Aithre Connect supports flight safety for pilots and passengers in private aviation with comprehensive hypoxia monitoring and oxygen system control.
The Aithre Connect app is used to manage Aithre hardware devices for use by pilots in the general private aviation space. The Aithre Connect app includes a WatchOS companion app.
SMART OXYGEN SYSTEM. The Aithre Avi smart pulse system is controllable with a push button and also using the in-app user specified settings. Merely by opening the app the oxygen endurance is substantially increased by adjusting the volume of oxygen to the pressure altitude of the cabin. Additionally, the app enables selection of automatic oxygen on/off modes based on pressure altitude, carbon monoxide levels, or pulse oximetry levels; the oxygen flow will start and stop automatically based on these settings. The Avi further includes smart pulse technology to enable oxygen conservation during flight by timing the delivery of oxygen to inhalation.
PORTABLE OXYGEN TANK MONITORING. The Aithre Altus is a wireless enabled portable oxygen pressure monitor that puts oxygen tank pressure readings on your iOS and WatchOS device. Notifications are provided for low pressure levels and a reminder is provided to turn off the oxygen on landing. The PSI can also be displayed on glass panel avionics, including G3X and Dynon when used with the Aithre Shield EX3.
PULSE OXIMETRY. The Aithre Illyrian is a wireless enabled smart pulse oximeter with red/infrared dual channels that can be worn on the center forehead or under the earlobe for continuous readings even with movement and activity. Using a flat, low profile sensor pad and simple USB power, the Illyrian oximeter broadcasts pulse rate and blood oxygen data to your iOS and companion WatchOS. The data is presented in real-time and in a trend graph including up to 12 hours of data - along with pressure altitude information. Notification is provided for drops in oxygen percentage. The pulse oximetry can also be displayed on glass panel avionics, including G3X and Dynon when used with the Aithre Shield EX3.
CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR. The Aithre Shield is a wireless enabled carbon monoxide detector that is highly sensitive and portable. CO levels and trend data is transmitted wirelessly in real-time to your iOS and your WatchOS device and to your paired aviation headset for intuitive SIRI notifications. The carbon monoxide data can also be displayed on glass panel avionics, including G3X and Dynon when used with the Aithre Shield EX3.
TURBULENCE. The Aithre Connect app further monitors acceleration in any direction and plots the max acceleration/g-force every 12 seconds. This historical acceleration data is useful in determining the comfort of your passengers during flight or for monitoring g forces during aerobatic flight.
TRIP HISTORY. When used with the Illyrian and/or Shield devices, the trip history feature keeps health and CO data for each trip. These trips are accessible within the app and as external CSV files (spreadsheet files).
AITHRE BEACONS. View near-real-time conditions for precision 3D coordinates in space as reported and provided by aircraft. The turbulence is shared automatically via the included in-app turbulence monitor. Aircraft with the installed Aithre Metis weather system also contribute near-real-time temperature, humidity, and dew point levels from actual flight recordings. All data is anonymous and private and there is no login ever required.
AITHRE ASSISTANT. This assistant enables quick speech based lookup of frequencies for airports, airport information, and runway information. Quick airport frequency lookups and ATIS can be asked for and provided via a paired aviation headset.
CHECKLISTS. Create custom checklists for quick access and readout via your paired aviation headset. Quickly review and check-off items to support safety of flight.
Version 14.0 adds support for the new Aithre Healthview avionics display and includes bug fixes, including an improvement to audible safety warnings.
Ratings and Reviews
Great products, occasionally frustrating app.
So far I haven’t figured out how to hide devices I don’t have. I have the pulse ox and CO monitor, but for some reason the app insists on showing me the system pressure for a system I don’t have and will never have (my plane has built in and I have an O2 concentrator for day to day). I really want to hide that from both the top strip in the app and from the watch app because it shoves CO out of view (bad!) but can’t seem to find a way to do so. Usual tap hold, drag, etc doesn’t do it and show hide doesn’t appear to be in the settings.

The app has a setting option in the settings page for a default home screen. You can choose Carbon Monoxide Shield and will only see that page. There are many settings that users tend to overlook, so 13.3 uploaded today has improved the location of the settings, the navigation buttons, and the user interface for a better experience. We work on the app continuously in-house so there will always be improvements and we work to incorporate user feedback.
Crashed and corrupted
Crashed and corrupted after about an hour in the air on my iPad that i use for foreflight. After this I could not get the app to launch again, had to delete and reinstall. Fortunately my phone is my backup efb and i had this app on it as well, so i continued on at FL180 with my phone monitoring spo2. I have some gripes with the interface though. There’s no way to get rid of the pirep screen or unused “data blocks” at the top. It would be nice to be able to clean up the interface and only show elements relevant to the devices that are paired. The angel button is particularly bad because it covers up part of the UI and is related to a device that has to be wired into the plane.
One thing worrisome is how long it takes for the illyrian to realize that it has come off your skin, i had that happen on my first flight using it and puckered up a little when i saw 75% spo2, but then discovered the sensor slipped out from under my earcup.
Aithre is a good company with good products, but needs a little polish on the software to work out some kinks.

Sorry to hear you are not satisfied, but we hear your gripes. We have lots of technology that must come together to make it possible and we try to update the app as much as possible. It is not static and we do try to incorporate user feedback. Version 13.3 has been uploaded today and should be available for download and will improve many of the areas you mentioned. Note you can set a default page in the main settings tab so you don't have to see areas you don't want. Also, Angel has been tucked further from view and the navigations buttons and settings locations have been improved.
Disappointed to find that it does not rotate? Frequently pilots use their iPads in landscape mode or upside down. I contacted the developer. They listened. It now rotates. Changed my rating. Does not allow to change degrees from Celsius to Fahrenheit.

Version 7.8 now allows landscape or portrait mode for iPad and also split screen and multitasking.
