Plan. File. Fly. Log.

Garmin Pilot is the most comprehensive suite of tools for the iPad designed specifically for general aviation and corporate pilots. Flight planning, charts, interactive maps, weather briefing resources and navigation capabilities; it’s all included. The app’s intuitive interface mirrors those on the newest Garmin touchscreen avionics so you can go seamlessly from preflight to inflight.

Plan

Garmin Pilot’s powerful capabilities start with pre-flight planning, providing pilots with the most comprehensive aviation weather information to make better-informed flight decisions. Pilots can check NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, TFRs and lightning data. With Garmin Pilot, data can be displayed over Garmin’s interactive maps that support track-up navigation, VFR sectional or an IFR low or high en-route chart to visualize the weather for your route. Add text-based weather widgets and use the exclusive NavTrack feature to view weather along the planned route.

File

With Garmin Pilot, users can easily enter a flight plan and interactively edit it on the map. Pre-loaded forms make it quick to save and reuse data for frequently flown routes. And when the flight plan is ready, Garmin Pilot makes it simple to file, amend or close the flight plan via Leidos Flight Service or DUATS.

Fly

Garmin Pilot provides full en-route navigation capability on its moving map. Pilots can also navigate with Garmin’s patented panel, a GPS-driven instrument pack with a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude and vertical speed. After takeoff, pilots can continue to view real-time weather in the U.S. and traffic information by wirelessly connecting to Garmin’s GDL 39 3D portable ADS-B Receiver (sold separately).

Log

Garmin Pilot includes a comprehensive electronic logbook that syncs with flyGarmin. The logbook automatically generates entries based upon GPS data collected during the flight, tracks currency, supports manual entries, endorsements and creates reports.

Customer Reviews

Nice job!!

The latest version with bug fixes is great! Sometimes Garmin doesn’t completely test their apps before releasing them. Seems to run smooth and so far no crashes. However may require more iPad horsepower than previous versions especially when connected to a Bluetooth device and the display gets busy with traffic and wx. Interface is clean and easy to file a flight plan. Great information and data given for the flight plan. Still lacking good weather information for flight planning when compared to the competitors weather page. One of GPs best features is auto-plate load, no hunting for approaches.
Would like to see an option to save reminders, like switch tanks, get ATIS, etc. I have to enter them for each flight - cumbersome. Would like to see auto-routing for approaches. GP has come a long way since its inception and supports numerous Garmin products ..excellent application, fly with it all the time.

Slow to update iPhone/iOS releases

The iPhone X has been out for a few months now - yet Garmin Pilot doesn’t natively support its screen size. ForeFlight added support for this weeks ago.

It’s a tight competition here. Waiting so long to release an update unfortunately indicates how nimble Garmin is with this product.

Lastly, since they launched this product, the SIGMET overlay has been composed of a bunch of dots, obscuring the underlying map. Don’t they know that they could make the overlay a different shade and translucent, like ForeFlight does?

When it works it’s great

I love this app but the pre-release testing is inadequate. Every few updates it crashes nonstop and I have to remove the app from my iPhone or iPad and reinstall along with downloading all the data. I’ve never had this issue with FF. This is a serious problem with something I’m spending real money on!
