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.

FlyQ supports more than 20 ADS-B and in-panel devices (Stratus 3, Avidyne, Dynon, Stratux, Merlin, Dual, FreeFlight, L-3, etc.) and is reasonably priced with subscriptions starting at just US $69. Our patent-pending Slingshot wireless ChartData system means FlyQ can supply maps, plates, and airport 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 (Visible or IR) + Flight Track + Fuel prices + TFRs + Obstacle and terrain avoidance + AIRMETs/SIGMETs + METARs/TAFs + Supports 20 ADS-B systems + Extended runways with right-pattern indicators + Procedures on map + Rings / Extended Course Line + CAP grid + Personal Waypoints + Helicopter and Gulf of Mexico charts A tap switches from 2D to 3D Syn Vis to AR and back again.

  • Some slick features, but... Not ready for IFR.

    By Lindy2409
    Kind of like the AOPA weather app by Seattle Avionics and the original Pilot app by Digital Cyclone before Garmin bought the company 4 or 5 years ago. Some things are very clever and innovative, but some essential features, IFR flight planning comes to mind, are cumbersome and frustrating, at best, and unusable at worst. I used Garmin Pilot before Garmin acquired the product and began improving it over several years. At first not bad, but far behind ForeFlight which remains my favorite app by far: great features, easy to use, and very slick and visually attractive. Bottom line: FlyQ is probably OK for VFR flying, but it’s not even close to ForeFlight overall or for IFR flights.

    Using the app for years, got it from AOPA when it first came out. It gets better all the time
  • Excellent site and super easy to use

    I have used this for over 2 years now and I find that it is really easy to use, when on a flight I have all of the information I could possibly use at my fingertips. Well thought out on the way the information is set up and all of the wanted info is at best only 2 taps away.
  • Best aviation software

    By Skyvisions
    2 Taps get all the info you need. Love this software and great company.

    Hi...I am commented on this wonderful app for pilots however there are times when you are out in the middle of no where at a local or private airport where you can’t get current weather or wind direction, though the signal for iPhone or any other cell phone is good.....sometimes I pull up the weather and it says “ not available for download” or something similiar...just a thought for those out in the boonies....I have complained and so have other pilots and sometimes I have to resort to other weather apps... such as MyRadar which gives pilots instant weather updates....this is in my opinion as a user “NOT THE BEST APP FOR PILOTS” Thank you rixy. :)
  • FlyQ EFB from Foreflight

    By Amisra
    I was a long term foreflight user and for a long time had FlyQ installed in parallel to contrast between the two apps. I have to say that I finally let my foreflight subscription expire this month and will use FlyQ solely moving forward. There are still a couple things I miss about foreflight even though there are many areas I like FlyQ better, but at the rate FlyQ is enhancing its product, I anticipate those features will be included very shortly.

    Have used Flyq for over a year and found it very intuitive and easy to use and able to find the information I needed quickly during flights.
  • Best Value

    By Rick
    I have trialed almost every EFB app out there and have found FlyQ the best featured app for the money. It is intuitive and user friendly. I fly with a glass panel and wanted a back up. This fits the bill without breaking the bank with subscription fees and needing a new computer degree to learn to use it.

  • Ifly review

    I live in southern Oregon. This summers wild fires has caused numerous TFR’s to be established in my immediate area. Having these depicted on the sectional charts is extremely helpful. That’s worth the purchase price alone.
