FlyQ Online – Update

We completed two major milestone for FlyQ Online (ATLAS) yesterday:

  • The replacement of old test data with current FAA data.
  • The addition of more than 4700 Seattle Avionics Airport Diagrams.

During the initial testing phase, we manually uploaded and managed the data for FlyQ Online but now we’ve migrated the system to using new data and put in the process required to keep the data current from now on.  This means the plates, airport diagrams, and digital data are now using the current, legal FAA data.

The new Seattle Avionics Airport Diagrams are a huge step forward because these very detailed diagrams cover nearly 5,000 US airports; the FAA diagrams cover about 700.  Even better, these diagrams have far more details about FBO locations than the FAA diagrams so it’s now easy to know where the FBOs are.  You’ll also see these diagrams in FlyQ EFB version 2.2 (now in beta testing).

Our new diagrams include coverage for almost every public airport in the continental US.  We’ll be expanding this to Alaska and Hawaii soon.  We’re constantly updating the data on these diagrams so be sure to email us (using the Feedback button on FlyQ Online) if you find any errors or omissions.

 

 

 

 

December 2016 ChartData Released

Happy New Year from everyone at Seattle Avionics!

The FAA updates data every 28 days (every 4th Thursday) and a new data cycle begins on Thursday.  We’ve now merged the FAA’s data with our proprietary ChartData and enabled downloads of the ChartData for the new cycle.

We update ChartData several days in advance of each cycle start date so you can download it early.  All US and EU data was made available earlier today.

If you haven’t already done so, please be sure to update your ChartData before you fly.

  • In FlyQ EFB:  Tap the ChartData Manager icon (the “down arrow” icon), review which states you have selected, then tap Update Now.
  • In FlyQ Pocket: Select the Downloads tab on the bottom of the screen and tap Update Now.
  • For apps and devices that use our Data Manager, run the Data 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.

New FlyQ Pocket: Now Free to All Pilots!

FlyQ Pocket 2.2 is now available for the iPhone and iPad.  FlyQ Pocket is the most popular aviation app around with detailed airport information, aviation weather, and flight planning.  All for free!  More info.

We’re very excited to announce that this new version no longer requires an AOPA membership so it’s now 100% free to all pilots!

Download Now!

Note:  If you search for FlyQ Pocket, the App Store may list AOPA FlyQ Pocket  rather than FlyQ Pocket.  If so, ignore the AOPA part and select the item; it will download the new FlyQ Pocket from Seattle Avionics.  We don’t know why Apple still lists it as AOPA FlyQ Pocket in search results.

Note: FlyQ Pocket is an iPhone app but, like all iPhone apps, it also runs on the iPad.  However, by default the App Store on the iPad hides iPhone apps.  If you can’t find or download FlyQ Pocket on your iPad, simply change the iPad Only switch at the top to iPhone Only.

Version 2.2 also includes a number of bug fixes and updates for newer versions of iOS.

If you already have the older AOPA FlyQ Pocket, no need to uninstall your current app; just update it:

Go to your iPhone or iPad then:

1. Open the App Store app on your iPhone or iPad (usually on the first Home page).
2. Within the App Store, tap the Updates tab at the bottom.
3. Look for FlyQ Pocket and tap the Update button next to it.

Tip: You can have the iPhone or iPad automatically do updates for all apps in the future. This saves a lot of time! To do that:

1. Go to the Settings app on the iPad or iPhone.
2. Tap the iTunes & App Store item on the left side of the screen (might need to scroll down to see it).
3. Turn the switch next to Updates ON (green).
