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.

    Works pretty well. It pretty intuitive, but does have a learning curve to get it to work smoothly, or you to work it smoothly with it. Has both Rastered Sectionals and Vector Maps. The Vector maps work better, but the Raster maps are more traditional. Its the best flight app on Android. It you are coming from iOS, its no Foreflight, which maybe the best in flight app, but its pretty close. A

    I am a Garmin fan and have 7 devices from handhelds to marine to aviation. I am also not a fan of Apple so I stick with android devices. This app is one of the best android apps out there but doesn't make the cut. The Apple version works so much better and has many more features for the same price. After promises after promises still not the features the Apple version had a year ago. The other big

    The app works well on my nexus 9 but it drains battery when I'm not using it. I close the app and force stop it and it still manages to keep my device awake and use the GPS. Its unacceptable to have this app use 40+ percent of my battery on standby with it not running.
