Flight Assistant is an aviation "moving map" GPS application.
Developed by pilots, it will be your best co-pilot on your Android phone or tablet.
Prepare your flight, download AIP (aeronautical) data, NOTAMs and weather data as well as airport charts and you are ready to take off.
Flight Assistant will help you to follow the flight plan that you have defined and will provide you with all the information you might need in flight.
Further more, Flight Assistant uses vector maps that are both much smaller and much more readable at all scales than the usual raster maps most other application use.
Flight Assistant comes with a companion web application that you can use to prepare your flights and manage your planes. https://app.flightassistant.aero
For added security, all you data is automatically synchronized to all your devices and the web(*).
The Flight Assistant application comes free, but you can subscribe to various data packages that enable more advanced feature in the application (comprehensive aeronautical data, HD vector maps, 3D terrain, etc).
