Flight Analysis - Flight Log Analysis Program for Pocket PCs and Handheld PCs

Overview
Why wait until you get home to view your flight log?  This handy utility can open any IGC flight log file. It will also open the non-IGC format files generated by Henryk's GPS_LOG WinCE software.  The software calculates statistics and displays several interesting graphs including a flight trace, a barogram, and a bar graph of lift vs. altitude.  Task analysis features are also available.  It's a very good value at only $24.95.

New Features in Version 2.1
Version 2.1 offers new task analysis features.  You can see the new data in the screen captures above.  If the IGC flight log file contains a flight declaration, Flight Analysis can calculate the task distance, speed, etc.  If the IGC file does not contain a flight declaration you can manually create a text file containing the task waypoints and Flight Analysis can use it to analyze the task.  The file format for the task data file is described in the Flight Analysis.htm.

Help File
When you unzip the flight analysis installation files onto your PC, you will find a file called "Flight Analysis.htm".  It is a help file describing the task file format used by Flight Analysis.

Licensing

The downloadable files below will allow you to open 5 IGC files or operate for 10 days (whichever comes first) before a valid password file must be transferred to the Pocket PC.  This password file is obtained by purchasing a license for the software.  The password is tied to the "Owner" name of the Pocket PC or Handheld PC.  When you place your order, you will be prompted for the "Owner Name" entered into your Windows CE device.  Please be certain to enter the exact spelling of the name entered into the device.  A password file will be e-mailed to you within 24 hours.

Free Updates
Purchasing a license entitles you to free unlimited minor software updates and one major update.  Minor updates include bug fixes and minor feature enhancements.  Major updates are done when significant enhancements have been added, which warrant an upgrade charge.  All owners of licenses are entitled to a 50% discount on major updates.  For example, if version 3 had just become available, licensed users would be able to purchase the new version for 50% of the new price.  If the software is selling for $24.95, it would only cost $12.48 to upgrade to the latest version.  That money goes to help compensate the programmer for the effort that went into developing the new features.

Downloads
