I'm an aviation enthusiast and hope to start my private pilot training soon, but I've used this on commercial flights as a passenger. For a free app, this is about as good as it gets. The only things I'd like to see added is a radar overlay and maybe a way to personalize the plane icon (color/size). Maybe actual pilots have a different opinion (then again, maybe not), but will likely be my go-to navigation supplement when I start training.
I've been using this for years; flying many thousands of miles with Avare. For a free aviation app this can not be beat! Very reliable and intuitive. If the industry wasn't bias towards foreflight, this would be my only go to flying app. I'm surprised there is no pay-ware extra feature for Avare. I know it goes against what they are for but it could keep Avare in the game for a long time to come. Thank you for your work Avare team, so to make my flying more safe! It just keeps getting better! Layered charts, synthetic vision, and probably more! Avare you did it again! Keep up the progress, I love bragging this app to foreflight only users!
This app is super underrated. The thing about it is that it's not super intuitive and polished, but it's the best free Aviation app I've used on Android and it has so really cool features. This has some features that foreflight does not have. The app does have a website that can help you learn the app, or just play with it until you figure it out. I love that it has all the charts I will ever need and it will show your position on an instrument approach chart in real time. Freaking rad.
I used to be a Garmin Pilot guy, but have switched to Avare to save $70 or more a year. This is the best free aviation app for Android for many reasons including open source nature, smooth scrolling charts, multiple ADSB receiver support, chart overlay, and geo reference. I use a different radar app called MyRadar, because I don't like the low quality radar on Avare. I suppose the low quality is for smooth function and quick update. Overall, great job developers of Avare and thank you.
A are Teviee Excellent app. It has become my standard cross country trading app for all my students. This capability would have cost you a grand just a couple years ago. Now all my students can have it. Thanks!!!
Once you dig into this app and really understand what it offers such as geo synchronized approach plates, it becomes obvious that this flight book has much to offer. That it is still free places it head and shoulders above the competition. You will be missing out on the best deal in aviation should you not spend some quality time with Avare. I was so impressed, the money I used to send to Garmin for their Pilot app, now goes to Avare to help with development and bandwidth.
