Description

FlyQ EFB, for both iPad and iPhone, is a top-rated aviation app because it makes your flying easier and safer by thoughtfully integrating powerful features in a way that minimizes the number of screen taps and uses larger fonts to increase readability.  Subscriptions are reasonably priced, starting at just US $69. The amazing new Visual Logbook and Post Flight Playback / Analysis Graphs add a whole new dimension to your flying. The optional new Floq Network can connect you with your friends to "see" and even replay their flights. Floq can be used by CFI's to track student progress and remotely send endorsements. The exclusive Augmented Reality (AR) feature provides situational awareness you'd previously only seen in sci-fi movies.  FlyQ supports more than 20 ADS-B and in-panel devices including the Stratus 3, Avidyne, Dynon, Stratux, Merlin, and more. Our patent-pending Slingshot wireless ChartData system means FlyQ can supply maps, plates, and apt diagrams wirelessly to certified and experimental systems like the BendixKing xVue Touch and AeroVue Touch. Other key features include split screen, 3D synthetic vision, flight recorder / playback / export, plates on the map, more than 4,600 airport diagrams, rich Documents support, extended runways, distance measurement, fuel prices, NOTAMS, wind-optimized flight planning, and plates/diagrams for Mexico and Central America. > Maps Your Way + 2D maps, 3D Syn Vis, Augmented Reality + Sectionals and IFR charts + Photo, road, terrain maps + Radar (Static or animated) + Satellite + Flight Track + Fuel prices + TFRs + Obstacle and terrain avoidance + AIRMETs/SIGMETs + METARs/TAFs + ADS-B traffic + Extended runways with right-pattern indicators + Procedures on map + Rings / Extended Course Line + CAP grid + Heli and Gulf of Mexico charts + Syn Vis includes HITS boxes, EFIS display, TAWS, Obstacles, and AHRS support.

    Believe me, for the price it’s the best EFB app. Foreflight users constantly ask me about this.
  • Gets better & better all of the time

    You can tell that Steve, the CEO, is a pilot and programmer he really understands what is important in an EFB. I do like the flight tracking and the social media aspect of it too. Great work!!!

    I have used FlyQ for about 4 years. I was very happy with it then and even happier with it now. It has been a fabulous addition to my flying. Easy to use. Great display of the information I need. I highly recommend it.
  • Excellence At This Price Point

    As a VFR-only pilot, it does everything I need it to do, and for much less than Foreflight. My only gripe-lette is that I cannot get charts on my Android phone. Talked to Steve about this when I saw him at the AOPA shindig @FDK in May. I hope they eventually act on this. Blue skies, all! Mark Johnson

    Very good product, a lot of thought put into it
  • Bad customer support. Be aware this app is good for USA and surrounding countries only.

    I live in USA but I wanted this app to use it in South America for the coming fire season. I got the surprise that the app does not have data on that region. I contacted customer support for a cancellation and refund the same day. They only communicate through email and the only response they sent me was that they do not control refunds and miss guided me to do it through the apple store. I found that Apple does not manage this subscription. I wrote a second email to customer support explaining and looking for solutions, they never responded back. I feel like a victim of a scam. I would NEVER recommend this app to anyone. I am stuck with a useless $130+ /year subscription service and I can do nothing about it. THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU BUY IT.
  • Great app but boo on social network direction

    Seattle Avionics has really done a great job building a disruptor app in the market dominated by ForeFlight. That said, I think they wasted a bunch of time going in the social network direction while ForeFlight continues to update and release developments actually focused on flying and pilots. Maybe they’re working on that next....
  • The only way to fly

    I have tried ForeFlight, as well as FlyQ. This app is better then having a copilot. Well, unless it’s a blonde co Pilot. You can get lost in all of the ForeFlight pages. FlyQ is intuitive. Easy to come back to your chart. Weather and airport information enlarges at A touch making it easy to read. The app includes tools that you have to pay a premium for in other applications. FlyQ now works with stratus 3 If you have stratus 2S, you’ll have to upgrade or use stratux. I’m not sure about German and others. I wasn’t sure about ADS B But now I wouldn’t fly without it
