Amazing app, amazing customer support
Great App 5/5
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! 5/5
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!
Was great 5/5
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 Looking at a prog chart to get an idea for upcoming weather is like looking at a pixelated outdated chart, same with icing illustration on the overlay menu.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 :)
I wish I could change the units of measurement. 3/5
I really like the features in this app. I’m still trying to get used to the interface. My complaint is not being able to change the units of measurement. I’d like to use mph over knots since that is how my AI reads and to stay consistent with that I’d like to be able to view SM vs KM. Maybe in a future release?
Excellent App 5/5
From time to time there might be a small glitch BUT if the developer hasn't already noticed it all you have to do is send him an email and he gets on it as fast as possible.
Very user friendly and great customer support make this app the one for privates to pro's. If there is something you need answered about Aerovie just ask and the response time is usually pretty quick.
Excellent app indeed
Some nice features but clunky interface 2/5
The vertical weather profile is it's best feature. But pinching does not work as expected, at one point hanging during 1.3X resize.
I like that it starts queuing up approach charts when airports are added to your flightplan.
But trying to create a flightplan was frustrating experience:
The map kept resetting me centered on current location. Im trying to rubber the flight path and keep getting thrown back.
Could not find a way to query individual airspace, it just gives me a long list of every one on the chart. Be nice to get a vertical profile of those as well.
Could not add airways.
I personally like text and cascading menus, the symbolic buttons doesn't work for me. And I watch a video, it shows buttons on the bottom, I never could figure out how to get to that screen.
Freezes up and quirky. Don't waste money. 1/5
The route vertical weather profile is the best part about this app...if you can get to it. The rest is garbage. Slow and hangs up a lot. Database downloads are quirky. The longer the planned route, the worse it seems to be. Good idea but needs a lot of work. Can't believe they can charge money for this.
Do not think twice! 5/5
By TXU 4 U
This is a fabulous app, full of resources and information. Very comprehensive and user friendly. If you are thinking twice, think no more. Download and start using it. You will not regret. Amazing development!
Watch out Foreflight! 5/5
I used to subscribe to Foreflight and in the beginning they were clearly innovative. However, over the years that innovation has seemed to stagnate and the value added diminish. In using Aerovie I've been more than impressed with the feature set. One of the most valuable capabilities has been the graphical weather depiction that the software provides. This with the price point provides what I believe an equal if not greater value option than Foreflight.
Very impressive foreflight like 5/5
I'm using a trial sub on this app and find it very impressive so far. Seems very complete like foreflight which is my go to app.
Best present flight weather available 5/5
The pre-flight weather information available is second to none. It's a true life saver and I can't see how anyone could function without it.
So much potential!!! 4/5
I have been using this app now for few weeks. Although i believe it needs a little user interface refinements, it is by far the best EFB for weather planning out there. The weather profile is amazing and allows you to have a great sense of what is going to be forecasted ahead of time. As with all apps, this is going to improve a lot and I am looking forward to the next versions.
Subscription problems 2/5
The app isn't bad. I liked the terrain clearance feature which gives a graphical depiction of weather and wind. My problem was that I kept getting charged monthly for subscription renewal and I couldn't stop it. Had to contact Apple to get them to shut down subscription. I really didn't like the app as much as Foreflight or Garmin Pilot.
Best bang for the buck 5/5
Aerovie is a great app for the money. Bryan listens to feedback and is constantly updating the app to make it better. Be on the look out for this app to rise to the top in the Aviation market
Just installed it on my Ipad Mini. I open it, it crashes. I open it, it crashes.
Great idea with features that continue to mature!
Fantastic flight tool! 5/5
Awesome flight planning tool that has the best weather tools on the market. A must have for IFR pilots. A far better value than Foreflight. Works great on flight simulator too.
Superior Flight Planning App 5/5
Much better value then Foreflight
Great Aviation App 5/5
Works well and weather and routing information easy to get and well presented. Excellent tech support. User friendly.
Awesome App 5/5
By Loop & Roll Ron
This is hands down the best flight/ weather planning tool available.
