*** This is a LEGACY version of AltitudeAlert for iPad and will no longer be supported with future iOS updates. Please purchase AltitudeAlert for iPad V2. ***


AltitudeAlert is the first GPS altitude based alerting app for the iPad. AltitudeAlert allows you to use the full capabilities of your preferred iPad EFB Navigator but with the added functionality of a virtual panel mounted altitude preselector with alert capability.

Designed with the IFR GA pilot in mind, AltitudeAlert provides a capability once only allowed to those with a panel mounted altitude preselector, but at a fraction of the price.


• Never again worry about searching for a piece of paper to write down and remember your altitude clearances.

• GPS Altitude based alerting!!! NO SEPARATE BAROMETRIC PRESSURE DEVICE REQUIRED. Yes, you read that correctly. Altitude Alert uses a special algorithm to correct for the GPS altitude error that increases with the increase of altitude.

• Altitude Alerting and Monitoring.

• Alerting for supplemental oxygen use for both pilot and passengers.

• GPS accuracy monitoring

• Pilots that primarily rent aircraft will immediately see the safety benefit in all aircraft that they rent.

• Aircraft owners will see the safety benefits without the cost of adding a panel mounted altitude preselector or a separate iPad connected barometric pressure sensor.


​​• iPad Air or newer, iPad Mini 2 or newer, iPad Pro
• Wifi + Cellular (Wifi ONLY requires an EXTERNAL GPS connected to the iPad such as Bad Elf Pro or Stratus 1S and 2S)


Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

This app is intended for use in aircraft WITHOUT a panel mounted altitude preselector, and pilots WITHOUT a barometric pressure sensing device. While the app will work perfectly the above situation, however it may be duplicating functionality you already have. Please DO NOT buy this app unless you want to use it as a backup.

Great for small GA


Excellent app for light GA that operate below FL180. If it could include up to FL290 it would be even better. Could it also include the voice saying leaving xxx altitude for xxx altitude when it's 1000' away from target altitude. It would be a nice differentiating tool from the Check altitude alert. Everything else is very nice and user friendly.

Exactly what I want/need


I hate busting an assigned altitude, but get distracted and get the call from ATC. Ugh. At first I thought this app was misleading, but after emailing the designer and working through the issues, I’m a fan. Now with the update to adjust the alert parameters it’s a jewel.

Great App

I am a flight Instructor who has flown for 50+ years. I used this app for the first time today with one of my instrument students. It was excellent and I will be recommending it to all of my students.
