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.

    Now every time I open it, it crashes the second it gets a GPS signal, bluetooth OR internal. Just had to scrub a flight because of this. Thanks, but no thanks. I DO NOT want to give Apple my money. Thanks for screwing up, Garmin. Galaxy Note 8 UPDA

    I hate Apple, I didn't want to buy a new iPad. I wanted to love this as much as foreflight, but it's back to the store to get a mini, and renew my foreflight subscription. Thanks for forcing me to keep feeding the evil empire that is Apple more of my dank

    NOTAMS for my home airport (KMQY) are not even close to what the FAA has on their NOTAM website. Where on earth do you get your NOTAM data and why is it so out of date? Unsafe and not legal. I e-mailed your help and as of yet no response. Needs to be

    Works great. GDL39 makes xm weather obsolete.

    So far the only thing I see missing is a quick distance measuring tool. Something like a two-finger long press would be nice. This seems unavailable at least for the Nexus 7.

    I wish you would update this app to the same quality as the apple version. Its sad how much you neglect your android customers compared to the apple one, and charge higher prices for a lower quality app

    After the latest update it crashes even more often than ever. As an instrument pilot I rely on this app and it must work. And this one doesn't. After spending $125 I still rely on my paper IAP charts. What is the point then? I have many free apps much mo
