Premiere Charts is an EFB (Electronic Flight Bag) app that defies the belief that you have to pay for costly subscriptions to aviation data. Many general aviation pilots do all of their flying in the area of one or two charts. Why should they have to pay a subscription for ALL the charts for the United States?
With Premiere Charts, users pay for only the charts they need and, in many cases, end up paying far less then they would have with a pricy subscription with another app.
The best part: Premiere Charts is FREE to try. Check it out now!
