Why only these 47? Because these are the aircraft that I am currently flying. As I get requests to add others I am doing that. Also, these are some of the most popular GA airplanes.

How it works-------------1. Select an aircraft- 47 are available

2. Select an airport- The App comes with a worldwide airport database

3. Enter conditions- Wind, temperature, pressure altitude, weight and runways- Runway information is filled automatically, if available, or can be entered, there is also an option to define default runways on the Options tab

4. Check the results

Real time METARs for weather------------------------------If the airport has a METAR station the current weather can be obtained by touching the "Get WX" button.Internet access is required to get the weather

Options------------You can select a default Airplane and Airport to be loaded at startup. Weather can also be set to load automatically at startup. Measurement units for Wind speed, temperature, Distance and Weight can be set on the Options Tab.

-------------Please Note-------------

Make sure that any Takeoff and Landing calculations are verified using the manufacturer's approved flight manual or POH.

I have tested these calculations and believe them to be reasonable. However I want to emphasize the need to verify them. I have had some experience building other software that uses METAR data for input. One thing that you may not realize is that METAR data may be entered by hand. That means that it is possible that there could be typos or simply some added information that is not expected by the software. This added information could cause unpredictable results and the user should be alert to this possibility.

----------------About CFI Tools ----------------

I'm a Pilot and a CFII. I build these Apps and other software for my own use.

The Apps have been for sale now for a number of years. They have been enhanced and updated based on listening to the suggestions of the pilots who use them.

Any suggestions for improvement or new apps are always welcomed.

Have a good flight.
