It’s written as a hybrid app with no real thought to design or user experience. It feels like a bad Android app. This isn’t something I would use in the simulator let alone as an efb. I might use the weather for flight planning purposes if it was separated, but there are better apps out there for that as well.
After using ForeFlight for 3 years, I decided to try some different EFBs. I like how simple this app is, but even in the 15 minutes getting oriented with the app, I noticed that it is very glitchy. There were several times where I could not get charts or takeoff minimums to close using the ‘X’ (close button). Also, I don’t feel like the interface is too polished. It felt a little clunky to use. Given the bugs I came across so far, I would hesitate to attempt to use it during an actual flight. Has potential though.
Full function flight bag app with some great weather planning resources.
Would be nice for them to tell you how it cost before you download
You need to pay for a subscription to actually use the app
Nice feature set and generally intuitive process to use. Support is timely and great. It’s unclear to me why this app does not get more notice in the aviation press; anyone who gives this app some time will be impressed.
This App is Fantastic. I use it every time I plan a trip. It helps me make quick decisions on route, altitude, and weather. What a fantastic time saver and safety tool. Thanks guys, keep it up.
As a 1200+ hr CFI/MEI/CFII I highly recommend this to my students as I think it’s phenomenal. I’d used foreflight for a long time (mostly because it’s popular) and it’s what my employer wanted us to use... Then flight plan go. But aerovie is on a whole other level and is amazing as a personal tool and as a teaching tool. Awesome weather info, easy to use, reliable interface in the cockpit, ability to show multiple METAR qualities on the map for airports (which foreflight CAN NOT do!), tons of advanced layers you can load on the map for weather - for teaching, research, or getting a more in-depth understanding of the atmosphere you’re going to face... These really help provide a more in-depth look at the weather as well as your flight plan. All for a very affordable price I think. One thing I wish were changed however... when clicking on AIRMETs (Zulu tango Sierra etc) it shows the applicable altitude but I still want to see the RAW ORIGINAL AIRMET information in the little white box. The original airmet text information. Also when looking at the complete standard briefing.... the way the winds/temperatures aloft text is presented it kind of runs together and is hard to read? Is there any way to fix this? I’m running a 12.9 inch iPad Pro (on the ground only!) and it’s still hard to see/decipher sometimes.
Aerovie has unique weather planning features for an EFB, which go above and beyond competitors.
The Only thing I would recommend to the developers is a different way to show a Wx brief, and the way ti file a flight plan
