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.
This should be a must for all private VFR and IFR pilots. When it comes to go and no go decisions all forms of information is needed. This is a great source of information.
I love this app! Been using it for about 3 years. Provides great information and I always check it for quick check on what conditions are for flying on work days. Definitely recommend this for any aviation enthusiast!
This is a great app that provides pretty much all the info I need for local flights. My only complaint is wondering why they don’t charge more.
The notams tab is quickly accessed at the top of the menu screen, making this App the fastest way to check same day destinations or even alternates. In fact the TAF function is better than any other flight planning software we can access. Super easy to use and great info from any ASOS/Metars equipped airport.
The app is still functional minus the radar feature but given the app hasn’t been updated in 2 years, it’s not likely we’ll see any fixes or improvements.
The app doesn’t explain that hey have a separate version for the ipad. This one opens an iPhone sized window with a huge plank border. This looks like trash even on an iPad mini
I’m a student pilot currently trying out different apps. This app presents info in a very simple, easy-to-read manner with helpful color-coding - enough to be useful but not overwhelming (as some of the other apps have been).
Great app a ton of information
Will you continue to develop the application? I see the last change was 2 years ago.
Use app all the time nice would be nice if radar starts working again so use only one app
