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.

    Adding the ability to change the altimeter settings will make the panel that much accurate. I have been using this more and more during my cross-country flights and it has been pretty spot-on. I just started to use the flight planning tools and have been able to file the route right from the app ( I receive a confirmation email and FSS has it on file). Used on Nexus 10 tablet. Thanks Adolfo

    Would like it more if I could use it on my nokia windows phone. 3 stars until then.

    The only thing that could make it better is the subscription prices decreasing. Other than that 5 stars!

    The updates have been steadily improving this app, and I am very satisfied. The newer features (pinch to measure, customizable VFR and I'm maps, distance rings, etc.) are a huge improvement. I wish there was a copy of the AF/D and FAR/AIM like some other products though. Only major gripe is the update has seemed to slow down the performance of the app on both my phone and tablet.

    Get foreflight. This isn't nearly as thorough. Tough to use, poor design, missing several arrivals / fixes, map overlays are missing airfields / labels, approaches out of date. Kind of the classic Garmin under-designed UI. Not worth paying for something that doesn't have all the features to keep you safe.

    No update in months, what happen to terrain following? iPads had them for months.

    But no terrain avoidance.
