Digital Sectional EFB

Atlas Programming
Now with Highway in the Sky! Once activated, synthetic vision now includes the ability to represent your route via highway in the sky.

Charts Available
All maps/charts can be pan and zoomed using the standard gestures. Charts can be layered on top of each other for a unique SA perspective. For example, IFR charts are transparent and can be viewed on top of VFR sectionals.
• IFR Atlantic and Trans-Atlantic to Europe
• IFR High and Low
• Helicopter Route Charts
• VFR Sectionals
• WAC Charts
• TAC Charts

Costs and Functionality
We only charge you for the standard aviation consumables (charts, procedures, terrain database, A/FDs) not any of the actual app functionality except Synthetic Vision. You can access these products either by purchasing an unlimited subscription for 3 or 12 months or blocks of credits. Please refer to the website for more information about which is more economical for your type of flying.

• Weather overlays all other layers of the map (CONUS, AK, HI, GUAM)
• Full DUATS integration: segment planning, flight filing, weather briefings and weather imagery; stored on the device after downloading for future reference when there's no connectivity.
• Synthetic vision while in flight and also offline in explore mode (one time purchase): Now includes highway in the sky!
• Route Drawing; Flight Plan saving and loading and even copying between different devices; In-flight changes done simply by tapping and holding on the map.
• Updated search to support viewing entire airway. Type in just the airway ID and the entire airway is shown on the map.
• Controlled airspace shown on the map and can dynamically adjust based on your altitude and position
• Geo-referenced approach plates even on the map! - We are encoding the plates on-demand, so just send us a list of airports you're looking for and we can encode them. More info here:

The included base map is for reference only and, to keep the app download size as small as possible, has a limited zoom. This app does not require any network connectivity (except to download charts and updates) to operate.

We are working hard to create a great tool for pilots. Please feel free to email us with suggestions, issues, criticism, quotes of the day or pictures of your bird. We love talking to other pilots!

Just in case it's not obvious (and to keep the lawyers happy): Digital Sectional should not be used as a primary navigation tool.

Thank you and enjoy Digital Sectional!
