Key features of FlyQ EFB include geo-referenced moving maps, runway diagrams and approach plates; split screen view; 3D Synthetic Vision; Highway in the Sky display; Levil AHRS connection; and smart auto-routing based on predicted winds aloft.

“Our iPhone and Android app, FlyQ Pocket, has been embraced by our members, with more than 60,000 downloads since its launch in April,” said Chris Ward, AOPA vice president, eMedia. “AOPA’s members asked for an even more powerful app, and now they have FlyQ EFB, which offers users the tools they need to make flight planning smarter and more convenient.”
The AOPA FlyQ EFB requires a subscription purchase. AOPA members can buy subscriptions directly from AOPA and save 30 percent at www.aopa.org/flyq/tablet. Users must download the app from the iTunes App Store to access their subscription.
