*30 Days Free Trial on initial download!* 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.

Best app for flying so far, and the support is excellent.
The new update effectively blows Foreflight out of the water! Garmin pilot has integrated everything within the app seamlessly making for a very user-friendly product. Everything is easy to read and find within the app and the updated map makes it even better.
I have been flying for a long time. This makes it too easy to plan flights and navigate.
Trial doesn't do anything except force the user to create a Garmin account and buy a subscription. I was expecting a map or something else to try, but got nothing. Even Help doesn't load. Is this the expected behavior of the trial mode or did the app get broken in this version? Back to Foreflight for another year...
The Garmin Pilot is very helpful app in my IFR training.
Many pilots I know fly with foreflight but they are missing out. Garmin pilot is more complete, easier to use and will also run on Android. Admittedly i dont frequently run it on Android but its a nice option. The integration with the Garmin watch is great and even better with the garmin ads-b in my plane visualizing traffic in real-time. The only downside i see is that it is getting slower as new versions come out on my slowly aging ipad. Sometimes parts of my screen dont get repainted very well, hopefully garmin addresses slowness on 2-3 year old ipads soon.
Update crashes every time the widget split screen opens!
The newest update has rendered this app useless at best, dangerous if you do not carry backup paper charts. There is no longer airport information, it will not open when selected and you cannot even get to it in the radial menu. I cannot load any airport information even if I am using WiFi. Garmin really needs to rest their updates before sending them out, fortunately I caught the issue before I got in the air. For a product that has worked well I am thoroughly disappointed, and will not renew my subscription should these issues not be addressed.
The application is excellent and easy to use. Been using it since the beginning. However, the integration with FlightPlan.com, seems like an after thought. Nothing more than a link to a web site - still has advertising embedded in it. I was hoping 9.7 would support procedures, but it doesn’t and can’t work with any GTN to iPad procedure. It’s so bad, I removed the icon from the home screen. No - it’s still behind Foreflight....a very good second.
Was working like a champ for months and suddenly within the last 2 weeks it started crashing every 10 second haven’t been able to use the app for 2 weeks now. Please address this issue and fix it.
