Proven ROI for Charter Fleet Operators

The Bad Elf Wombat solution brings the convenience of wireless flight database updates to every turbine pilot, even those flying with older avionics. Now you can perform database updates using only your iPad or iPhone, in the cockpit, anywhere in the world. Ditch the laptop and stop hunting for Wi-Fi at the FBO or hotel. No avionics to upgrade, and Wombat works with your existing OEM chart and data subscriptions.

Wombat App for iOS
The Wombat app allows you to download OEM database updates to your iPhone or iPad, over cellular or Wi-Fi. When you're ready to program your USB or SD cards, you'll connect via Wi-Fi to your Wombat accessory.
Bad Elf Wombat Accessory
The Wombat accessory gives apps access to USB and SD media, since there's no way to plug these directly into an iOS device. The Wombat hardware can handle the variety of media supported by avionics today.


Simple to Use

The Wombat app is designed for simplicity and ease-of-use, and uses a checklist flow for most operations. And like all Bad Elf products, the Wombat accessory hardware “just works”.

Step 1: Download
Using the Wombat app, log into your Honeywell or Rockwell Collins account and download updates to your iPhone or iPad over cellular or Wi-Fi
Step 2: Connect
Connect your iPhone or iPad to the Wombat’s Wi-Fi network.
Insert your USB drive or SD card into the Wombat.
Step 3: Transfer
Use the Wombat app to transfer pending updates to the card.
Remove the card, insert into your avionics, and fly!
