iGlide - Navigation app for glider pilots

iGlide is a gliding moving map software by AIR Avionics specifically developed for Apple® iOS® Devices. It can be run on Apple's iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch®. iGlide offers an entirely new level of situational awareness in navigation. Route planning has been completely re-designed and assists even in coping with the most challenging situations. Using iGlide in flight is fun and requires no pens, only fingers. iGlide is clear and revolutionarily simple.


  • iGlide Map

    The Map in iGlide is very detailed yet easy to read. It highlights important landmarks and adapts details to the selected zoom range in order not to clutter the display. Its high resolution terrain database always shows your current glide-range along the planned route.

  • iGlide Airspace

    iGlide comes with free regular airspace updates (most countries even weekly). Airspace overview, sideview and airspace Nav-Boxes bring intuitive airspace awareness. iGlide warns visually and acoustically of airspace infringements.

  • iGlide Hardware

    iGlide runs on all Apple iOS® Devices (2009 or newer). It works with iPad®, iPad mini®, iPod touch® and iPhone® and perfectly adjusts to available screen-space and orientation. You can use your copy of iGlide on up to five different devices all on one purchase.

  • iGlide FAI

    The FAI optimizer gives you information if your currently planned route is FAI conform in realtime. It makes it possible to easily re-plan your current task for the day and still be sure to fly FAI conform triangles.

  • iGlide Task

    Task-planning in IGlide is comprehensive yet simple to use. It integrates the most common FAI competition rules (US competition rules to be integrated 2014) and helps you flying complex tasks with its optimization features, for example the AAT optimizer.

  • iGlide Circle

    The circling-assistant helps you center thermals. It shows where the climbrate is best in your circle and gives you hints on where to fly to. If connected to a Butterfly Vario it shows you the current live-wind indicating areas of horizontal air movement pointing to the center of the thermal.

Screenshots and Videos

iGlide turns navigation into a walk in the park, with functions that really are helpful. It gives overview, even in highly complicated situations, takes the load off the pilot and gives more time to monitor airspace.
