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.

    The app works well in most situations, but the 4.0 update seemed to slow it down significantly. It notified me of a chart update and now the app crashes on start up and will not run.

    On my second XC with Garmin Pilot it failed to close my flight plan, despite the interface indicating it was closed. The interface indicates that it is capable of closing flight plans. I've only used it this one time, but since I got a call from Lockheed Martin FSS afterwards I don't feel I can trust the app to handle this for me. This is a really screwed up thing to mess up and should be imple

    Installed version 4.0. App opens and downloads small dataset. App runs but seems noticeable slower than earlier version. When downloading newset maps, Pilot crashes and app is bricked. Uninstall. Repeat process three times. Same behavior each time. Not happy :-( Stick with previous version until this one is fixed.

    Worth the subscription price but still needs to rounding off on the edges.

    Nice app but bug fixes are slow to come and support is a joke. Garmin usually makes good products but this one just doesn't get the resources necessary to keep up in the market. I am thinking of going apple with forefloght
