Sporty’s says:

Garmin has a well-deserved reputation for making the best portable GPSs for pilots. Now many of these same great features are available on your iPhone and iPad, with the introduction of the Garmin Pilot aviation app. This comprehensive program includes all digital charts, from sectionals to IFR en route charts to approach plates, plus detailed airport data. In addition, the powerful flight planning page allows you to plan, brief and file flight plans. There’s even Garmin’s famous panel page view of GPS-derived flight instruments. Everything is easy to get to, with Garmin’s cockpit-friendly menu that mirrors current Garmin portables and the GTN line of panel navigators.

App description

Garmin Pilot is a comprehensive suite of tools for the iPhone and iPad, 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. Long-press any location on the map and the new Radial Menu provides easy access to navigation information, including: airports, navaids, current METARs, direct-to, airspaces, creating a waypoint and allowing for graphical editing of a flight plan.


With Garmin Pilot, users can easily enter a flight plan and interactively edit it on the map. 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, amend or close the flight plan via DTC DUAT or CSC DUATS. Electronic confirmations from DUAT(S) meet FAA legal briefing requirements.


Garmin Pilot provides full en-route navigation capability on its moving map, while showing ETE, ETA, crosstrack error, distance to waypoint and current position. Pilots can also navigate with Garmin’s patented panel, a GPS-driven instrument pack with a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude and vertical speed. After takeoff, pilots can continue to view real-time weather information by wirelessly connecting to Garmin’s GDL 39 ADS-B receiver (sold separately).

very easy to use and acces

Not Recommended

A decent program once you learn how to use it. Also, with the promotion, ($50) it was pretty affordable.
Takes way to long and you have to go to three separate tabs to plan a flight, program is not as intuitive as Foreflight, and it doesn't have very convenient ways of checking TAFS.

Customer Service was great, when I had issues learning to use the product the were extremely helpful, which is worth a lot. This should actually be a part of my product review, because I think we've all had poor customer service experiences and Garmin definitely is good in this area. Thanks!
