Black Friday
Amazing Black Friday Specials

Superlatives are easy but coming up with the biggest Black Friday sale in 15 years was really hard.  Yet we think we nailed it!  Problem is, we have to severely limit the quantities available at these prices so our accountant doesn't think we're mad.  Wonder what the specials are?   Click here.  And be sure to forward to all your pilot friends.

Documents and Groups
New! Private Groups of Documents in FlyQ and Importing Waypoints

Our new Groups feature is an amazing help to flying clubs, flight instructors, corporate flight departments, CFIs, and student pilots.

Now you can use FlyQ Online to create your own private groups of users -- friends, collegues, student, etc.  Then you can add private documents for just your group - POH, checklists, schedules, you name it!  These private documents are instantly available to everyone in your group using FlyQ EFB on the iPad or FlyQ Online on the Web.  Sharing has never been so easy!

We also just added an Import feature to FlyQ Online so you can quickly load dozens or even hundreds of Personal Waypoints with a simple click. The Personal Waypoints are instantly available in FlyQ EFB as well as FlyQ Online.
ICAO Flight Plan
ICAO Flight Plans Coming Soon

The FAA has mandated that all flight plans must be filed in the international ICAO format by late January.  We're working on it now for all FlyQ apps and Voyager.  We expect to be ready before the end of this year.

Mac Data Manager
Mac version of the ChartData Manager?

Holy cow, Batman!  Has hell frozen over?  Did the Cubs win the World Series?  Yes!

You asked for it and we're on it.  We have a team working on making a Mac version of our ChartData Manager to download data for Aspen, Dynon, Bendix-King, GRT, AFS, and our other ChartData partners. More info later.  
¬°Ole!  Mexican Charts on the Way

Our ChartData Group is busily expanding our coverage area.  A few months ago, we added Bahamas charts to all our ChartData products.  Now the group is working on Mexican charts and plates.  There are a lot of them so it will take a bit but the team is determined to get them in soon.  Next stop - the world!

Top Secret Project
Top-Secret App Clears Hurdle

Our skunkworks project is really taking shape now.  The work was split into two Milestones.  Milestone 1 was achieved and we're making excellent progress on Milestone 2.  Flight tests should begin soon.  You won't believe what this baby does!

SmartPlates & Charts
Free Charts and Plates for your iPhone

Every pilot I've ever met likes free stuff.  Did you know that you get our SmartPlates & Charts app for the iPhone is free when you subscribe to FlyQ EFB?

SmartPlates is the super-fast, super-easy way to get the emergency backup you need!
Way to go Dynon!
