There’s a pretty good chance you already have the Myradar app downloaded on your smartphone or tablet. The most popular Nexrad weather radar app in the world, it’s been downloaded more than 22 million times and has 9 million active users. Now pilots can also overlay aviation-specific maps on the app to enhance Myradar’s usefulness for flight planning. The maps, including full U.S. VFR sectionals and IFR low and high en-route charts, are available on both the free and $1.99 Pro versions. Once the app is downloaded to your device, you can subscribe to the aviation charts for $24.99 a year, a price that includes automatic updates timed to coincide with the FAA’S release cycle.
