Cross Country Flight with Navigation App Review

I review the navigation app that I use when I fly – Canada Topo Maps. It’s not an aviation app but it works quite well for ultralight flying if you’re willing to take the time to input your favourite airports and waypoints.

That was really good very interesting. Canada must be such a great country to fly in. Do you just need to have a driving licence for the medical as they do in the USA and sort of over here in England Matt?

Nice short flight, love the new surroundings, looking forward to your winter flying in the area.

Matt,
If you have a Samsung phone or tablet, you can get Avare from the Google Play store for free. Then load the Halifax or other VFR sectionals as you need them. And when you load a particuliar sectional chart, the portion of the airport facility directory applicable to that sectional also downloads.

Avare is a really neat app for pilots, kind of like an economy version of Foreflight. It’s really all you need when flying ultralights/microlights. I use it extensively in my Quad City CH-1.

Nice flight and info on the app. It’s a good supplement to an aviation app because it provides more local detail. Good for off airport and location awareness. Cheers!
