    "I wish this device had come out when I first started flying. Back in 1985, I had to use a water bottle like everyone else. Works perfectly as a sight level, but I've never used it to determine cloud height. Still too timid to trust a phone app with that."

    "This is one of the best weather apps on the market. It provides up to date weather information including wind patterns, aviation data sigments, and radar data. The doppler radar data is high definition and as up to date as you can get. This is great for a user with advanced data needs, such as pilots. Pilots who do not have access to wifi or data in the air may want to look for a solution that doesn't require wifi however"

    "It's basically a logbook, but it's coming with lot of tools useful for pilots. If you are in Airline, no need to log your flighttime, just press a key and your log is filled.
