  1. I have throughly enjoyed flying with the Fly Q EFB. I’m even getting better at touching the screen while i’m Bumping along and actually get the screen to change after only two or three try’s. . I have two questions. #1 Is Seattle Avionics going to be at Airventure 2018? I would love to meet you guys. You have a great product and a great support staff and It has been very reliable and I couldn’t be happier. Question #2. Sometimes I would like to draw a line from point A to point B, just to see how far. I usually set up a flight plan and use that. But, if I’m playing around with several trips it’s very time consuming. It would be great if you could use a stylus to draw a line anywhere on the map and tap something and see the distance. Tap again and clear the screen. Just wondering if that’s possible or maybe in the future. Thanks again for all you guys do. . . Keep up the good works.

    • Hi Robert. Thanks for the kind words.

      Yup, been to OSH every year in the past 15 or so. Will also be doing seminars, have show specials, etc. In terms of measuring distance, use the Terrain X-Ray feature. Two fingers down on the map at the same time (one on each point). Look for Terrain X-Ray in the Pilot’s Guide for more details. I’m sure it’s also featured in several of the videos on YouTube.

      Thanks, Steve


    • Hi Andy, Restart device and verify its connected via WiFi, not cell. For more information on iOS updates please see Apple’s support site. Regards.


  2. Steve,

    In your announcement above, you use the phrase “with current shipping version”. Does that mean those of us testing the FlyQ beta should not update to iOS 11.4?



  3. Both my iPhone and my iPad show the current version to be 11.4. Should I wait until you have approved your programs for use with it? If so, when do you expect that Be?

    • Hi Lynn,

      I’m not sure I understand your question. This post was to tell everyone they can use FlyQ with iOS 11.4.

      Does this help?
