA Flight Computer is a cutting-edge software-based digital tool that empowers pilots to perform a wide range of aeronautical and flight calculations speedily and easily. This software app has been inspired by the best of two worlds, the ingenious Whiz-wheel (e.g. E6B, CR-1, CRP-1, CRP-5, etc.) and the more modern handheld electronic digital flight computer. The E6BJA software app is designed with an array of features that make it a powerful and efficient tool for aviation enthusiasts. It is a convenient and versatile tool that can be installed on a phone or tablet, providing pilots with the flexibility they need to perform aeronautical calculations.

The E6BJA Flight Computer offers several advantages over the traditional Whiz-wheel. Calculations are simpler, quicker to perform, and have a lower margin of error. The app provides better reproducibility and is less error-prone than its traditional counterparts. Furthermore, it has an intuitive and clear user interface that makes it easy for pilots to navigate and get the calculations they need quickly.

My article, Aiming Higher - Building the World's Most Comprehensive Flight Computer App, E6BJA, discusses the development of this tool.

AirWeatherNOTAM Software App (Google Android)

September 2023 - Present

AirWeatherNOTAM is a state-of-the-art aerodrome weather and NOTAM (NOtices To Air Men) app — developed in Java using the Android Framework — to provide and display aerodrome-specific information readily and intuitively, augmenting existing flight information sources. AirWeatherNOTAM retrieves METARs and TAFs live from the US NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and NOTAMs from the US FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) thereby providing pilots and aviation professionals with a comprehensive picture of essential aerodrome weather and information.

The app employs efficient data retrieval methods and boasts a sleek, user-friendly interface. It seamlessly combines real-time weather updates and NOTAM alerts for aerodromes, ensuring that aviators are not only well-informed but also equipped with data presented in an intuitive, easily digestible manner. With AirWeatherNOTAM, METARs, TAFs, and NOTAMs converge into a unified view, making it indispensable for those in the aviation sector.

Available as an Android app on the Google Play Store.


AirWeatherNOTAM Aviation Weather/NOTAM app

AirWeatherNOTAM employs the following design features:
  • API Integration: Robust integration of the US NOAA for METARs and TAFs and the US FAA for NOTAMs, the app ensures accurate, relevant, and timely data retrieval.
  • Real-Time Data Retrieval: The app utilises asynchronous communications to retrieve real-time METAR, TAF, and NOTAM data, ensuring prompt access without hampering or slowing the user experience.
  • Intuitive User Interface: offering a convenient, and user-friendly experience, making navigation and data interpretation straightforward.
  • Comprehensive Aerodrome Search Facility: Incorporated within the app is an fast and extensive aerodrome search facility that lets users quickly locate specific aerodromes to obtain weather and NOTAMs for.
  • Data Caching: AirWeatherNOTAM employs local caching of recent data, reducing the need for redundant network calls.
  • Responsive Layout: Regardless of the device in use, be it a smartphone or a tablet, the app's layout adapts seamlessly, ensuring an optimal viewing experience.
