FlyQ EFB 3.0, FlyQ Online, NW Aviation Show
Flight Log
Feb. 2018
Dear fellow pilot,

Is it really February already?  It's been crazy-busy at Seattle Avionics lately, with the release of FlyQ EFB 3.0 (easily our most-anticipated release ever) and FlyQ Online for PC and Mac.  Sign up for the free Webinar this Tuesday about FlyQ EFB 3.0 and see why it's getting so much attention.  Then, in just a few days (Feb 24-25), come to Puyallup, WA and visit us at the annual Northwest Aviation show ( Booth #108).

There is a lot in this issue but here are some of the key points:

I'm Steve Podradchik, the CEO here. I write the newsletter so email me personally if there is something you'd like me to cover next month.  And use the "Follow" feature on our Blog to keep up with daily news, product info, and more.

To say that FlyQ EFB 3.0 was anticipated would be quite an understatement.  The full iPhone support, in particular, was even more eagerly anticipated than someone besides the Patriots winning the Super Bowl (just kidding).  FlyQ EFB on the iPhone has all the same features as it does on the iPad except split-screen (due to the smaller screen size).

It also includes the amazing Augmented Reality (AR) system from FlyQ InSight, a comprehensive flight recording / playback / export system, helicopter overlays, and charts/plates for Mexico and Central America.  And lots of fixes and performance improvements.

FlyQ Online
New FlyQ Online for PC and Mac

Reviewing weather and planning a flight is always easier on a 25 inch screen with a keyboard and mouse rather than an iPad.

Now FlyQ Online, a free web-based app for your PC or Mac, brings weather analysis to a whole new level with our exclusive "4D" weather that adds a timeline and an altitude slider so you can see how weather is expected to changer over time and at different altitudes.

FlyQ Online automatically optimizes your flights for winds aloft and finds you the least expensive fuel along the way.

Automatically syncs with FlyQ EFB and exports to Garmin panels, ForeFlight, Dynon/AFS, and Google Earth.

NW Aviation Show
Northwest Aviation Show
Feb. 24-25

We love all aviation shows but we really love aviation shows that are close enough to get us home for dinner -- like the Northwest Aviation Conference and Tradeshow in Puyallup, WA.  We're in the same booth as last year, #108 where we'll demo the apps, answer whatever questions you have, and, of course, offer show-only discounts.

We're doing two presentations this year:

Saturday, 1 PM, Augmented Reality in the Cockpit.  Pioneer Room (B)
Sunday, 10:15 AM, Combing Web-based Flight Planning with iPad Apps.  Pioneer Room (B)

Mexico and Central America
Mexico and Central America

If you fly south of the border, we now have you covered with geo-referenced approach plates and airport diagrams for Mexico and most of Central America (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua).  That applies to FlyQ EFB, Dynon, Aspen, Bendix-King, AFS, GRT, etc.  Airport diagrams are part of all VFR subscriptions and IFR subscriptions add the approach plates.  No additional charge!

iOS 11
iOS 11.2.5: Good to go

Sometimes it feels like testing new versions of iOS is a full-time job.  Luckily it's not mine.  The folks in the lab have tested FlyQ EFB and FlyQ InSight found no issues with Apple's newest OS.
T-41 Mustang
Building a T-51 Mustang

Starting with this issue, I'd like to highlight interesting adventures in aviation in every newsletter.   Email me if you have some ideas.

Is it just me or does the whole idea of building a replica Mustang with your sons' help -- in your dining room -- just put a big grin on your face?  This is what Jeff Simon, founder and President of, is doing right now and I'm jealous.
