** NOTE: An Internet connection is required to use Flightwise Chart Explorer. This app cannot and should not be used for in-flight navigation; it is for reference only! ** 

Flightwise Chart Explorer displays aviation maps - VFR sectional charts and IFR enroute charts, as well as standard road and satellite maps. Animated NEXRAD weather radar is displayed on top of the map, allowing you to see how the weather will affect your flight plans. 

The map has the standard pinch/zoom capability which allows you to smoothly zoom and pan around the United States and see what the weather is like anywhere. 

(Windows Phone 8 Only):
Additional options include weather warnings and alerts, complete with push notifications, to warn you of severe weather in your area. Great for the start of thunderstorm and tornado season!  There's also a hurricane tracker, providing excellent details and projections for the path of storms as the season looms near.

Chart Explorer currently only shows maps in the United States, and only in the 48 contiguous states - not Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico. 

We're very receptive to feedback, and are looking to release frequent updates, so definitely contact us at service@flightwise.com and give us your opinions and wishlists!

    Great app, but I would like to be able to get TAF forecast, and METAR observation data for selected weather stations. The data is available so it shouldn't be too hard to provide.

    Works as advertised. Great app.

    Perfect app for the storm spotter

    As a pilot it is really nice to have current weather radar combined with VFR sectional charts. However, beware that the sectional charts are not current. As I would never navigate from an app such as this, I don't see that as much of a detractor. Besides, the sectional view is a little cluttered, so I normally use the grayscale view for everyday use. It would also be nice to have the option for a longer radar animation. 1 hour is barely enough to get a sense for the movement of a slow moving storm. 1.5 to 2 hours would be better. Nevertheless, this is an awesome app!

    Really like this app to check weather relative to a route. Outdated charts not such a big deal. It is a weather app, not a nav app. Just beware of that and fly as you normally would.

    Slow, does not cache sectionals.. Ok for last resort, if you have data connection & time.

    Just paid 5 bucks for this app and on seconds, found the entire Class B airspace in my area (Seattle) is entirely inaccurate on the VFR Sectional view. I don't expect this to be a Jeppesen or sectional replacement but to have the ENTIRE airspace be years out of date is ridiculous.

    Only additional info over their cheaper MyRadar app is an outdated sectional map view with blurred areas. Don't bother.

    Nice to have sectionals although outdated, but inconsistent functionality with the map slow to load or not at all.
