We could sense it for a while but now it’s official! FlyQ EFB has pulled ahead of Garmin Pilot in terms of market share.
AOPA did a survey a few weeks ago asking people which mobile app they use. ForeFlight was #1 with just over half the market and FlyQ EFB was the #2 paid-for app behind it. Garmin Pilot was #4 — behind the generic Other category.
And, of course, FlyQ EFB has been the #1 rated major aviation in the App Store for 4 years: FlyQ EFB: 4.4, ForeFlight: 4.2, FltPlan Go: 3.9, WingX: 3.8, Garmin Pilot: 3.6
Full disclosure: FltPlan Go was 1% ahead of FlyQ EFB in the survey but we think it’s because the AOPA question specifically asked about mobile flight planning and lots of people use free FltPlan.com to plan then fly with other apps. That’s also why the table above specifically says “Paid-For App.”
