That's why they offer a free trial!!!!


I live in both a the UK and the US and thus do a lot of flying in each. As many have stated this app isn't exactly for the UK, but come on guys why are you giving it a 1 Star rating??? It even says in the description it's for US Airports and US charts with only some information on MAJOR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS! For all those who don't read the description they even let you have a FREE 30 day trial to make sure it works for you! (Remember as well the GPS will only work if you have an iPad with GPS duh!!! Only 3G iPads have GPS, otherwise you need to buy a GPS receiver which works with your iPad)

Anyway for those of you who know and fly in the US system you will understand just how invaluable this app really is. 5* App which I would recommend any pilot flying in the US has a look at!


Good Morning General

Not for the world outside of the USA due to the limited or non-existence of the advertised features in here, blighty.

Other thing equally annoying, not actually free as it needs subscription. I used to be able to open up this app but after the latest update last month, Oct 2010 it asked for a new user agreement and will not launch unless I pay up the subs rather than letting me check up the new update it contained. Wrong.
Down to 2 stars for the use and feature but accessible only inside the subscription plan otherwise max of 4 as visual is cluttered.

Don’t buy if you’re not in the USA/Canada

Lawrence Dudley

I was after the VFR charts for Europe and it prompted me to buy a USA subscription to do so which I did, only to find that the only maps available in the UK were grainy terrain and street map ones you’d find in Google/Apple Maps.

Have asked for a refund.

Three stars because it shows promise and if I managed to fly 3,500 miles over the pond I’d probably find it useful.
