LAS VEGAS, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AC-U-KWIK, the leader in global business aviation information, today announced the launch of the new AC-U-KWIK App for iPad and iPad mini, in both North American and Worldwide versions. AC-U-KWIK is part of Penton's Business Aviation Market Group a multi-channel unit comprised of the top brands and value-creating tools serving the full spectrum of business aviation operations, manufacturing and business development.

The new AC-U-KWIK App provides pilots with a cost-effective and convenient way to carry essential flight information, including the accurate airport and FBO/handler listings that AC-U-KWIK is known for highly detailed clearance information for worldwide destinations, plus a wealth of operational data: FBO location diagrams, FAA charts, approach/departure maps & procedures, weather forecasts, NOTAMs, aircraft maintenance & fuel providers, catering companies, and ground transportation.

In addition to this essential data, the new AC-U-KWIK App is equipped with features to help pilots prepare and manage flight details. Pre-flight planning is simplified with geo-referenced mapping (Google Maps) and a custom distance calculator. With the bookmark feature, pilots can save airports for reference on future flights. A virtual scratch pad is available for jotting down flight schedules, frequencies, and other quick-reference notes.

Frank Craven, managing director of the Business Aviation Group at Penton, says, "The new AC-U-KWIK App is a leap forward for our business aviation product line. It runs on the same data that professional pilots have come to rely upon from AC-U-KWIK. The biggest advantage of the new app is that we are delivering it on the platform that many of our clients are using at an affordable price point. Now all pilots can have AC-U-KWIK on their iPad for every flight."
