Do you just feel bored on board the airplane? Or, perhaps, you love to fly and just want to learn more about the aviation and understand it better? SkyGuru provides passengers with detailed explanations of everything happening in flight in real time, and keeps you busy on board. ---------- Imagine sitting next to a pilot who could explain every sound, every turn, every sensation you are feeling, notified you about any upcoming turbulent areas, and just turned your flying experience into a conscious process. SkyGuru – is your personal guide in the world of aviation. SkyGuru was created by a professional pilot and fear of flying therapist Alex Gervash. The app receives information about your flight from professional aviation sources used by airlines. Next, SkyGuru combines the data from your iPhone sensors and the program algorithms to recognize flight stages and accompanies you the entire journey. It supports, teaches, comments on, and explains everything that’s going on during the flight, all in real time and in a flight mode. ---------- Available for free: - Aviation weather forecast and its explanations for departure and arrival airports. - Turbulence forecast for the shortest route between two airports. Available with flights purchases: NEW! Interesting facts about the points of interest that you are flying over; NEW! Offline map, showing an approximate location of your airplane and route. This location is calculated and does not require GPS or internet. NEW! Video course by Alex Gervash - SkyGuru’ founder, that will decrease any fear of flying (on flights >1,5 hrs). NEW! GIF images illustrating how airplane mechanisms work in real time. NEW! Seat recommendations on board according to aircraft’s sunny / shadow side and a possibility to see a beautiful sunset / sunrise. - Forecasts of most turbulent areas en route, including approximate time of entry into and duration of each. - Description of weather conditions at the departure and arrival airports and explanations of how they may affect your sensations. - Calculation of the actual flight time considering current winds already 24 hrs prior to your flight - Real time explanations of most sounds and “dipping / falling through” sensations which could worry the passengers. - Warnings about higher probability for going around due to current weather conditions. - Turbulence graph and current G-force values created by turbulence, as well as their difference from the overloads that the airplane is meant to withstand. - Flight speed and altitude, given a stable GPS signal (usually, available at a window seat). - Airplane’s nose positions relative to the horizon and airplane’s maximum bank angles when entering a turn. - 3D airplane model of its relative position in space considering banks and turbulence. - Notification about expected manoeuvres soon after take-off and shortly before landing. - Explanations of cabin procedures that passengers often wonder about, such as: “why does the light blink,” “why do we open window blinds”. All in real time. - Unique helpful methods and exercises that to assist passengers in overcoming fear and making their flight more comfortable. --------- IMPORTANT NOTES! 1. Speed and altitude are only available with GPS signal. 2. The app is designed to be used ONLY on a REAL flight. 3. If you have any questions, we are always happy to assist 24/7..

    Originally purchased Sky Guru Pro and had no issues with the app. This version crashes and reloads when I am on the plane. Once airplane mode is enabled, it is completely unable to reload my flight information.
  • Amazing coping with flight anxiety

    I always think I’m dying or I’m going to die on the plane. Take off, mid air, and landing. Especially when there is turbulence, I feel sick to stomach from anxiety. I’ve flying since I was little I know flight is safe but it never feels that way. I tried SkyGuru and it is frustrating you can use the phone but when there is any kind of turbulence and angle change, I can look down and know what angle/speed/direction/tilt/altitude. It really calms my anxiety down to know that what I’m feeling is it is what I feel but I can find a reason for the sensation. Also knowing small sounds on the plane that I didn’t even know was very informative and I trust the aircraft more. I didn’t panic because I know what was happening. Knowledge is the key to my anxiety coping. I know logically flying is safe travel but my anxiety disagrees and sometimes medication is not enough. I will be flying every time with this app!!

    I've tried everything from videos to books to what not to deal with flights throughout the years.. but nothing came remotely close to this life changing app. It puts you back in control during the flight- you know exactly what is happening at every single moment. The turbulence forecast is extremely accurate (in the paid version that I have) and you know exactly what you will feel and when. I can't recommend this enough for people with flight anxiety. It will truly change your life.

    I am a frequent, but anxious flyer. I Downloaded 1 flight with SkyGuru and have the following feedback Good: From Pushback until the begginning of descent was pretty spot on. Takeoff was perfect. As things happened in the plane, the app gave a notification and an update. I liked the constant reinforcement and practicality of turbulence- that was very helpful. The turbulence meter was pretty good at predicting chop, I understand its not perfect, but this was reasonably close. OK: Finding a stable surface is easier said than done, i totally understand the logic but its not practical to keep your phone on your armrest the entire flight. Bad: i sent a customer service email 3 days ago and sadly am yet to recieve a reply. UPDATE: AFTER WRITING THE REVIEW THE DEVELOPER REACHED OUT AND IS 100% DEDICATED TO REPAIRING ANY BUGS WITH THE APP. Landing was not nearly as detailed as takeoff. Even after manually resetting 3x, the app thought i landed when at 10k feet. The takeoff and climb was so spot on, that i was disapointed that the landing was such a bust. The time was consistantly off. We landed about 20 minutes after the time predicted. All other flight apps and Jet blue said we'll land at 520, but this app insisted we'd be in at 505. We landed at 520. Overall a GOOD experience. I think once the app learns a bit more it'll be a really good app.
