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.

    Use it on iPhone and iPad, on the ground and in the air. Keeps getting better.
  • Stop comparing FLY Q with ForeFlight

    ForeFlight is a much better program from the use of the EFB to Online Flight planning. Comparing FlyQ to ForeFlight is like comparing a Timex to a Rolex. They both tell time but one is cheaper than the other. I subscribed to FlyQ because it was much cheaper than renewing my ForeFlight subscription. I am finding out that you get what you pay for. I’ll continue to use FlyQ for now since I have paid for it, but I’m going back to ForeFlight.
  • Best Aviation nav app.

    I been using FlyQ for many years now for VFR flights to some very remote locations and I’m continually impressed. The attention to detail and constant improvements make me glad I chose Seattle Avionics. And, you can’t beat the price.
  • Great but watch out

    I have been an enthusiastic user for several years, after being turned off by the overly complex competitive products. Now FlyQ version 4 has started down the path to “bloatware”. Features that are of no use in the cockpit are being added. This will likely create the chance for getting into the wrong parts of the program at the worst times. It will increase the iPad resources needed to run the program. Descending into the bloatware morass has been the fate of many successful applications like Microsoft Word. I will continue using Version 3, but I doubt that I will be able to do so for long. I hope a light version like Version 3 will be made available without the superfluous features.

    Outstanding product. Great platform IFR or VFR. Information is clear and easily accessible. Highly recommended for the beginner and the seasoned professional.

    I’ve had this app for several years now. I really like it as a less expensive alternative to ForeFlight. However, it has ONE MAJOR POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS FLAW. The translated METAR and TAFs often do not include rain and thunderstorms. The raw versions do. I’ve gotten myself into some nasty weather a couple of times because of this! I sincerely started to doubt my weather interpreting skills until I finally figured out this discrepancy. I’ve approached the company on this, and they say they’re looking into it. Check it out and BE CAREFUL! A side note.....the desktop version does not seem to have this flaw.
  • Would be nice if it worked

    Just downloaded this app to try it out, and I want you to create a login for their subscription. Well enough, but every time I try to create a subscription, the app response cannot connect to the Internet. I’ve tried it on cellular only and Wi-Fi only on the connection that I can easily verify is actually connected to the Internet, in the app still gives me that message. Looks like I’m going to quickly delete this right after downloading since I can’t even try it out.

    I am using this program and paid for it. During flight or on my desk flight planning the FlyQ program keeps crapping out on me. I think that I will go back to ForeFlight, with which program I had NO issues at all. I won’t advise this program to anybody.
  • Great Product - Great Price

    Great company support. I especially like that they support Stratux (That’s ADS-B receiver that the experimental pilots started). Program works great.
  • Great value, excellent program

    I demo’d a number of EFB programs (including Foreflight) before settling on FlyQ. I’ve found FlyQ to be an excellent program and intuitive to use. Perhaps Foreflight would have a slight edge for professional pilots but as a private pilot I find FlyQ has everything I need.
