TRUSTED BY PILOTS. DEVELOPED BY PILOTS.
Takeoff was developed by pilots like you, who understand what information you need to fly safely. Other pilots agree:
"I love the presentation of information on the screen. The colors are great and the interpretations are pretty much idiot proof." -Adam Zucker, Pilot
"First thing I thought was WOW! I love how quick it is to get the information quickly into my brain. Love the maps and other weather graphics. Love the TAF decoder." -Andrew Ohnstad, Pilot
Takeoff relies on NOAA METAR and TAF reports. Airports must report METAR/TAF information in order for Takeoff to provide reports. Takeoff is not a substitute for official flight planning and weather information, and by using Takeoff, you agree not to hold the developers liable for any inaccuracies or misrepresentations.

Ratings and Reviews
Like it now, issues addressed
I'm a flight instructor, and was quite excited to find this program with it's very appealing graphical interface. "Unfortunately it at times provides grossly inaccurate crosswind wind calculations."
These issues appear to have been addressed.
I will double-check results and hope all is fixed.
Horrible - not worth the money
If you need an app to tell you what your personal minimums are you shouldn’t be flying an airplane. Any reputable flight app already tells you what you need to know just by looking at the weather forecast. On top of that, I can’t pull up several larger airports in this app. Airport identifiers are correct (checked in ForeFlight) but aren’t found in this app, even after changing the distance from my location to the maximum. I would have given this zero stars if it was an option. Don’t waste your time or money.
Outstanding use of technology
You can get several aviation weather apps that get you weather data. These guys went one big step further - rather than just spitting the data back out in another format they transform it into very useful information. Combining weather with personal minimums is brilliant, that is really what we do every time we get aviation weather. What we want to know is, can we fly? This app makes that easy to see at a glance. It is now my first stop for flight planning.
