About this app

Gyro Attitude Indicator and other key flight instruments on your Android.

Key features:
-Gyro Attitude Indicator, with auto-calibration and auto-leveling. Indicator shows extreme attitude chevrons to guide you back to a safety if you find yourself in an unusual attitude
-"Glass cockpit" Primary Flight Display using digital tapes for Speed, Altitude, Heading, Vertical Speed and Rate of Turn
-Position relative to nearest airport in plain English (convenient for ATC position reports), with a global database of 23,000 airports, including tower frequencies
-Fully configurable display
-Choice of imperial or metric units

Provides pilots with a backup for their artificial horizon, airspeed indicator, altimeter and compass on a modern PFD.

Continuous Adaptive Auto-Calibration adjusts the gyro for sensor drift as a result of temperature, engine vibration and sensor errors.

For correct indication, the device needs to be placed vertical, with the screen facing straight back. Level the attitude indicator by tapping the center at any time.

Sensors are optimized for use in flight, and will show dip and bank at slow speeds (eg in a car).

Upon start-up, the tapes may show red X marks to indicate that no reliable GPS signal is available. Once a reliable GPS signal has been captured, speed and altitude tapes will show. The heading tape will show once moving at a speed of greater than 10 kts. A reliable GPS signal may not be possible indoors.

Air data is derived from GPS, and therefore only an approximation of actual air speed, altitude and heading and attitude. Do not use for primary navigation or attitude reference. You assume total responsibility and risk associated with this application.

Most devices have accelerometer sensors, but this is not the same as gyro sensors. Gyro attitude is only possible with gyro sensors, so please check your device documentation to confirm you have gyro sensors.

Initially looks quite good on the ground... But take to the air after having put my HTC Desire into 'Airplane mode' - to comply with flight regulations your application which once worked perfectly on the ground now tells you it is 'unlicensed for this device' and promptly closes when you hit 'ok'... So if you have any intention of using this in the air - for fun purposes - think again it does not work thanks to this rather major licensing restriction! Update May 2017 - it is slightly better, you can now launch it 3 or 4 times but as the licensing has no internet connection (usual if flying!) - it will then switch to unlicensed and you cannot run it anymore - until you have landed and have internet again.. It has been this way for many years now so I guess the author is in no hurry to fix this rather fundamental issue!

Sorry to hear you're having problems with this. Once the license has been verified once on the ground, it should work fine in Airplane mode. If you continue to have issues, try un-installing and re-installing the app, and make sure you start it with an internet connection the first time you start up

This app has worked well on my Samsung Note 4, but crashes on opening on my new Google Pixel C running Android 6.0.1. It seems the new Android is giving it problems.
