OFP as a PDF?

Recommended Posts

Can't see anything in the manual. I can save an OFP to desktop as .txt file but I was wondering if it would be possible to export as a PDF so I can view on my iPad easily?

You can, but you need a Programm like cutePDF, or freePDF installed on your PC.

Hello!

Can you try to include the wind charts in the OFP and "print" it with one of those programs?

I have tried with BullZipPDF, but the wind charts become corrupted. Thanks!

I just tried it with BullZip PDF works a treat thanks!

As for the weather image I didn't add it to the plan, but I did notice a image tab when you sleet it to print with BullZip printer. Maybe you can adjust the values in there to get the images to appear properly?

I used pdf995 and the output is just fine both for the text and images. You can then drop into the ipad and use something like iAnnotate to make your own notes on the plan as you fly.

Integrated PDF export would be nice but I assume the libraries are expensive.

Cheers

The developer of PFPX is a real pilot so you can be sure the PFPX format included already is a realistic one already ;)

I am still sure though that with the time more formats will come.
