This week jetliner marvel has brought you some amazing apps for iPhone /iPad users. We know that the number of aviation apps continues to grow daily, with many choices for flight coaching, weather briefings, gamesthen far more. At this stage most pilots are fairly set with their favorite EFB app (e.g. ForeFlight, Garmin, WingX Pro, FltPlan Go etc.), therefore here we’re planning to specialise in the supporting aviation apps
MyRadar NOAA Weather Radar, Forecasts & Storms
MyRadar is a fast, easy-to-use, weather application that displays animated weather radars around your current location, allowing you to quickly see what weather is coming your way. Our High Definition Doppler radar data is processed from raw NOAA weather radar data from the National Weather Service / NWS using our custom-designed, proprietary systems and software, offering the clearest, sharpest, most accurate and most up-to-date reflection of precipitation available… easily accessible at the tap of a finger on your mobile device.
Just start the app, and your location pops up with animated weather, allowing you to easily see if rain or snow is headed your way. Our high-res animated radar helps you see weather details even at the closest level!
Cloud Topper Pilot Sight Level
Pilots, it’s time to get rid of your sight level, water bottle or whatever “old school” method you have been using to determine cloud height. Introducing Cloud Topper, a revolutionary new sight level designed specifically for the iPad and iPhone.
With Cloud Topper you can use your device camera, gyroscope and accelerometer as a traditional sight level. Plus you can enter the distance to a cloud and Cloud Topper will calculate your height above or below that cloud. The displayed cloud height is even corrected for the curvature of the earth.

CloudAhoy is for pilots’ post-flight debriefing. Data is logged during flight, and the post-flight service provides a comprehensive debriefing: VFR and IFR, with 2D or 3D flight tracks, profiles, wind, maneuver analysis, instrument approaches and more. Flight logging, listing and viewing is free. Debriefing service is free for 35-days, then it is $44.99/year.
CloudAhoy is being used by students, professional pilots, CFIs, military and GA. They fly fixed-wing, rotorcraft and gliders. It is used to debrief VFR and instrument training flights, XC, and special missions such as search and rescue. It is used by recreational pilots for sharing flights with their passengers or friends. Many CloudAhoy users routinely record every flight so that the unexpected can be studied.
The best-selling E6B app for iPad and iPhone is now even better! Sporty’s Pilot Shop, the world’s largest pilot shop, brings you the all new E6B Flight Computer 2.0. This new version of the app takes all the core functions of the original E6B app and adds improved functionality, a redesigned interface and an all new weight & balance calculator.
Based on Sporty’s popular handheld E6B Electronic Flight Computer, the E6B app has been designed from the ground up to make the most of iOS on the iPhone and iPad. The software is based on the tried and true formulas and algorithms developed over the years by Sporty’s team of over 50 pilots.

Search by aircraft registration, route, airline, flight number, city pair, or airport code. Tracking data includes complete flight details and full-screen maps with NEXRAD radar overlay.

In flight, Xavion constantly imagines engine-failed glides to every runway in gliding range. For each of these glides, Xavion scores the chance of a successful power-off landing based on runway length, runway width, headwind, tailwind, or crosswind on that runway, the weather around the airport, and a number of other factors. Then, once Xavion has estimated the chance of a successful landing at EVERY runway within gliding range, it shows you the approach that it believes is best as 3-D hoops that you simply glide through to make it to the runway! The hoops are set up at the glide ratio for your airplane, so you can stay in them with power off!
