IDEAL FOR THE COCKPIT Takeoff keeps the most recent reports ready and available on your device, so that you always have the information you need, even when you’re offline! 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.
I'm a flight instructor, and was quite excited to find this program with it's very appealing graphical interface. "Unfortunately it at times provides grossly inaccurate crosswind wind calculations." These issues appear to have been addressed. I will double-check results and hope all is fixed.
Better than a lot of risk assessment tools I've seen. Developers are responding to feedbacks proactively. Impressive!
I started using this app when I was getting my private. I'm no weather expert and never will be. You set the parameters that you are comfortable with and can quickly tell whether it's a good day to fly or not. Highly recommended for the general aviation pilot.
Everything the aviator needs to plan and stay informed about weather. Very useful app. I highly recommend!
I am in Costa Rica and it doesn't even have the international airports. Lame
Very well polished and has everything I could need for my flying needs. Highly recommended.
On a couple of airports there is too much information than some of the other airports, but you can't scroll to read the information- it's chopped off at the bottom of the screen. What's up with arrows for headwind, tailwind? Everything's crammed together, wasted space on the right side column.
Absolutely LOVE this app! I use another web interface for full briefings, but this app provides a fantastic way to see current conditions. Fast and simple without clutter! The developer is very responsive to suggestions and keeps adding features while still keeping the interface clean. This is a must have app if you're a pilot!
I am very pleased with this app. I am a relatively new VFR pilot just beginning to travel on longer cross country flights. This app makes it so simple to determine go vs. no go - at my comfort level. I have told all my pilot friends about it.
For airline pilots: Needs higher xwind limits - at least 35 knots (plus add gust factor) Also a takeoff limit and landing limit Also color code taf (like ForeFlight) but add more limit options on weather as well. Like exemption 3585, Add the ability to have departure airport(with takeoff limits) destination (with landing limits) and if the alternate meets limits - all color coded. Just quick fields like: Dept Ete Dest Alt. My 2cents in.
