TRUSTED BY PILOTS. DEVELOPED BY PILOTS.
Takeoff was developed by pilots like you, who understand what information you need to fly safely. Other pilots agree:
"I love the presentation of information on the screen. The colors are great and the interpretations are pretty much idiot proof." -Adam Zucker, Pilot
"First thing I thought was WOW! I love how quick it is to get the information quickly into my brain. Love the maps and other weather graphics. Love the TAF decoder." -Andrew Ohnstad, Pilot
Takeoff relies on NOAA METAR and TAF reports. Airports must report METAR/TAF information in order for Takeoff to provide reports. Takeoff is not a substitute for official flight planning and weather information, and by using Takeoff, you agree not to hold the developers liable for any inaccuracies or misrepresentations.
What's New in Version 4.5
Support for 3D Touch for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus: Peek and pop through reports and weather graphics, and use home screen shortcuts to quickly view the forecasts you want.
Great app that provides current METAR and TAF data. The layout is nice and easy to understand, the complete aviation weather presentation, as well as added features make this app an excellent addition to any pilot and even weather enthusiasts. Radar views, map views (I'd like to see this improved to show airports with radar overlay), PIREPs, NOTAMs, and more. Just great! I hope they continue to improve it and don't get carried away with unnecessary changes/features. Well worth the price.
Well worth the cost...
The services this app provides and the intuitive interface are well worth the current price tag. This app seamlessly mixes raw and interpreted METAR and TAF data to best present users with the information require.
Great for a quick look at latest weather, I use it to verify what I am seeing on the authorized weather products for our HEMS operation. I set company minimums on it and get instant visual verification of what I am digging out of other sources.
