Plan. File. Fly.

Garmin Pilot is the most comprehensive suite of tools for Android designed specifically for general aviation and corporate pilots. Flight planning, DUAT(S) filing, charts, interactive maps, weather briefing resources and navigation capabilities; it’s all included. The app’s intuitive interface mirrors those on the newest Garmin touchscreen avionics so you can go seamlessly from preflight to inflight. Plan, file, fly with Garmin Pilot.


Garmin Pilot’s powerful capabilities start with pre-flight planning, providing pilots with the most comprehensive aviation weather information to make better-informed flight decisions. Pilots can check NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, PIREPs, TFRs and lightning data. With Garmin Pilot, data can be displayed over a VFR sectional or an IFR low or high en-route chart to visualize the weather for your route. Add text-based weather widgets and use the exclusive NavTrack feature to view weather along the planned route.


With Garmin Pilot, users can easily enter a flight plan. Pre-loaded forms make it quick to save and reuse data for frequently flown routes. And when the flight plan is ready, Garmin Pilot makes it simple to file, cancel or close the flight plan via DTC DUAT or CSC DUATS.


Garmin Pilot provides full en-route navigation capability on its moving map, while showing ETE, ETA, cross track error, distance to waypoint and current position.

    It's not as good as foreflight but for those of us with android phones its the best app out there. It gives me all the information I need and I have never had a problem with it. Best of all its tfr updates are spot on a warn me days before they are active. The user infterface is the best I have seen. Very very good app. As a cfi I recommend this app.

    Minor bugs, but overall one of the best aviation apps available.

    While I really like the interface of Garmin pilot, it's still lacking a lot of features and functionality that I think would really make it go from being a good nav product to an excellent complete fligh bag. Additionally, every update seems to be pretty buggy, and their tech support is kind of slow in responding. in fairness, any issues I have they have resolved, but it usually took a while. As f

    Cannot compete with foreflight until more features are added. To name a few: weight and balance, checklist, viewing PDF files, profile terrain view, recording GPS data, recording voice data, better flight planning, viewing weather charts...
