Description

The reliable and straightforward Aviation Maps for Pilots and aerospace enthusiasts around the world. Simply choose any 5 by 5 degree area on earth and download relevant data for offline use. The map features over 50000 airports and 11000 navaids around the globe, just as airspaces for currently 42 countries on all continents (except Antarctica).

For clarity and commonality to paper charts the map is themed in the style of ICAO Annex 4 (Aeronautical Charts). The app is suited for pre-flight route planning with wind and fuel calculations, as well as in-flight navigation. To get the latest weather for more than 9500 airports it is integrated with Avia Weather.

This is a trial app with full features. After an evaluation period of 30 days you will have to do an in-app purchase of $9.99 (might vary in your currency). There will be no recurring charges.
