iGlide. Our navigation app for glider pilots.

The power of simple.

iGlide is our gliding moving map app for Apple® iOS® devices like iPhone, iPad or iPod. iGlide offers many functions for beginners, for pilots starting their first steps flying cross country, and for pro pilots in competitions. It is clear, easy to use, and simple.

iGlide gives overview, even in highly complicated situations, takes the load off the pilot and gives more time to monitor airspace. 

  • Tasks

    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.

  • The 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.

  • Airspace Awareness

    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.

  • Hardware

    iGlide runs on all Apple iOS® Devices (2011 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.

  • FAI optimizer

    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.

  • Climb optimizer

    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.
