Here is me using it while inputting directions in real time. Your example audio made it a little clunky since I had to switch to QWERTY keyboard to type Sheltair so I included two other examples.
It really isn't that difficult once you get used to it!
Did you miss the part where I said I did simulator flying for years before actual flight school? Just because I wasn't a real pilot then doesn't mean I didn't try to stay up to date with new technology/apps that could help pilots in general. Plus all of the apps and tablet uses were something I...
Absolutely! I've used it more for simulator practice at the moment since a lot of it is above my skill level. But several other pilot friends have tried it and like it. I also use it whenever I am flying copilot with them and try to follow along with inputs
You do make an excellent point. I will certainly give your challenge a try! I think the obvious way user's will increase their speed with the app is to do some practice like you just suggested and thoroughly know the layout of the app. But even then, I can still see your point being valid
I wouldn't say it is writing that all out longhand since it has many keys and shortcuts programmed with common phrases. It takes a little while to learn the layout though but once you do you are good!
Here's a video that is close to the scenario you proposed
I found some videos on the website of inputting examples for taxing, approaches, and departures, hopefully that gives you an idea of the process
