This is the application you cannot afford to fly without. SkyRadar provides you with vital flight information that enables you to fly with increased safety. The easy to use map based interface displays FAA flight database airport and airspace information along with terrain information. In addition, the application displays your GPS location, altitude and heading in real-time and allows the user to set destinations based on database lookup or map location.

When combined with the SkyRadar ADS-B Receiver, NEXRAD, TAF, METAR, NOTAM and local air traffic data will be sent via wireless connection to your iPad and overlaid on the map display. Please visit http://www.skyradar.net for more information about the SkyRadar ADS-B Receiver.

SkyRadar allows for a 1 month free evaluation period where all application features are enabled. After the evaluation period users will be prompted to activate SkyRadar with a 6 month or 1 year subscription for a low cost. The subscriptions provide access to airport and airspace information updates released every 28 days. Without a valid subscription, SkyRadar will operate as normal, but will only display airports with runways longer than 8000 feet.
