*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.

A job well done

After falling in love with the gorgeous interface, maps, safetaxi, it was so difficult to leave. For a while, Garmin Pilot lacked some basic functionality that wasn’t an absolute dealbreaker, but was occasionally frustrating. The release of 10.2 was the final nail that finished the app. I can’t find a single detail I don’t like anymore. Consider this a job well done. This is better than other competitors in every way.

V10.2 crashes...

I think their beta testers must be recovering from the virus. This version crashes as soon as you activate new tab bar then select split screen - and change icon...Try to select profile view...crash! Does anyone check this stuff?

Awesome app . Never had any issue .using it since last 3 yrs. new iOS update is nice and clean. And this pilot app is cheap compare to other app out there . I trust Garmin over any other app.

So disappointing

I bought a plane with perspective + and garmin pilot was designed to work seamlessly with updates and flight plan exchange. When the program doesn’t crash it can exchange flight plans with the panel but it’s a few swipes and clicks more than ForeFlight. The updating of databases... SSSSUUUUUKKKKSS. after you set it up which took me 4 hours... I had to create multiple accounts with 3rd parties then activate them to work properly. Then pair Bluetooth and WiFi. Then download lots of stuff then enable. I’ve had to do this several times as the app is glitchy. The database concierge is very confusing and has worked only a few times. I don’t even try anymore. I just use the cards. I’ve had the app crash on me many times. Brand new iPad. Brand new download. Tried it on multiple iPads. Crash. Crash. Crash. Honestly... it’s horrible. Sorry. I love garmin aviation. But the app, despite some clever interfaces and ideas, is totally unreliable, clumsy and confusing.

Love the recent changes

I fly C182T G1000 and am loving how Pilot works more and more like the avionics I use.

Unstable, unworkable

Bought a new Apple iPhone 11 one month ago. Installed Garmin Pilot. It constantly crashes after about 10 seconds. Completely useless now. Worked fine on my old Android. Ive updated to the latest help at all.

Just a Sim Pilot

I’m just a sim pilot... it would be awesome to have a plan that somehow just work for use with flight simulation. I’d give a 5 if there were some more consideration for that. I really do like the app.

Works great with iPhone as well

So, obviously this app works best on iPad. However, I’m just a lowly private pilot who flies a Cherokee on the weekends with a tight budget to boot. As such, I don’t really want to keep and maintain an iPad as well as my iPhone. Therefore, I just use my 11 Pro Max. Works a charm and suits my needs perfectly.
