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 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, and 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 Sagetech or iLevil receiver) and shows it on a moving map, and provides weather for all airports that report it. As well, Xavion gets METARS and winds aloft from the internet if you have a WIFI or cell signal before or during flight! Also, Xavion checks your weight and balance, medical and BFR currency, 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 length from your current location on the runway is too little for a safe take-off. Also, Xavion estimates time and fuel burn at all different altitudes to any destination you want to go to, and shows you 3-D “highway in the sky” hoops to get there. 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 by a Seattle Avionics Chart Data subscription for $149.00/year, or access your EXISTING Seattle Avionics Chart Data subscription freely. 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.)

  • Great for pro’s, massive for Students

    By RickyS in Va
    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.
  • PRICELESS

    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.
  • 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

    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. 👎
  • Life-saving tool

    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.
  • 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.
