For Immediate Release
March 8, 2021
CINCINNATI, OH – Over the past few months, Flight Chain App has continued in its goal of providing more safety information to more pilots, with app updates and new accident case studies published on its blog at www.AheadOfThePowerCurve.com.
It's another step in Flight Chain App's continued effort to make it easier for pilots to learn from accident chains and NTSB reports.
Beginning with its version 1.15 app release on March 8, 2021, Flight Chain App now fully supports Dark Mode for iOS.
"2020 was a crazy year to get through for everyone. But as we get into 2021 and things start to stabilize a bit, we wanted to get back on the development track and make sure Flight Chain App can properly honor the Display & Brightness preference the user has chosen for their iPhone and iPad," said Dan Sobczak, founder of Flight Chain App.
"We also wanted to make sure we've added improvements as needed to ensure the app continues to meet Apple's new privacy changes with iOS 14," Sobczak added.
Throughout 2020 and into 2021, Flight Chain App and its Ahead Of The Power Curve blog continues to feature accident case studies in both general and commercial aviation.
"Our goal with accident case studies is not only to answer the question 'how did this happen?'. More importantly, we want to explore what the critical decision points in the accident chain were that lead to the accident", Sobczak said.
"By exploring those decision points in the accident chain format, we hope these accident case studies can help pilots enhance their decision-making skills, and stay ahead of the power curve."
Recent accident case studies published include:
Beginning with its version 1.14 app update in August 2020, the optional in-app purchase subscription plans (formerly known as 'Plus' and 'Expert') were discontinued.
"User feedback told us that subscriptions were not well received and they limited the usefulness of the app for the majority of users. As a result, they were a hindrance to our goal of providing more safety information to more pilots," Sobczak said.
All features that were previously associated with the former 'Plus' and 'Expert' plans are available to all users who download the app.
For users who did purchase an optional subscription plan, their subscription automatically cancelled at the end of their billing cycle with Apple in September 2020, and they continued to have access to all features in Flight Chain App.

Flight Chain App gives pilots every NTSB aircraft accident report since 1982 in their pocket for convenient easy access. All app features come with the one-time purchase download of Flight Chain App.
The only aviation accident app that helps you see and understand the accident chain from NTSB reports.
