Airbus Helicopters asked Xample to design a navigation and mission planning application specifically for Airbus Helicopters. Since Xample is the developer of Air Navigation Pro, a real-time air navigation application for aircrafts, we already had a great level of knowledge and expertise in this field. Together with Airbus Helicopters we worked and discussed different possibilities to develop an application that exactly fits their needs. Helitab relies on the same core technologies and data as Air Navigation Pro. Because Helitab is specially developed for helicopters, its features and functionalities are designed and created to fit the specifications for this kind of aircraft. It has been integrated in a very solid device: The Panasonic Toughpad, which means that Helitab runs on Windows 8. The application and its development comply with the DO178B Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification standard. READ MORE
