Welcome to Apps For Aviators

We are aviators dedicated to providing aviation apps that are simple to use, making flying more safe, fun and affordable.

We offer several Android apps. All are free, open source, designed for most Android devices, are ad-free, and require no invasive Permissions.
*Note that our apps are thoroughly tested and are used routinely on a vast array of devices, so if you should encounter any problems please contact us on our Forum so that everyone can benefit from awareness of the problem and solutions.

Avare provides GPS active location on all FAA charts, Airport Diagrams and Approach Plates; along with CS (AF/D), weather & TFRs, Flight Plans and much more. Internet is only required for installing or updating the free app and free FAA resources – ground planning and in-flight operations work fine offline, even in “Airplane Mode” for maximum battery life. GPS (internal or external to the Android device) of course is required for active location services.
