In flight, Xavion constantly imagines engine-failed glides to every runway in
gliding range, and then shows you the safest-possible route as a
Highway-In-The-Sky to take to an airport in the event of engine failure. This,
finally, gives you guidance after an engine failure that is based...
Removed Seattle Avionics login for chart downloads?
Another update in response to the developer response: I am not talking about the monthly update I am talking about the charts (plates, vfr charts). Two months ago you had the ability to enter Seattle avionics login information in xavion to download these from Seattle avionics directly. It has now been removed without an explanation. Xavion is great once you configure and really get everything dialed in. The last time I looked a while ago it allowed us to use our existing Seattle Avionics login so we can download charts and plates. I already have a lifetime subscription from them. Where is this option now? EDIT: I see now, this was done with a very very vague description in 2.42 and sounds like an Apple product announcement: “New and improved! No logins required other than your Apple ID!” In other words, no way to use your existing subscription now you have to buy another one... It would be great to get some transparency about this change rather than sweeping it under the rug.
Excellent situation awareness, terrain avoidance and emergency landing guidance. Xavion works on an iPhone as well as it does on an iPad. I mount it next to my undersized cockpit console, and have complete panel back up in case of electrical failure. I use earbuds underneath my headset for audible terrain avoidance alerts. When I get ADS-B, I will also enjoy traffic alerts. Xavion works seamlessly with X-Plane for flight planning and proficiency simulation. With Seattle Avionics subscriptions (additional) do you have moving me up display on VFR Sectional, IFR Enroute charts and Approach Plates. All I would ask in addition to these features is a one touch transition between approach plates and Highway-in-the-sky guidance to the threshold.
Fantastic SA with the additional the Flight Director
With the addition of the Flight Director capability I have truly fallen in love with this app. I have it connected to my Stratux box and it is AMAZING how accurate it is to my actual altitude and airspeed. I’m still dialing in on how best to use the flight director capabilities but having it up and running all time and then able to hit the emergency button if something happens to give you guidance to the nearest airport is incredible. Also having additional 3D reference to approaches and the missed procedure is unprecedented in an iPad app. Looking forward to future improvements as the app is always getting better.
Xavion Top Rated
I have used Xavion for 3 years now and I believe it’s one of the best aviation apps to give you a sense of security while in a single engine airplane flying day or night as it continuously looks for airports you could glide to based on your aircrafts glide characteristics. All you have to do is fly the highway-in-the-sky hoops! I have it turned on with every flight on a separate iPad. In addition, it can be used with X-Plane to practice engine out emergencies as well as in the actual aircraft. Regards, Don
I never fly without this app running and mounted on my panel - this is huge safety insurance. Try it - you AND your passengers will feel a new level of relaxation! NOTE: I had a self-inflicted mess up in my craft configuration entries and emailed Austin for help. He spent considerable time and several back and forth emails to find and explain my problem! That is a HUGE benefit in a program as detailed and important as this one can be if you'll let it! Wonderful support!
Peace of mind
As a student GA pilot, this app gives me that extra peace of mind in case my engine quits. I keep it on my iPhone 6 Plus mounted on the panel. It’s a little work to setup, but once that’s done it works perfectly. I also use it when flying X-Plane and have tested it countless times. It led me to a safe landing every time. Won’t fly without it. Austin, thank you for creating this one of a kind safety tool. I wonder how many lives you’ll end up saving.
Simply the best
This software is indispensable as a pilot. I run it on my iPhone and my iPad runs ForeFlight. Xavion is always on telling me where to land if something happens. Austin is very responsive to any issues you may have with the software and really is trying to make this the best end to end solution. There is a learning curve and some prework to get it dialed in but then it does all the thinking for you. Must have in my eyes.
A God-send for all pilots!
Xavion takes the stress of that "Oh, crap" moment out of fling when your engine suddenly goes silent. No more panic of trying to find a place to land. A push of a button and the nearest reachable airport is shown along with the best route to get there. No more guessing if you can reach an airport in an engine out situation. This is especially handy in IFR or VFR at night situations!! A blessing, indeed!!!!
It just works
As a new pilot I found this app adds to my sense of situational awareness on many levels- from an accurate weight & balance envelope to confidence in knowing where to land upon a power failure. The weight & balance envelope feature is fantastic for my 2 place trainer where useful payload weight capacity is on the light side and balance tends aft heavy. I have tested the engine out feature, and yes the app will guide you via hoops right down to the nearest airport runway in an engine failure. I use Xavion running FlyQ on an i-pad mini on a RAM mount with a Bose A20 headset, a bluetooth Garmin GLO WAAS GPS and a Uvionix Ping ADSB-in for weather & traffic. I am looking forward to using Xavion in the future with the levil BOM with AHRS.
Another great update!
I have flown with this app for several years. It gives you the piece of mind you need to always know your path to the best suitable airport. Amazingly put together. Runs great when populated with your aircrafts individual data points. Developer is always providing great updates and always improving the app.
Remains the Cutting Edge
This App continues to offer the most sophisticated features still not offered in the other best in class products. I run Xavion alongside Seattle Avionics FlyQ EFB to add just another form of redundancy, both coupled with iLevil AW3. The original mission statement of glide guidance to a best suitable airport remains a favorite feature. Thanks for all your excellent development and support.
Love the new thoughtful features with airspace visualization in 3D! Although it takes some time to setup, this is a super powerful app and any pilot should understand their airplane performance (or fly it!) enough to populate. Just awesome... and it keeps getting better! Looking forward to next update.
A must for SE IFR
Can you imagine flying single engine IFR at night or not even IFR but at night? Xavion will help you tremendously and could be a lifesaver. And what helps you too is the ability to practice at home with X-plane simulation. Fly in the area you gonna fly and fly in the plane you're gonna fly, take your iPad with Xavion and practice!
Omg this is a big help for helping with instruments. It greatly helps a lot when you have to set up something else and have to look at some instruments
Horrible to test drive... acts like a hijacker virus. would give Zero stars if I could
Even you reach the time limit on the free version, when test driving this app, it not only stops and makes you ask for more minutes, it hijacks your whole iPad, and like a Virus, ALL you other apps now freeze and require extending time on Every One! I even erased and rebooted the iPad - and there still ghost hijacks. The nearest airport vector looked promising, but not when Xavion is behaving like a virus! As a CFII I can’t afford that. User beware!!
