Black Friday, FlyQ EFB 4.0 Live Announcement, and Webinars this Week

Big week at Seattle Avionics!

First .. if you haven’t yet signed up for the live streaming FlyQ EFB 4.0 (“Red Barn”) announcement next Monday, do so right now as we have limited slots and, based on response from last year, we’re already very close the maximum number of attendees.  Also, our annual (and always amazing) Black Friday specials begin next Wednesday and they’re quantity limited.  Be sure to sign-up now for special early access.

Now … in preparation for FlyQ EFB 4.0 and Black Friday, we’re doing a series of live webinars THIS WEEK.  They’re all free and cover different aspects of the app.  And all attendees get a coupon good for 20% off a regularly-priced subscription.

Wednesday, Nov 14:  Catch up on all the new features added this year! We added a lot this year — iPhone version, Augmented Reality, recently cleared ATC routes, animated radar, ADS-B tail numbers with our exclusive Buddy List, flight recorder, Slingshot wireless updater for in-panel devices, and much more.

Thursday, Nov 15: Intro to the FlyQ Family. Learn best-practices for combining FlyQ EFB (iPad/iPhone) with FlyQ Online (Web — PC and Mac) and with FlyQ InSight (iOS) and Pocket (Android).  Used together, they give you an unrivaled pre-flight weather/planning and inflight solution.

Friday, Nov 16: Advanced FlyQ EFB.  Been using FlyQ EFB for a while?  Bet there are still many tips, tricks, and features you don’t know about that can make your flying easier and safer.

November 8, 2018 ChartData Released

The next FAA data cycle begins next Thursday, November 8, 2018.  We try to release ChartData the Friday before the new cycle starts.  As that’s today, the new data is now ready for download.  However, be sure not to fly with this data until November 8.

Important notes for FlyQ EFB user:  Please do not download this new data if you plan to fly before next Thursday as the app does not currently (hint hint) 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

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 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.

Note that FlyQ Online (our Web-based flight planner) ChartData is enabled automatically on the day the new cycle begins (next 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.
