Remember that this includes new version 4.5 with massively upgraded weather: 3X more weather layers (21 vs. 7), Predictive Radar, new Timeline and Altitude Slider, Lightning, PIREPs, Echo Tops, Cloud Base, Cloud Tops, Surface Analysis, Icing, Turbulence, and many more — most work with both ADS-B and Internet weather!

And you’ll soon see Weight & Balance, a Profile View, Audible warnings, one-tap to add IFR Procedure points, and more!

Announcing FlyQ EFB 4.5: The Weather Release

As you’ve probably noticed, it’s November and the weather is getting cold and nasty, making safe flying harder.  We noticed it, too, so new FlyQ EFB 4.5 is focussed on dramatically improving weather support in the app.  And by “dramatically,” I mean really, really dramatically!  Watch the video!

What FlyQ EFB 4.5 adds:

  • The app goes from having 7 weather layers to 21 weather layers!  The new layers include Cloud Tops, Cloud Bases, Turbulence, Icing, Lightning (both actual and predicted), PIREPs, Surface Analysis, Surface Winds, Ceilings, Visibility, Precipitation Type (snow, rain, etc.), Surface Temperature, and Dew Point Spread.
  • FlyQ now includes the new ADS-B products such as Lightning, Turbulence, Icing, and Cloud Tops as well as PIREPs.
  • All of the new ADS-B layers are also available when connected to the Internet (that is, before flight) so you can review Turbulence, Icing, PIREPs, Lightning, and Echo Tops before you fly or while you fly.
  • A Timeline with Predictive Radar!  You can move the timeline into the past to see how weather has recently changed or move it into the future to see how weather is expected to change during flight.  That includes Predictive Radar, TAFs, AIRMETs/SIGMETs, and Winds Aloft.
  • There is now a new Altitude Slider so you can see how things change at different altitudes.  That includes Winds Aloft, Icing, and Turbulence.

FlyQ EFB 4.5 is about to enter beta testing and will be extensively demoed during multiple free webinars next week.  Sign up for the webinars now as space is limited.

November 7, 2019 ChartData Released

FlyQ EFB 4.0.1 has just been released.  And that’s on top of FlyQ EFB 4.0 which added incredible post-flight features including a Visual LogbookVisual Playback (2D and 3D) and Analysis Graphs, the Floq network to connect with your fellow pilots, and great new CFI/Student features.  Learn more, read what the press says about it, download a free 30 day trial now, or watch some of the more than 80 videos we have on YouTube.


The next FAA data cycle begins next Thursday, November 7, 2019 and the new ChartData is available for download now.  New data is now available for the US, Mexico, and Central America.  European and Australian data will be ready shortly.  Be sure not to fly with this data until November 7.

If you’re using another data provider, check with them about availability.

Important notes for FlyQ EFB user:  Please do not download this new data if you plan to fly before Thursday as the app does not currently have any concept of “current” versus “next” data cycle.  However, FlyQ EFB downloads TFRs, fuel prices, and weather automatically so rest assured that this data will always be current even without doing a manual update

Also, read this terrific post from Keith R if you use our ChartData Managerapplication for Windows to update your data.  It explains how to automatically download data and even copy data to a card or USB memory stick without any clicks!  No need to sit and wait for data to download or copy.

  • In FlyQ EFB:  Tap the ChartData Manager icon (the “down arrow” icon), review which states you have selected, then tap Update Now.
  • In FlyQ InSight or FlyQ Pocket: Select the Downloads tab on the bottom of the screen and tap Update Now.
  • In FlyQ Online:  Nothing to download.  Just go to https://flyq.seattleavionics.com and the new data is automatically used when the new cycle begins on Thursday (but not before).
  • For apps and devices that use our Data Manager, run the ChartData Manager (or select Settings from the little icon at the lower right corner of your Windows screen) and tap Update Now.
  • In Voyager, select Update Data from the Tools menu then choose the All Monthly ChartData item.

If you need to renew your subscription, click the appropriate link below:

Note that FlyQ Online (our Web-based flight planner) ChartData is enabled automatically on the day the new cycle begins (Thursday) so what you see is always the current, legal data.  Unlike data for our apps and devices, we do not release FlyQ Online ChartData ahead of time since there is nothing to download.

Congrats Nats!

Wow!  Now that was fun to watch — especially the last two games!

Everyone (well, almost everyone) at Seattle Avionics would like to wish the Nats and their faithful fans congratulations on their unexpected and hard-fought World Series victory last night.  We’d also like to congratulate Astro fans for supporting a great team that kept fighting until the very end; I thought the last batter would be swatting foul balls all night.

One thing, Nats fans:  Can you please send the Mariners some good luck as we’re now the only MLB team to never be in (let alone win) a World Series?
