Airmate is a free and easy to use flight planning and weather app for pilots, including many social sharing features.

Thanks to Airmate flight planning form, you will get instant access to airport data and aviation maps, up to date weather and NOTAMs.

IFR and VFR airport plates are freely available in US (FAA charts), all Europe, and more than 200 other countries. Many of them are georeferenced and could be overlaid on the aviation chart. A powerful Plate Manager allows to download in advance all airport plates in a country, they could be easily printed and viewed.

During the flight, the moving map will display the aircraft location along the route, show airports and aeronautical data details, warn you if your planned route is crossing restricted areas. A profile view is available to display terrain elevation, crossed area and forecasted weather across the route. Airmate includes a worldwide aeronautical database updated free of charge with airports, navigation beacons, waypoints, airways, obstacles, regulated and restricted areas. Topographic maps of numerous countries may be downloaded free of charge, as well as additional aviation map overlays such US Sectionals or IFR enroute charts. When coupled with an external ADS-B traffic detector, Airmate will display nearby traffic on the moving map and receive FIS-B weather.

Thanks to the Auto Route feature, you could search and select the best route for your flight, and then file your VFR or IFR flight plan (in the USA using your account). Once filed, your flight plan could easily be managed, delayed or cancelled.
