FlyQ EFB 3.0 and FlyQ Online 1.0 Demos

Earlier this week we announced and demoed Fly EFB 3.0 and FlyQ Online 1.0 (our web-based planner for PC and Mac).  They are both MASSIVE updates, filled to the brim with powerful but easy to use features.  In case you missed the live presentations, here are the recorded (or, in one case, re-recorded) versions.  In addition to the full versions, we also made key features available as individual videos in case time is limited.

Dear fellow pilot,
If you logged into the Tuesday night webinar, you saw a number of technical glitches that were embarrassing, to say the least, and made it impossible to see many of the great new features in FlyQ EFB 3.0. As both presenter and CEO, I take full responsibility for the problems and deeply regret wasting your time.
Overnight, we recorded the presentation that you should have seen and put it on YouTube. We also split the full video into several small chunks on specific topics. I hope you have some time to review these videos as, while not perfect either, they better represent the dedication and hard work of the people who work at Seattle Avionics.
Links to the new videos:
Once again, please accept my deepest apologies for last night.
Everyone at Seattle Avionics sincerely wishes you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.
Steve Podradchik

FlyQ EFB 3.0 Announcement and Demo TODAY

At 4pm Pacific today, we’ll be formally announcing FlyQ EFB 3.0 and demonstrating it.  As the version number may imply, this is no minor release; rather, it’s the largest update we’ve ever done and includes the single most requested feature, a new feature that doesn’t exist in any EFB app, and a feature you’re going to love (esp. student pilots and flight instructors).  And .. during the demo, all attendees will be given the magic decoder ring to get our Black Friday specials before anyone else so sign up now!


Recording of the FlyQ Online Webinar Available

We had an incredible turnout today to the FlyQ Online presentation — by far, the largest online presentation of my life.  In my personal, totally unbiased opinion, I think it went very well and folks especially liked the new “4 Dimensional” weather with a timeline and altitude slider and the variety of export options including ForeFlight, Garmin, Dynon, and more.  But don’t take my word for it, watch the video!

Live Product Announcement at 4 PM Pacific Today

The Dev and Marketing teams at Seattle Avionics didn’t get a lot of sleep over the weekend because, in a few hours, we’ll be announcing two MAJOR new releases this week.

At 4pm Pacific today, we’re announcing the official release/demo of FlyQ Online, our web-based planner for PC and Mac.  Still time to join 1,000 other people who have already signed up!

Having just finished the dry-run of the presentation — OMG (as my daughter would say).  This is so far beyond the current version and beyond any competing planning app that OMG is just all I can say.  Prepare to be impressed.

Tomorrow, at 4pm, is the announcement and demo for FlyQ EFB version 3.0.  The feedback from the beta testers has been, to say the least, amazing.  “Home run!” was a phrase one used and others used similar sentiments – and they’ve only seen one of the new features!  Not only does it include the single-most commonly requested new feature, it includes a feature not found in any other EFB app in the world.  So, join me and (so far) 1,500 people for the live announcement.

To say that the dev team added scores of new features compared to the public beta you see now would be like saying that the World Series isn’t much different than a Little League game.  The new weather features, in particular, are WAY BEYOND anything on the market now.  Prepare to be amazed.

See you tonight,


Join us! Introducing FlyQ EFB 3.0 and FlyQ Online 1.0

See you soon,

Power Outage in Seattle Area

Update Nov 14, 7:15 AM Pacific:
Too early for anyone to be in the office yet but power has been restored so all should be back to normal.

At about 3pm Pacific today, strong winds in the Seattle area (we’re in Woodinville, WA if you know the area) took down the power to our offices and much of the Puget Sound area.  All of our critical systems are housed offsite and running normally but no one was in the office to answer phones.  The support staff is working from home if their homes have power and Internet but there may be some response delays until at least the morning.

Thanks, Steve

FlyQ EFB 3.0 Released to Beta Testers

I’m not going to get into the changes now (I love surprises!) but I did want everyone to know that we’ve released a MAJOR update to FlyQ EFB to our beta testers – FlyQ EFB  3.0.  If you’re on the beta list, check your email for more info.  This release has more changes, in terms of lines of code, than any version since 1.0.

And you’ll see a similar announcement for another app later this week.

We’ve been VERY, VERY busy!

Thanks, Steve
