Formation Transit Timings
19 June 2017

It's the little things: we've always drawn scheduled formation transits on our maps together with little arrows to show you where the aircraft are going and in which direction. For Red Arrows transits, the arrows are appropriately red. In the next version of SkyDemon we will also draw the timings...

Android Performance Improvements
07 June 2017

Android users: good news! We have dramatically improved the speed of georeferenced plate display ready for the next version of SkyDemon. We've been testing with some of the most complex PDFs in our library and are seeing a consistent tenfold increase in performance.

Pilot Feedback

What's Here
18 April 2017

The trade shows we attend are a great way for us to identify potential areas of improvement in our software usability.

Airfield Feedback
15 March 2017

Have you ever wished SkyDemon could tell you the landing fee at an airfield, or whether food is available? How about just knowing the experiences of other pilots who have flown there recently? The forthcoming version of SkyDemon expands upon our existing fuel price sharing technology to integrate...

Traffic Display

We are prototyping a new dedicated traffic display instrument, which could potentially be displayed fullscreen on your phone alongside your tablet running the standard SkyDemon interface, or possibly in a popup on your tablet. The traffic display is designed to be simple, intuitive, and easy to a...

SkyDemon 3.7.1
16 January 2017

SkyDemon 3.7.1 is out now. In this version we have enhanced the way track logs are shown on the map, as well as in virtual radar, by making it clear where gaps in the recording took place. These gaps are normally caused by a temporary GPS signal outage while navigating. Weight and Balance ha...

Simpler Weight and Balance
14 December 2016

Weight and Balance can be tricky. We've noticed quite a few people struggle with getting their weight and balance profiles fully set up in SkyDemon, and actually a lot of you fly aircraft without the complexities of an acceptable loading envelope and centres of gravity for each loading point. The...
