*****Featured as one of the 10 Great Gifts for Travelers by Forbes***** *****Featured as one of the 10 Best Travel Tips of All Time by Condé Nast Traveler***** Do you feel discomfort during flight? Do you need more information about what’s going on at every step? Or, perhaps, you love to fly and just want to learn more about aviation and understand it better? SkyGuru provides passengers with detailed explanations of most the processes that are happening during the flight. All in REAL time! Flying with SkyGuru is just like flying next to an experienced pilot ---------- Imagine sitting next to a pilot who could explain every sound, every turn, every sensation you are feeling, warned you about any upcoming turbulent areas, and just turned your flying experience into a conscious process. SkyGuru – is your personal guide in the world of aviation. SkyGuru was created by a professional pilot Alex Gervash, director of “Flying without Fear” – a center for studying and treatment of aerophobia. The application receives information about an upcoming flight from professional aviation resources used by airlines around the world to plan their flight routes. With the help of your iPhone sensors and thousands of algorithms in the program, the app recognizes various stages of the flight process and accompanies you during the entire trip. It supports, teaches, comments, and explains everything that’s going on during the flight in real time. The application works in FLIGHT MODE during the actual flight! ---------- Available for free (light version): - Aviation weather forecast and explanation for departure and arrival airports. - Turbulence forecast for the shortest route between two airports. Additional information available (premium version): - Forecasts and warnings for most turbulent areas on flight route, including approximate time of entry and duration of each. - Description of weather conditions at the departure airport and explanations of how they may affect your sensations during take-off. - Calculation of the flight time with current winds. - Explanations of possible delays, waiting times for take-off, etc. - Real time explanations of most sounds, which could worry the passengers (e.g. landing gear sounds, changing flaps, etc.). - Explanations of possible “dipping / falling through” sensations due to vestibular apparatus’ incorrect perception of the actual plane position. - Advice on choosing your seat in an airplane and preferred boarding times according to your flight itinerary. - Updated information on weather conditions at your destination airport, their influence on landing approach and your sensations during it. - Warnings about higher probability for going around due to current weather conditions. - Turbulence graph and current G-force values created by turbulence. - Flight speed and altitude, given a stable GPS signal (available when seated by the window). - Airplane nose positions relative to horizon and airplane bank angles relative to horizon when turning. - 3D airplane model of its relative position in space with banks, ditches, and turbulence influence. - Explanations of expected maneuvers after take-off and shortly before landing. - Explanations of cabin procedures, such as: “why does the light blink,” “why do we open window blinds,” as well as answers to many other questions that may worry passengers. All in real time. - Unique helpful methods and exercises that are designed to assist passengers with aerophobia to overcome fear and make their flight more enjoyable. - Flight knowledge and aviation education, as well as interesting facts about airplane safety. --------- IMPORTANT NOTES! 1. Speed and altitude are only available with GPS signal. 2. The app can only be used on a REAL flight. 3. If you have any questions, please contact us. We are always happy to support you. 4. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.



  • Life changing.

    I've tried everything from videos to books to what not to deal with flights throughout the years.. but nothing came remotely close to this life changing app. It puts you back in control during the flight- you know exactly what is happening at every single moment. The turbulence forecast is extremely accurate (in the paid version that I have) and you know exactly what you will feel and when. I can't recommend this enough for people with flight anxiety. It will truly change your life.

    I am a frequent, but anxious flyer. I Downloaded 1 flight with SkyGuru and have the following feedback Good: From Pushback until the begginning of descent was pretty spot on. Takeoff was perfect. As things happened in the plane, the app gave a notification and an update. I liked the constant reinforcement and practicality of turbulence- that was very helpful. The turbulence meter was pretty good at predicting chop, I understand its not perfect, but this was reasonably close. OK: Finding a stable surface is easier said than done, i totally understand the logic but its not practical to keep your phone on your armrest the entire flight. Bad: i sent a customer service email 3 days ago and sadly am yet to recieve a reply. UPDATE: AFTER WRITING THE REVIEW THE DEVELOPER REACHED OUT AND IS 100% DEDICATED TO REPAIRING ANY BUGS WITH THE APP. Landing was not nearly as detailed as takeoff. Even after manually resetting 3x, the app thought i landed when at 10k feet. The takeoff and climb was so spot on, that i was disapointed that the landing was such a bust. The time was consistantly off. We landed about 20 minutes after the time predicted. All other flight apps and Jet blue said we'll land at 520, but this app insisted we'd be in at 505. We landed at 520. Overall a GOOD experience. I think once the app learns a bit more it'll be a really good app.
  • Amazing!!!
