Takeoff was developed by pilots like you, who understand what information you need to fly safely. Other pilots agree:

"I love the presentation of information on the screen. The colors are great and the interpretations are pretty much idiot proof." -Adam Zucker, Pilot

"First thing I thought was WOW! I love how quick it is to get the information quickly into my brain. Love the maps and other weather graphics. Love the TAF decoder." -Andrew Ohnstad, Pilot

⚠ Takeoff relies on NOAA METAR and TAF reports. Airports must report METAR/TAF information in order for Takeoff to provide reports. Takeoff is not a substitute for official flight planning and weather information, and by using Takeoff, you agree not to hold the developers liable for any inaccuracies or misrepresentations. ⚠

    As a student I cam easily set my instructors solo endorsement restrictions so I can see at a glance if it's a fly day.

    Use this app to see if everything is within my minimums for aerobatics and tail dragger crosswinds. Quick glance at colors let's me know it's time to hit the airport, quick glance at the TFRs in the menu let's me know I'm not going to get intercepted by a F18. Great app!
