Load a PDF in StageWebView - iOS

I am trying to create an iOS app that loads my companies product catalogue into a webview stage. I cannot figure out after a lot of google how to access this local file, although external files load fine. I'm trying to use the "file:" command. I'm doing this in flash builder.





                              import flash.display.MovieClip;


                              import flash.geom.Rectangle;


                              var webView:StageWebView = new StageWebView();

                              var yOffset = 47


                                             public function FestoKP() {

                                                       webView.stage = this.stage;

       webView.viewPort = new Rectangle( 0, yOffset, stage.stageWidth, stage.stageHeight - yOffset);

       webView.loadURL( "file:///asset/Festo_KP_Catalogue.pdf" );

                                                       closeBtn.visible = true


       public function Close() {

       webView.stage = null;

       closeBtn.visible = false;

    I am on the same boat.  Did you ever find a good working example? -I'm about to give up.

    These guys at "CultCreative" seem to have the ideal solution for FB (it even checks to see if a newer .pdf is on a server)  but my project was built in Flash Pro CS5.5 so again just want to load a few local .pdf files which would be bundled up with the app. 



    I'm still interested in the method you used for iOS if it works well with Air (3.1) for iOS.   However, I am determined to find a way of using Flash Pro CS5.5 to do so.   Thanks! -if you can find it, and think your AS3 from FB would work for me.
