Flyskyhy App Description

Flyskyhy forms your flight instrument during flight and shows all information you need for that. You get the normal data like altitude, climb rate, ground speed, and glide angle. But it also calculates and shows the current wind direction and strength, very important for your safety. A moving and rotating map shows your current flying position and flight trail. It indicates where you have gone up (in a thermal), and where you have had faster than normal decline. With that, you can easily find back that thermal that you lost. The map also shows the nearest known landing spots, and whether they are reachable by normal glide, given your current altitude and wind direction. Integration with Bluetooth varios SensBox, FlyNet, GoFly iPico, XC-Tracer, BlueFlyVario, or SkyDrop gives accurate altitude and lift information. That turns your iPhone into an full-fletched GPS-vario, including vario tones. The app makes a full log of your flight, that can be analyzed afterwards. Besides normal data like start and landing positions, duration of flight, and an altitude graph of the flight, Flyskyhy also calculates the scoring distances for you. So you can immediately see whether you have broken that FAI triangle record. Your live location is reported on or if you desire, so anybody can follow your flight while it is happening. If you are flying together with friends, then their location is shown on your map during your flight. So you never have to wonder anymore whether they are in front of or behind you. The flight display has multiple screens which are all fully configurable. You can move all elements to other spots, delete and add elements, and resize them. Through in-app purchases, the app also supports airspaces and waypoints. The app is optimised for paragliding and hang gliders, but can be used with all kinds of airsports. Main features during the flight; • Altitude, climb rate, ground speed, air speed, direction, glide angle and many more • Wind strength and direction • Moving map of the flying area • Spots where you have had lift, great for thermal coring • Shows whether you can still reach a landing spot with the current altitude and wind • Live tracking of your flight on or • Shows live location of your friends during flight After the flight: • Full logbook of all your flights • Basic flight data like start/landing, duration, height difference, distance flown, and many more • Calculation of 5-points, open triangle, and FAI triangle distances • Graph of altitude and climb rate • Signed IGC and KML log files of flights • Transfer the log to iTunes or send by email • Upload the flight directly to XContest, ParaglidingForum, DHV-XC, and other Leonardo servers • Open flight in Google Earth on the iPhone • Replay the flight and relive it! By purchasing the Waypoints Extension you get access to: • A fully zoomable and scrollable map with the waypoints and optimised route. The map also shows start and landing spots, as well as restricted airspaces (with the Airspace Extension) • Enter new waypoints, either on the map or by specifying the parameters • Full route support with start time, goal, entry/exit points, etc. • Many instruments to guide you along the route • Visible and audible indication when a waypoint has been reached • Complete waypoints organiser • Import and export of various waypoint file formats By purchasing the Airspace Extension you get access to: • Airspaces of 30 countries • Display of airspaces on the map with configurable colors and formats • Display of your vertical position w.r.t. airspaces • Visible and audible warnings when approaching and entering an airspace • Shows local airspaces by touching a spot on the map Note: a live internet connection is required for live tracking of your and your friends locations Note: continuous GPS and screen usage makes the battery drain faster than normal

  • Great but needs a few tweaks

    By Mamabula1
    This is a great app. I was a bit surprised, however, that it does not use the barometric sensors that exist in most smart phones today. I would think that provides better accuracy.
  • Needs to use barometer for altitude

    By Oriona51
    I like this app, but it needs a little improvement. Mainly it needs to use the built in pressure sensor of smartphones. The gps altitude is always displaying inaccurately. It needs to at least use the barometer to display height above ground and not gps. Or at the very least the ability to choose either gps or pressure altitude. Pressure altitude is way more reliable. That’s what drones and virtually all aviation uses. Because it does not utilize pressure altitude, I had to buy an altimeter watch that does. But id prefer to use only one device. Especially for data and flight telemetry. If altitude is displayed wrong, then the recorded telemetry is also wrong. Sometimes by several hundred feet. The last con is the map. Tap to zoom is not intuitive. It should use pinch to zoom.
  • بهترین وریو

    By maysam payrovi
    بهترین وریو متر و سنسنور حساس نسبت به بقیه نرم افزار ها داره
  • Works well for gliders too

    By Kjartan S
    I bought this for just the flight track recorder, but then added the thermal centering extension. Works very well! Much easier to get the most from a thermal and stay attached in it. Very pleased with it. Wish I had a bigger phone.
  • Happy to be HIGH

    Fantastic app. I use this app, in conjunction with a bluefly vario. I love it. I also use it when I fly my powered parachute and experimental amphibious fixed wing.
  • Great App! Please improve auto starts and stops

    By Jay23E
    Love this app when it works but as a PPG flyer sometimes on multiple hops it doesn’t record all flights. Today I had 3 full stops but only one recorded. It would be great to recognize touch and goes as well. It doesn’t always fail to record. Thanks for creating this app.
  • Fantastic paragliding vario app!

    By 7crwolf
    I’ve been using FlySkyHy as my primary vario for 2 years now. Works great with any iPhone with a barometer, and even better with any paired micro-vario, such as the cheap (but excellent) BlueFly. I use it to log all of my flights automatically, and it well and truly has the capability of replacing expensive dedicated costly varios. The new thermal centering tool in the XC pack is an incredible addition to an already fantastic app!
  • Altimeter issues

    By Ac3s2
    App worked great in the past? But is no longer reporting on my altitude. Not sure if this is due to an IOS issue or maybe Apple Watch integration, but it’s annoying. Otherwise the app has been great.
  • Crashed instant upon opening the first time

    By Turbotj
    Has potential but many bugs. Maybe next year they will get this figured out.
  • Almost 5 Stars

    By Sampson Smarty Pants
    I wish there was a tabulation feature or page. You call it a flight log and while it records all the flight data it doesn't display cumulative flight time. Please list the total flight time elapsed and total number of flights flown. You could provide further info such as flights per month and per year if you were so inclined. During flight playback you can't zoom. And I also don't know if tapping to zoom in/out is better or worse than pinching but it took me a little while to figure that out.