Nearly perfect and getting better all the time 5/5
I've used Foreflight and Garmin Pilot, both great apps for pilots, but neither contain the expansive integrated weather reports and forecasting that Aerovie does. There have been continual updates to both weather and flight planning. The latest includes an alternate airport planning tool. Job well done!
AerovieReports is Rockin 5/5
Have you been disappointed in "weak" aviation apps before? Frustrated by wanting a feature and it isn't there? While not perfect yet, Aerovie is working hard to bring you the features you desire and some you didn't know you wanted yet.
The 2D atmosphere depiction of clouds, precipitation, ice and more make this app more than worth it's price. They are also very responsive to suggestions/comments. What are you waiting for? Give the free trial a run and see if you don't agree👍.
Excellent features! 5/5
I really like this application. It has some excellent features not found in ForeFlight. My favorite is the vertical profile view that shows you clouds, precipitation,icing, PIREPs in an easy to understand cross-sectional view. Also, commonly needed information is quick to access and there are advanced features such as automated voice briefings and terrain awareness. Also, you have the availability of Skew-t diagrams anywhere.
Thoroughly Impressed!!! 5/5
As a commercial pilot I have used Foreflight and Garmin's app. Compared to this app those two aren't even on the same level...and I have only been playing with it for 20 minutes on the free trial. I can't really explain what this app can do but it seems like it can do everything, gives you an unbelievable amount of info at your finger tips, and is packaged in a very easy and aesthetically pleasing user interface. Because it can look at your weather 8 days in advance and keep an eye on it for you, it automatically has my vote! Now I can't wait to download this on my iPad, which I think it will make it even better.
Great App! 5/5
This app is incredible! Has great features, helps me plan my flight to avoid weather issues and is so easy to use! I recommend it to every pilot.
Every pilot can benefit from using this app 5/5
This app does so much, and is great at all of it. Submitting a pirep is just the beginning. The interface is great and the data sources are complete and fresh. Love that it works on iPad and iPhone in very similar ways.
Getting worse instead of better 2/5
Great idea to be able to submit PIREPS electronically, but terrible execution. The interface is becoming very convoluted. Yesterday it said no GPS data when Foreflight and Garmin Pilot were happily plotting my course using the internal GPS. The flight planning function is difficult to use and much worse than either of the above. They should go back to being a simple PIREP program. Finally, it's really annoying that the free program won't store your N number and name, making you type it in each time.
Great app 5/5
This app has great potential to compete with Foreflight in the future. If only synthetic vision was available and the layout was a little better. This app could be up there with:
Best free aviation app (by far.) 4/5
I haven't had the chance to use this app to its full abilities (like filing flight plans, pireps, etc) but I'm astounded at how much information is readily available, and I'm extremely surprised that this app is free.
The only reason I haven't given five stars is because the flight planning is a little difficult to use. Its easy to drag and drop waypoints, but it's a little clunky with regards to editing those waypoints. I can't figure out how to remove waypoints, the trash can button doesn't seem to work. If you guys make this easier I'll happily give five stars, you deserve it!
Love the app 5/5
I am pursuing a career in aviation and I find this app easy to use and helpful.
Will make Pireps easier and more frequent 5/5
By Mike Meadows
Great app for simply filling Pireps using a phone and text system. Well designed to easily submit a report without having to remember all the arcane FAA syntax.
Hope it doesn't become bloated by adding too many features. Keep it simple and focussed on Pireps.
By Wells Aircraft
Used it several times from the air for PIREPS. Impressed signal on phone transmitted report in the air. PIREPS showed up!
Aerovie Reports is great! 5/5
Love using this tool to submit PIREPs!
A great idea and APP for aircraft with WiFi. Easy to use. Issues are "Auto GPS" does not work using iPad/iPhone GPS nor does the "Auto Altitude" mode. These functions may require an external GPS however no information is published on this. The manual mode could be improved by utilizing an aviation chart for location and being able to type in manual altitude vs slider for better accuracy while in flight. Good over all APP!
Finally! I've been waiting for an app that allows me to file a pirep without having to call LM.
About time! 5/5
Finally a non cumbersome way to report!!! Excellent app.
Awesome app! 5/5
App works great, submits PIREPs directly into the system.
