Xavion App Description

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 in the event of engine failure. This, finally, gives you guidance after an engine failure that is based on energy-management all the way down, where the computer does the glide-planning for you… you just fly through the hoops to the runway. As well, Xavion tracks other airplanes via ADS-B, and memorizes their location to track their WAKE TURBULENCE, moving the wake turbulence down and with the wind over time, showing the wake turbulence as little spiraling tornados. Finally, an App that tracks and shows you the wake turbulence of other airplanes. As well, Xavion gets ADS-B weather if you have a portable receiver, and displays it, including the new icing, turbulence, and lightning products. As well, Xavion gets METARS and winds aloft from the internet if you have a WIFI or cell signal to help you plan before a flight! Also, Xavion checks your weight and balance, and even estimates your takeoff distance and compares that to the length of the runway that you are about to take off on to warn you if the available runway length from your current location is marginal for a safe take-off. Also, Xavion estimates time and fuel burn at all different altitudes to any destination, showing you the time and fuel burn required for each altitude enroute, so you can pick the best altitude. Xavion is free to download, and requires In-App purchase of current airport data ($9.99/month, or $99.00/year). As well, you may OPTIONALLY buy a Seattle Avionics Chart Data subscription for $149.00/year. This is the most user-friendly, powerful App that I can imagine, and I love flying with it. (We never release customer info, and the terms of use are listed at the launch of the App. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.)

  • Bait and switch

    Paid a one-time fee of $100 and was promised an app that would never require a monthly fee. Pure bait and switch and the developer refused my request for a refund. Shame on Austin Meyer.

    Simply in must-have for any pilot.
  • PRICELESS

    By Ray Mach 2
    Flying a single or a twin, flying IMC or VFR. Having a complete independent panel with synthetic vision and a glide path to nearest airport with a single push of a button is just PRICELESS. I have XAVION. Thank you Austin, you made my flight much more enjoyable.
  • Great for pro’s, massive for Students

    Connected with the sim, X-Plane, it rapidly accelerates the visual cues curve, scolds when necessary, teaches sitAware . Not seamless, but what is, in this world. Work it to,your advantage, to really fly or to play games,whatever you need
  • Useless Enigmatic App

    By Iaviator
    This App is absolutely useless for General Aviation. It lacks intuitiveness. It is cantankerous and enigmatic. It requires iPad with cellular data “GPS”. Amazingly Apple is so incompetent that they do not include s GPS chip in their regular iPads. If you couldn’t get X-Plane working on your pc years ago or today, you most likely cannot get this app working for you either. No help or directions is imbedded in the App.
  • Excellent Program

    I use this program with every flight I do using X Plane. A good learning device.
  • Unmatched Features

    In an age of almost equal parity between product brands there is still no match for what Xavion offers the pilot community. Very seldom do we get updates to the Xavion product and when we do we find an aviation breakthrough. I love this product and I thank Austin and his team for their contribution to my continued flight safety.

    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!
  • A must for SE IFR

    By FlyingCaesar
    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!
  • Scam Artist

    Meyers is a crook and a scam artist. He took money from hundreds of people with this app early on and then reneged on the deal. Good app. Unfortunately it is run by Myers the crook. Can't trust him. Zero integrity. And unfortunately we need to be able to trust the material in the app but when it's Myers is putting it in everything comes into question then. 👎
