App Description

*30 Days Free Trial on initial download!* Plan. File. Fly. Log. Garmin Pilot is the most comprehensive suite of tools for the iPad designed specifically for general aviation and corporate pilots. Flight planning, charts, interactive maps, weather briefing resources and navigation capabilities; it’s all included. The app’s intuitive interface mirrors those on the newest Garmin touchscreen avionics so you can go seamlessly from preflight to inflight. Plan Garmin Pilot’s powerful capabilities start with pre-flight planning, providing pilots with the most comprehensive aviation weather information to make better-informed flight decisions. Pilots can check NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, TFRs and lightning data. With Garmin Pilot, data can be displayed over Garmin’s interactive maps that support track-up navigation, VFR sectional or an IFR low or high en-route chart to visualize the weather for your route. Add text-based weather widgets and use the exclusive NavTrack feature to view weather along the planned route. File With Garmin Pilot, users can easily enter a flight plan and interactively edit it on the map. Pre-loaded forms make it quick to save and reuse data for frequently flown routes. And when the flight plan is ready, Garmin Pilot makes it simple to file, amend or close the flight plan via Leidos Flight Service or DUATS. Fly Garmin Pilot provides full en-route navigation capability on its moving map. Pilots can also navigate with Garmin’s patented panel, a GPS-driven instrument pack with a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude and vertical speed. After takeoff, pilots can continue to view real-time weather in the U.S. and traffic information by wirelessly connecting to Garmin’s GDL 39 3D portable ADS-B Receiver (sold separately). Log Garmin Pilot includes a comprehensive electronic logbook that syncs with flyGarmin. The logbook automatically generates entries based upon GPS data collected during the flight, tracks currency, supports manual entries, endorsements and creates reports.

    Not working on iPad Pro. Closes almost immediately after opening.
  • Was good, now not so much

    By Usedtobehappywgarmin
    Used to work great, latest update and it crashes all the time.
  • No trial subscription as indicated.

    By BullpupT
    No trial, just do nothing template. Waste of time and poor reflection on product.
  • Crashing frequently since last update.

    By Rcwflyer
    The app is my favorite by far for GA purposes. Lately it has crashed frequently and become unreliable. Please address the instability quickly.
  • Total req fuel

    By Bell X-1
    The new update has broken the calculation for total required fuel.
  • Synthetic Vision in Split Screen Mode

    By Flying ace 2
    Latest update now supports the ability to view split screens on the synthetic vision page. This allows quick access to information such as widgets, maps, and approach plates! Now the AHRS is a great setup for a backup attitude system. Excellent update.
  • Perfect

    By Happy2th
    This app provides everything I need now. I no longer have to go to different apps for weather, to view a flight profile view showing cloud levels, weight and balance, flight planning, etc. And I love the way it communicates with my Garmin GTN 650 via Bluetooth.
