This app contains the 2019-20 aircraft ground de/anti-icing fluid holdover times (HOTs) and related guidance as published by Transport Canada and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
New Features for 2019-20:
METAR: Enable METAR functionality to access METAR reports through the HOT Calculator. Make sure to tap Refresh to get the latest report (METAR does not update automatically) and tap the airport name to find a different location.
EVENT LOG: Each time you start the HOT Clock an event will be created with all pertinent event details. Access this data in the More tab. Events can be exported via email either individually or in aggregate. They can also be deleted. Note: Event log data is stored locally on your device.
DUAL FUNCTIONALITY: HOT Calculator calculates HOTs for current conditions based on weather/fluid info entered by the user. PDF Viewer allows navigation of HOT guidance documents in individual PDF files.
HOT CLOCK: Shows time elapsed since fluid application; progress wheel indicates status of HOT; alerts are provided when lower (optional) and upper HOTs are reached.
CHANGEABLE SETTINGS: Customize your authority, HOT table type (standard or adjusted), HOT alerts (lower, upper, both) and time zone (local or UTC). Enable or disable METAR functionality.
Developed by APS Aviation Inc., the company responsible for developing and managing the holdover time table data on behalf of Transport Canada and the FAA for the last two decades.
