What are people using for performance calculator programs
for the Challenger 300 and are any available on the I-Pad?

Use the FMS, why anything else?

We use APG for runway analysis, performance and W&B. Their iPad app is great.

I assume you are joking. :)

Slightly, the FMS, in a dual installation is certified as primary data, meaning, speeds and distances are usable without reference to the AFM. We do use APG runway analysis for weights and obstacle clearance. But, back to question, why use an outside program when the FMS is approved?

So that we can get out of ASE with enough fuel to fly further than Denver.

The FMS will only give you tab data climb gradient, same data as the AFM.
A runway analysis will give you comprehensive runway analysis which accounts for surrounding terrain. If you use AFM climb gradient to ensure you are meeting a SID climb gradient you are mixing apples and oranges......

Welp, for me, by the time I get the FMS up and running, the planning part is over ;)

By CP Calc on the Sovereigns.
Thanks,

I completely agree, I said we use APG runway analysis, but for speeds we just use the FMS unless the APG analysis has a V1noted.
