As part of our ongoing safety managment and quality assurance program we have implemented satellight tracking on our aircraft. While enabling us to ensure that our aircraft are operated in accordance with our standard operating procedures it has also given us the ability to rapidly locate our aircraft in the event of an emergency. Pilots are also able to raise attention and communicate with the flight operations department through the use of standard "Mark" messages ensuring that you are never alone even if there is no radio or cell phone signal.
Our students are only a press of a button away from getting assistance should the need arise, and instructors are able to follow their students flights in real time ensuring that all the flight objectives were accomplished.
As clients with passengers on our flights you have access to live tracking, although with less detail, you will be able to see where your flight is and when your guests may be expected to arrive.

iPad Over Heating and Shutting Down in Flight
Source: SMSPRO - Feedback
A number of reports have been made regarding iPads overheating and shutting down while in flight. Cases have been reported for ipads operating of both battery and aircraft power. No Ipad Mini reports have be filed to date.
Pilots are reminded that such devices are for "situational awarness" and are not to be used as a primary source of navigation.
Keeping the device out of the sun and in a well ventilated area will reduce the risk of this happening.
