For Top Selling iPad App, NBAA2013 Is All About Networking and Partnerships

October 24, 2013

Hilton Goldstein founded his software company in 2003 because he was flying Angel Flight missions and needed a weight and balance mobile app on his phone. The nonprofit group arranges flights on business airplanes for needy medical patients traveling to treatment centers.

“They’d tell me I would be flying a child with a pillow and the day of the flight, the child would show up with their mom, their dad and a big suitcase,” said Goldstein. “So I wanted to do a quick weight and balance calculation standing on the runway before I took off.”

Today, Hilton Software has half a dozen employees, is expanding rapidly and is the publisher of WingX Pro7, the top-selling aviation app for the iPad. A moving map platform with full weather, WingX was the first iPad app to add ADS-B connectivity, incorporate an attitude indicator and debut the features its best known for: its split screen and synthetic vision.

With the system, operators can view an IFR sectional moving map in one pane, next to a synthetic vision moving map with 3D terrain.

This is the second year Goldstein has exhibited at NBAA’s Convention, and he came back “because of the networking. It’s one of the big advantage of NBAA’s show,” he said. “I’d love to spend more time in the booth, but it’s great to get out on the floor and speak to other companies. That networking really springboards us into the next year, because it leads to new partnerships.”
