FlyQ EFB, for both iPad and iPhone, is a top-rated aviation app because it makes your flying easier and safer by thoughtfully integrating powerful features in a way that minimizes the number of screen taps and uses larger fonts to increase readability. Subscriptions are reasonably priced, starting at just US $69.
The amazing new Visual Logbook and Post Flight Playback / Analysis Graphs add a whole new dimension to your flying. The optional new Floq Network can connect you with your friends to "see" and even replay their flights. Floq can be used by CFI's to track student progress and remotely send endorsements.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Very cockpit friendly
Very concise user interface which is not crowded with options as with other EFB-type software, even on a small screen footprint. This is a big plus when trying to fly the plane and navigate the EFB-user interface. Looking foreword to a weight and balance feature with pdf/png/jpg Dropbox/google-drive/mail upload feature. An inflight glide-ring might be a plus feature in a future release.
One of my favorite features is the indicated wind-speed vane relative to the airport runways. A relative crosswind reference for each runway might be nice, however, the lack of that feature doesn’t diminish the effectiveness of it’s current function. I currently subscribe to both foreflight and Fly/Q. Fly/Q is by far easier to learn.
Reliable easy to use and capable.
App Store for FlyQ
For the past year I have used FlyQ in our Cessna 182 with the G1000 Nav III package along with the Merlin ADS-B receiver and have found it extremely easy to use and very reliable.
Having flown for more than 50 years as an instrument rated pilot it is stunning how much information is presented in such a usable fashion to help get the needed big picture and then drill down to the details needed for accurate planning in challenging conditions. It is also gives me a great sense of security knowing that despite having an excellent Nav system and back up instruments that the FlyQ/Merlin system gives me a completely independent system for back up using my tablet to navigate if the G1000 goes dark would be my first choice, the back up instruments would be a fall back because the AHRS in the Merlin package is so stable. I am using another EFB system as well but prefer the FlyQ for inflight use and preflight planning.
New VFR user
I sampled 3 EFBs before deciding on FlyQ. I found it to be the easiest to learn and use. I actually used the 30 day free trial and my wife's old iPad to fly a Piper Cherokee 140 from First Flight airport (FFA) in North Carolina to Guthrie Edmond Regional (GOK) in Oklahoma. As soon as I got home, I bought my own iPad mini and paid my annual subscription for FlyQ. I also canceled my VFR Chart subscription with Sportys. That alone will more than balance the cost of the FlyQ annual subscription. I have always had current paper charts but now I can pay less once a year and have ALL the charts.
I'm not really looking forward to buying ADS-B out. But I am looking forward to having ADS-B in because of the in-flight weather and traffic. I expect a high percentage of general aviation to forgo ADS-B out, but at least I'll be able to see all commercial and regional traffic right on the iPad! I feel safer already.
Thanks to all those at Seattle Avionics for making FlyQ EFB such a great app. It has it all and I love it.
One year later...
I built the dual band Stratux ADS-B-In receiver using the Raspberry kit. All for under $100. It works perfectly with FlyQ!!! Now I see traffic and weather on the latest sectional charts and my actual flight path. Very slick! Seattle Avionics keeps getting better.
I expect to get the least expensive ADS-B-Out when it is required. Maybe the new uAvionix wingtip unit or a Garmin GDL 82.
