FlyQ EFB 4.5
Best. Weather. Ever.
Put simply, version 4.5 gives FlyQ EFB the most intuitive, most visual, and most helpful way to evaluate aviation weather in any mobile app. Period.
- 16 weather layers (up from 7). Now includes Icing, Turbulence, Lightning, Surface Winds, Surface Analysis, and more
- Timeline: See weather in the past or predicted during your flight
- Altitude Slider: Evaluate weather at different altitudes
- Supports the new ADS-B weather products
- Works almost identically using either the Internet or more than 20 ADS-B receivers
UPDATE: FlyQ EFB 4.5.2 has now also been released. It adds a much easier to see bottom tab bar and an option to help pilots with color blindness see the radar images more clearly. Read more.
Flying is 3D dimensional so why just evaluate weather risks from an old-style 2D perspective? With our new Altitude Slider, move the slider up and down to see how Winds Aloft, Cloud Tops, Icing, and Turbulence vary with altitude.
The only thing predictable about weather is that it will change. With the new Timeline, you can preview the weather you’ll see during your flight simply by dragging the Timeline. Our incredible Predictive Radar gives you a glimpse into the future. You’ll also see how METARs/TAFs, Winds Aloft, Surface Winds, Surface Analysis, Icing, and Turbulence are expected to change.
FlyQ has always had great radar but version 4.5 takes things to a new dimension – the future! Using the Timeline, see what radar was like a few hours ago, right now, or even see radar predicted during the next hour! Use animated radar for a quick read or get a detailed analysis with the new high-resolution radar.
Turbulence and Icing
No one likes turbulence and icing can kill. With FlyQ EFB 4.5, we’ve got you covered both pre-flight (Internet) and in-flight (ADS-B). Use the Timeline to see how icing and turbulence have changed and are expected to change in the future. Use the Altitude Slider to see the differences at various altitudes.
During takeoff or landing, it’s often useful — if not critical — to know where the cloud base is. We make it simple by color-coding the areas. See green? The cloud bases are at least 6,000 ft. AGL. Red? Clouds begin less than 2,500 ft AGL. Yellow or orange? Somewhere in between.
Staying clear of the clouds can be hard to predict. But not with FlyQ EFB 4.5! Simply move the Altitude Slider up and down and watch the colors on the map. If you see blue, you’re in the clouds at that altitude; see light grey and you’re above them.
Lightning is dangerous but FlyQ makes it easy to avoid. During pre-flight planning, you’ll see lightning from around the world. In flight, see lightning via your ADS-B receiver. Like most things in FlyQ, the threat level is color coded: Red (severe), Orange (medium), and Yellow (light).
Landing and taking off can be challenging given the wrong winds. FlyQ makes it easy to know what you’re facing with the new Surface Winds layer. Simple color coding, clear direction indicators, and detailed speed markers make go, no-go decisions easy.
FlyQ now supplies you with time-based Surface Analysis graphs. See the expected Fronts, Highs, Lows, and more at different times in the future.
FlyQ gets PIREPs from either the Internet or your ADS-B receiver. Turn on Turbulence and turbulence PIREPs appear. Show Icing and icing PIREPs appear. Or turn the PIREP layer on and see all PIREPs.
16 Layers & a Legend
FlyQ includes 16 insightful weather layers (3 Radar, 2 Satellite, METARs/TAFs, Lightning, Winds Aloft, Surface Winds, Cloud Tops, Cloud Bases, Turbulence, Icing, SIG/AIRMETs, PIREPs, and Surface Analysis).
Given all these layers, you’ll see a lot of colors and symbols. That’s why a zoomable Legend is just a tap away!
