Plan Your Flight
Garmin Pilot provides instant access to comprehensive U.S. and Canada weather data — including NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, TFRs and lightning data — as it becomes available.
View animated NEXRAD radar, check upper-level winds and temperatures and identify cells that might produce lightning. Overlay a variety of weather options on the map screen to see how cloud cover or precipitation will affect your flight. The exclusive NavTrack feature lets you preview how changing weather conditions might alter your flight. The app also provides fuel prices along your route to help you plan the most economical flight.
The app provides ATC preferred routes that can help ensure the route you submit is accepted as-is. Preferred routes are a summary of routes that have been cleared by the FAA to other aircraft flying the same departure/destination pairs. By using a preferred route, you can minimize the likelihood of last-minute or enroute changes.
File Your Flight Plan
Start by entering your desired route to view it on the map screen. From there, easily overlay weather, pan across the entire route, pinch to zoom for detail, or graphically modify any leg of your flight. The app serves as a legal source of weather briefing. Built-in calculators estimate fuel burn, enroute legs and arrival times for your flight. Use preloaded forms to save and reuse clearance data for frequently flown flight plans.
When you’re ready, easily file, amend and close the flight plan you create directly from your device via DTC DUAT or CSC DUATS. Garmin Pilot allows you to save your pilot, aircraft and flight plan information to the cloud, so you don’t have to re-enter information every time you transfer devices. Just log in to your Garmin Pilot account to access your pilot profile.
Fly with Precision
Using your device’s built-in GPS receiver (or compatible external receiver, sold separately), Garmin Pilot provides full enroute navigation on the moving map display. Our patented Panel Page provides situational awareness, including a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude, rate of turn and vertical speed.
A unique Radial Menu provides easy onscreen access to create a user waypoint or navigate Direct-To, as well as view current weather conditions and airport/navaid information at a glance.The app also automatically keeps track of your ETE, ETA, crosstrack error, distance to waypoint, current position and more.
With an optional GDL 39 receiver, you can receive subscription-free weather and datalink traffic while in flight. SiriusXM™ Satellite Weather is also available with an optional third-party receiver. The GDL 39 provides Garmin’s exclusive TargetTrend™ relative motion providing an easy-to-interpret picture of aircraft trajectories. It also provides SURF technology which displays ADS-B-equipped surface aircraft and other ground vehicles right on the optional SafeTaxi diagrams.
Add Attitude and Fly in Virtual 3-D
The GDL 39 3D provides the same ADS-B traffic and weather, but also adds backup attitude indication that enables SVX™ synthetic vision view. SVX displays a virtual landscape of what lies ahead – complete with terrain, obstacles, runways and more. You can also use split-screen mode to simultaneously view your current attitude indication alongside ADS-B weather, datalink traffic or other flight information.
3D Vision view (without attitude) is also available as an option for pilots who fly without a GDL 39 3D.
With Garmin Pilot, declutter your cabin and cut down on the amount of paper you need for navigation. A wealth of electronic flight bag capabilities allow you to view paper charts and approach plates right on your device. Dynamic navigation maps allow you to filter charts by manually turning on or off different airspaces, airports and other features, as well as track up to your current aircraft heading. Split screen capability allows the pilot to simultaneously view the moving map and choose between another view like traffic or charts.
Garmin SafeTaxi® diagrams are integrated right into these maps and load seamlessly on approach or as you zoom into an airport. The app also comes with IFR enroute and VFR sectional charts you can select as your basemap, as well as Garmin FliteCharts®. The standard FliteCharts can be upgraded within the app with geo-referencing capability for dynamic graphical nav guidance from startup to shutdown.
Garmin Pilot allows you to quickly and easily annotate approach plates so you can highlight approach minimums, runways, or jot down notes like frequency assignments and squawk codes. Split screen capability allows the pilot to simultaneously view the moving map and choose between another view like traffic or charts.
A terrain and obstacle database provides high-resolution contour mapping to show your aircraft’s proximity to potentially hazardous terrain or obstacles like towers, as well as provide visual cautions and warnings as you near these obstructions.
Access the app’s features through an intuitive and easy-to-use icon-driven pilot interface that mirrors our latest avionics.
View comprehensive aviation weather, including NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, PIREPs, TFRs and lightning data.
