FlyQ EFB is a top-rated aviation app because it makes your flying easier and safer by thoughtfully integrating powerful features in a way that minimizes the number of screen taps and uses larger fonts to increase readability. Subscriptions are reasonably priced, starting at just US $79. The all-new "4D Predictive Weather" system uses a Timeline and Altitude Slider to help you analyze weather at different times - both past and future - and at different altitudes. 17 weather layers from both the Internet and ADS-B (e.g. Radar, Icing, Turbulence, PIREPs, Winds Aloft, Surface Winds, Surface Analysis, Satellite, and more), many tied to the Timeline and Altitude Slider, give you unprecedented pre-flight and in-flight safety. Supports more than 20 ADS-B and in-panel devices including the Stratus 3, Avidyne, Dynon, Stratux, and more. The exclusive Augmented Reality (AR) feature provides situational awareness you'd previously only seen in sci-fi movies. Our Slingshot wireless ChartData system means FlyQ supplies maps, plates, and apt diagrams wirelessly to certified systems like the BendixKing xVue Touch and AeroVue Touch. The Visual Logbook and Post Flight Playback / Analysis Graphs add a whole new dimension to your flying. Optionally connect with your friends to "see" and even replay their flights. CFI's can track student progress and remotely send endorsements. Other key features include split screen, 3D synthetic vision, flight recorder / playback / export, plates on the map, more than 4,600 airport diagrams, rich Documents support, extended runways, distance measurement, fuel prices, NOTAMS, wind-optimized flight planning, and plates/diagrams for Mexico and Central America. > Maps Your Way + 2D maps, 3D Syn Vis, Augmented Reality + Sectionals and IFR charts + Photo, road, terrain maps + 17 Weather Layers + Flight Track + Fuel Prices + TFRs + Obstacle and Terrain Avoidance + ADS-B Traffic and Weather + Extended runways with right-pattern indicators + Procedures on map + Rings / Extended Course Line + CAP grid + Heli and Gulf of Mexico charts + VFR Flyways + Syn Vis includes HITS boxes, EFIS display, TAWS, Obstacles, and AHRS support.

I been using FlyQ for many years now for VFR flights to some very remote locations and I’m continually impressed. The attention to detail and constant improvements make me glad I chose Seattle Avionics. And, you can’t beat the price.
I like Fly Q and I have tried it a couple times over the past few years but struggle with it. I watched a lot of tutorials, which helped a lot because the interface is not intuitive. It was difficult to make a flight plan while in the air if I had to change something. The traffic feature has the size of the other planes too large which is misleading for how close they are as well as they block the ability to click on the map to gain information about particular airspace and airports nearby. Sadly it also deleted a few logged flights for some reason. I couldn’t find where to have a CFI sign off my Flight Review in my log book. I would still give FlyQ another try in the future.
I ran ForeFlight, tried others. Found FlyQ, ran it for 12 months alongside FF. I truly think anyone who stays with FF is insane... FlyQ with it’s not more than 2 clicks’ is by FAR the best. The new weather heavy release is fantastic. The responsive of their staff to both trivial and serious e-mails is both prompt and efficient. Looking forward to even more new features soon! Try it, after a little learning curve, I’m sure you’ll sign up and allow your FF the lapse as I did. ( oh, and it’s cheaper too...).
Great app. But it has a few bugs and crashes from time to time.
The app covers about everything I use flying, both VFR and IFR. I use it professionally with the AHRS feature as a safety backup that is remarkably accurate and compares closely to the Garmin glass I fly with. I also use it as a VFR reference for my private flying; the Merlin provides timely weather through ADS-B plus it adds a safety backup should other instruments fail. Easy to use and fairly quick to learn.
I’ve been a subscriber for a few years now. As a recreational pilot, picking an app that fits to it needs can be daunting. The features are plentiful, and switching isn’t always easy. I started with this app because of its user friendliness, and the data I need being handy and accessible quickly. Over the years, the product has been enhanced constantly with useful features, most recently a large weather package. I’ve renewed my subscription again for a few reasons: 1. Stable platform - very few, if any, crashes when in use, even with a 3 year old iPad. 2. Continuous improvement of the product. 3. Familiarity has remained with new releases, avoiding a complete re-learn on my end. 4. Compatibility with home-built stratux ADS-B in (less of a differentiator in 2020+) 5. Customer service is excellent.
Great app overall, I have other EFBs that I use time to time. But I keep coming back to FlyQ. Keeps getting better and better with every update. One feature I would like to see different/change Is the way we enter the route, I really like the way stratus insight EFB and foreflight does it.
Using it for 8 years.....my best buy for an aviation product....I can no longer fly without my FlyQ....I love all the update....very friendly app.....keep the good work.
I have been using this for about 4 years now. I started with this and Foreflight at the same time w/ 30 days trial and loved this one hands down. It is very intuitive to use for non-professional pilots, while foreflight is good as well but more geared towards commercial pilots. Over the years, FlyQ has come a long way and like one pricing subscription over “Chinese menu” for foreflight. I love the choice of multiple ADSB receivers over limited with other app. Hands down, great app that continues to add options.
X-Plane user. I used program two years ago and loved the features. X-planes not have very good maps and I prefer to travel the sky’s with true mapping and weather reports, since I fly with Real Weather program on sim. Thanks for designing such a Great program Ken Casida
