  • Very impressed!!!

    Here is my story.... I’m an airline guy just looking for some extra info, specifically weather, to supplement what I’m already using. That’s it. So I gave this app a try. Just as featured as the other apps available. Obviously a different interface. You may like or may not. Paid for the monthly plan and figured I’d give it a month... To my surprise, it has impressive features especially in regard to weather. (You can read up on them). Again, some of these are contained in other apps available. So why the five star review? What knocked me out of my socks is that I have contacted support 3 times in the past few days. Bryan responded to each question within an hour!!! What! Where can you get that kind of support!!! I wouldn’t expect this superb support nor do I deserve it. Thank you. Anyway, I’m sure this product will just keep getting better if it’s supported!
  • Great EFB

    I use Aerovie for flight planning/opening and closing VFR flight plans. The only reason I don’t use it in flight if because I have an old iPad mini with IOS 9 (that’s on me) and it clashes constantly. One improvement that I suggest is adding the ability to write/mark on the approach plates, that would make it the perfect EFB.
  • I am loving it

    Tried this app a year ago and did not like it. I just downloaded the latest version and I am blown away by the improvements and features included(free and pro versions). I suggested a monthly subscription rate and they listened. I am switching from ForeFlight to this app.
  • Excellent EFB with great potential

    Great value for the cost. One of the best and most intuitive user interfaces of the EFB apps currently available. Biggest downside to me is the awkwardness of moving Lat/long flight plan waypoints- dragging waypoint to another creates a new waypoint, then have to go back to select and delete the old one. Terrain profile is of limited value around mountainous routes, as it looks at a wide “width” that can’t be changed.

    1000 hour PIC here in a single engine plane who worked as a single pilot in the cockpit. While I’m not actively flying, I did run this app through its paces and all I can say is why is this planner NOT in the top grossing apps in the flight planning searches? This flight planner runs circles around foreflight when it comes to ease of use in the cockpit. Easy to read in varying lighting conditions, easy to amend IFR flight plans. Weather briefings and overview of flight planning) is the best I’ve seen (far better than foreflight and fltplango) I had foreflight basic subscription and you get far MORE features in this app (log book and geo referenced approach plates) in a simple one price subscription app AT A MUCH CHEAPER YEARLY RATE. If I was an active pilot, you can bet this app would be on my yoke mount.
  • Fantastic

    Love this efb. Great for weather planning and has the same or better nav and situational awareness capabilities as the competing apps. No brainer for student pilots as the cost is so low. You get all of the functionality of the high priced options on other apps at a much lower cost. Continually gets improved. You can get open source ADS B devices to get real time info in the cockpit for a few hundred bucks.
  • Best App for Weather!

    I love Aerovie. It costs less than half of ForeFlight and does almost just as much, and when it comes to weather, it does significantly more. The vertical profile tool is very beneficial for a lower time pilot like myself, as it helps me see and dissect possible en route weather in an easy, but thorough manner. More pilots need to be flying with Aerovie!

    I'd give it five stars, however, the app keeps closing on me whenever I try to view a route from a zoomed out view. Seems to be a relatively recent issue too, possible bug that can hopefully be fixed with an update. Also, weather illustrations could be better. Looking at a prog chart to get an idea for upcoming weather is like looking at a pixelated outdated chart, same with icing illustration on the overlay menu. It's competitive with foreflight to an extent. One great feature that could make Aerovie really stand out is incorporating the option to select "ATC Preferred routes" when it comes to IFR flying much like foreflight does, working on weather overlay graphics/visuals, and possibly incorporating the ability to draw text on the plates or charts as reminders, outlining taxi routes on an airport diagram, or circling important portions of an approach/DP plate. EDIT: Looks like there was an update available and I did not notice it until after sending this - I'll give it five stars due to the fact that the developer seems to have caught this bug relatively quick! For what it's worth, the app is great, just my .02 on what I think could be improved upon. Merely constructive criticism, nothing more :)
