Announcing FlyQ EFB 4.5: The Weather Release

As you’ve probably noticed, it’s November and the weather is getting cold and nasty, making safe flying harder.  We noticed it, too, so new FlyQ EFB 4.5 is focussed on dramatically improving weather support in the app.  And by “dramatically,” I mean really, really dramatically!  Watch the video!

What FlyQ EFB 4.5 adds:

  • The app goes from having 7 weather layers to 21 weather layers!  The new layers include Cloud Tops, Cloud Bases, Turbulence, Icing, Lightning (both actual and predicted), PIREPs, Surface Analysis, Surface Winds, Ceilings, Visibility, Precipitation Type (snow, rain, etc.), Surface Temperature, and Dew Point Spread.
  • FlyQ now includes the new ADS-B products such as Lightning, Turbulence, Icing, and Cloud Tops as well as PIREPs.
  • All of the new ADS-B layers are also available when connected to the Internet (that is, before flight) so you can review Turbulence, Icing, PIREPs, Lightning, and Echo Tops before you fly or while you fly.
  • A Timeline with Predictive Radar!  You can move the timeline into the past to see how weather has recently changed or move it into the future to see how weather is expected to change during flight.  That includes Predictive Radar, TAFs, AIRMETs/SIGMETs, and Winds Aloft.
  • There is now a new Altitude Slider so you can see how things change at different altitudes.  That includes Winds Aloft, Icing, and Turbulence.

FlyQ EFB 4.5 is about to enter beta testing and will be extensively demoed during multiple free webinars next week.  Sign up for the webinars now as space is limited.
