Portland, Oregon (February 12, 2019) – Lightspeed Aviation, the leading innovator in aviation headsets and enhanced pilot connectivity is pleased to announce the release of FlightLink 3.0, a free, proprietary app that allows for inflight recording and adds enhanced functionality to all Lightspeed headsets.
What’s new with the update
FlightLink 3.0 is completely rewritten for iOS 12, (but still works with older versions) and includes an improved user experience, faster scrolling, and improved file management and sharing. Using iPhone X/S, XR, XS Max, and all iPad Pro models, pilots can now save notes for future reference, visualize recordings using a new recording details screen, access recordings through the iOS Files app, easily transfer files via AirDrop, and share recordings and notes using iOS sharing services.
Additionally, FlightLink 3.0 now allows users to create a permanent archive of all flight communications for post-flight briefing and training, store a recording library on an iPhone or iPad, and access them with the iOS Files app or iTunes on a Mac or PC. Using Apple Pencil or Pencil 2 the user can also take handwritten notes on supported iPads.
“We are pleased to release this updated version of our popular FlightLink app, said Teresa De Mers, Executive Vice President of Lightspeed Aviation. “We’ve improved the user experience, overhauled the audio functionality, and introduced a more intuitive platform to enhance the functionality of our current headsets and provide an up-to-date platform for any future development of our products.”
About the FlightLink app
FlightLink 3.0 is perfect for any pilot flying with an iPad or iPhone who wants to capture and retrieve in-flight communication. It’s a powerful tool for flight training at all levels because of its ability to capture the intercom communication of instructional flights. The app works seamlessly with newer Lightspeed headsets to record and playback incoming and outgoing communications.
Using FlightLink 3.0, pilots can record all activity over the intercom, including inbound and outbound transmissions, and in-cabin conversation and instantly play back ATC calls or other communications from any point within the last two minutes of recording.
