Aviation Apps for iPhone 

AirWx- has easy to use Metars, Tafs, weather maps, sectional charts and an E6B. $9.99


AeroWeather – a more basic app useful for quickly looking at Metars and TAFs.  Has a Metar/TAF plain language decoder which is helpful. Free.


MyRadar – a good basic radar display app. Free.


RadarScope – an outstanding app which allows you to select radar station scope you want to view and which “tilt” you want to view.  It has a very sophisticated viewer to allow you to look at different sections of the atmosphere not just ground level. $9.99


Weatherbug – a great little weather tool.  Enter the city or airport and get all the weather you need including temp, windspeed and direction, humidity, dew point, 7 day forecast, maps, videos, weathercams, etc.  A great way to get an overall weather picture. Free.


ForeFlight – Is an outstanding flight planning tool, weather tool, flying tool, flight plan filing tool.  This is an extremely robust program which will allow you to do complete preflight planning including weather, notams, flight plan filing, etc.  It has AOPA Airports (facility directory) built in.  It has radar and satellite maps.  It has a Flight Rules overlay, wind chart including winds aloft, ceiling map, sky coverage, temperature map, dew point spread map, lightening display and IFR enroute (high and low) charts, VFR Sectional charts and a gasoline price lookup.  It has all approach charts for every airport and taxi diagrams.  It is georeferenced with the iPhone or iPad built in GPS or external GPS.  With the iPad it really eliminated the need for a Electronic Flight Book or VFR GPS.  A little pricey at about $75 per year but the best overall tool I have found.



AOPA Airports – a flight facilities directory.  It’s excellent and easy to use but you must be an AOPA member. Free from Foreflight.


Skycharts – This is an outstanding little app that gives your High and Low En Route IFR charts, VFR Sectionals, TAC charts.  It gives a basic weather overview on the charts (IFR, VFR, MVFR).  It allows you to enter a Direct To flight plan and then will show your Groundspeed, Trac, DTK, Distance and ETE.  $9.99


CFI Tools Weight & Balance – This is an outstanding program that will allow you to input the W&B information for every airplane you fly (comes with a bunch of common SEL airplanes already loaded).  With the basic weights and arms loaded you can easily input your fuel load, luggage load and passengers and then see a graphical depiction (envelope) of your takeoff and zero fuel W&B.  Highly recommended. $9.99



MyE6B – There are a number of E6B Apps.  This one is comprehensive and the easiest to use of the several I have tested. $8.99


PFMA – an E6B modeled on the one you can buy from Sporty’s.  It’s not nearly as intuitive or easy to use as MyE6B.  I don’t recommend it. $5.99


FltPlan – Another airport facility app. Free.


HoldPattern – An easy to use holding pattern calculator that allows you to enter the desired hold radial and entry heading and then it shows graphically the pattern (left or standard) and the preferred entry (Parallel, Teardrop Direct).  Easy to use in flight or for training. $1.99


HoldCalc – Does basically the same thing that HoldPattern does, just has a little differenct interface. $1.99


iVOR – a great little training app especially helpful when  you are trying to master VOR navigation.  It gives you three VOR radials and challenges you to put your airplane in the correct place by centering the needle.  There’s a timer so as you get better you can work on speed. $4.99


PowerWheel – Calculates % HP based on RPM, MP, ALT and OAT when flying Rich of Peak EGT or total HP based on FF when flying Lean of Peak EGT.  It’s very useful for seeing what combinations give you a given power setting.  Customizable by airplane and engine. $4.99


X-Wind – a very easy to use crosswind calculator.  It graphically diplays the runway heading (adjustable of course) and then you enter windspeed.  It then gives the crosswind component and shows direction graphically. Free.


IFR Flying – It’s the FAA Instrument Flying Handbook on your iPhone or iPad. $2.99


IFR Proc – It’s the FAA’s Instrument Procedures Handbook for your iPhone or iPad. $4.99


PilotFAR – The FAA FARAIM for the iPhone or iPad. $9.99


Tail Number – Want to know who owns that airplane?  Enter the tail number and automatically search the FAA database. $0.99


Waypoint – Enter the N number of the plane and your account name, username and password and it will remind you when to update your Jeppesen and Garmin databases on the plane’s GPS. $2.99


iAtis – The iATIS app allows pilots and instructors to record ATIS broadcast information, which is then displayed visually for continued reference without the possibility of transcription error or forgetting the pertinent ATIS data. $2.99


Wind Vane – Using your GPS location, Wind Vane uses a custom algorithm to provide accurate, current wind direction and speed. $0.99
