theFlightVario - Paragliding Variometer

theFlightVario turns your smartphone into a fully equipped variometer for paragliding. It is easy to use and fits advanced pilots as well as intermediates and beginners.

This smartphone variometer supports built in barometers and uses all sensors i. e. accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer and barometer to fusionboost all of the information into a zero delay variometer for paragliding.
It also supports external barometers like the SkyBean2, blueFlyVario v12 and XCTracer via bluetooth low energy / bluetooth classic or USB.

Variometer sounds can be customized by defining the responsiveness, lift, sink and sniffing thresholds.

theFlightVario features a complete geolocation awareness by incorporating flatland and terrain maps together with a dynamic lookup of mountain names and places and information about airspaces and digital elevation data. A magnetic compass with worlwide compensation for geomagnetic field declination always indicates true north. Fully GPS assisted services include the lookup of mean sea level altitudes, the calculation of wind direction during flight as well as gps bearing and speed over ground. Locations are logged and color coded in .kml tracks for usage within Google Maps / Google Earth.

The calculation of common distances such a distance to start, free one way, free three turnpoint and closed/open triangles are being updated realtime during flight.

Your flights can be shared realtime via live tracking capabilities during flight or after landing using messengers like Whattsapp or more classical communication like Gmail and Google Drive and more.

Weather awareness is accomplished by lookup of data from nearby weather stations.

Last but not least all of your flights are organized into a flightbook with flight stats, maps and color coded tracks within theFlightVario smartphone variometer.

theFlightVario is tested on quite a few smartphones out there but needless to say, it is impossible to test all available phones. So, if you feel like this is not working with your phone take the time, write us some lines and give us a chance to understand the nature of the problem and we will try to fix.
