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.

    As good as you can get on Android since Foreflight is not available. Use it as a backup on my Samsung Galaxy IV.

    The map is pretty good, but that's it. I want to use this for IFR charts and it has no good way to quickly pull up charts. There's nothing simple about it. Way too many menu clicks to find everything! I don't think the designers actually tested this while flying. It's very frustrating to use in the air.

    I've used Garmin Pilot on a Nexus 7 (1st Generation) for the last two years, and have watched the application grow and improve. I've been very happy with it's functionality and ease of use. I recently purchased a Nexus 9 and look forward to using Garmin Pilot on it after they fix the bug related specifically to the Nexus 9. That being said, Garmin Pilot still lags pretty far behind Foreflight in

    I don't know what else I could ask of the app. It does everything I could need plus it can connect to your G430 WAAS with the flightstream box.
